         A dog gets seperated from his owner while on
safari. He notices some bones nearby, and an idea hits
him. He settles down comfortably to chew on the bones,
with his back to the leopard. Just as the leopard is
about to pounce, the dog exclaims loudly:

         "Man, that was one delicious leopard I just
ate! I wonder if there's any more around here!

         Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack in
mid stride, a look of terror on his face, and quietly
slinks off into the bush again, thinking, "Whew! That
was close! That demon dog almost got me!"

         Meanwhile, a monkey that had been watching the
whole scene from the top of a nearby tree, figures he
can put his information to good use, and trade it with
the leopard for protection. So off he scuttles, but the
dog sees him heading after the leopard at great speed,
and figures something is going on.

         The monkey soon catches up with the leopard,
cuts a deal, and tells him the whole story. The leopard,
furious at being fooled so easily, exclaims, "That
dog! I'm gonna get him for that!

         "So the stupid dog thinks he can make a fool of
me, lord of the wilderness, does he? We'll show him who
eats who around here! Come on, monkey: jump on my back,
and we'll go get him!"

         The monkey jumps on, and the two of them head
off in search of the dog. The dog sees the leopard
coming from a long way off, this time with the monkey
on his back. "What a sneaky little monkey!", thinks the
dog to himself. "Now what am I going to do?" But instead
of running, the dog sits down on the ground, his back to
the attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and
waits for them to get close enough to hear him. "Where's
that rascal monkey!" exclaims the dog, loudly, "Never
can trust him! I sent him off half an hour ago to
bring me another leopard, and he's still not back!!"
