The Lion and the Fox
 
    As of his old age the lion wasn't able to catch wild animals and he thought to a trick: he hid into a cave, pretending to be sick. The wild animals came to see him and he ate all of those that entered there.
    The fox realized the trick so he stopped at the entrance of the cave and said:
    "Hey, lion, how are you?" 
    The lion answered: "Not so well. But why donut you want to come in?"
    The fox said: "I'm not coming because of the footprints: many go in, but none goes out!"
    When the fox preaches take care of your geese!
