Sun the Ice
Once, a simpleton’s wife told him to buy some ice.
Two hours later, he didn’t come back.
She wanted to know why he didn’t come back and went out to have a look. She saw he wasstanding in the sun at the gate and watching the ice melting.
“What’s the matter?” She asked him. “Why don’t you bring it in?”
“I saw the ice was wet and I was afraid that you would scold me so I’m running it dry.” The simpleton answered.
Two Little Monkeys
The monkey mother has two little monkeys. She likes the younger, not the other.
One day, they were playing in a forest when a wolf came，running at them. The monkey ran away with the younger monkey in a hurry and left the older alone. She climbed up a tree andheld the younger in her arms.
After some time, the wolf went away slowly. The monkey took the baby out of her arms. She was surprised to see that the baby had died, for the baby was held in arms too highly. Very long time later, she remembered to look for the older baby. The older baby was hiding in awood. So he saved himself.
The Ox and the Dog
An ox and a dog serve for the same farmer.
One day the dog arrogantly says: “How grand I am! In the daytime, I watch out for the cattlein the meadows; at night, I guard the house. But you…”
“Me? How about me?” the ox says
“You can only plough or draw a cart,” the dog slightly says.
“Yes. It’s true,” the ox says. “But if I don’t plough, what do you guard?”
