The pheasant, the hare and the stupid rooster

During one of my morning runs, I encountered a pheasant, a hare and a rooster talking busily on a dirt path. They seemed to be doing serious business, and I seemed to disturb them.

Panic! Panic!


Because when I came near them, they scattered in a big panic. The pheasant took the first turn to the left into the bushes. So did the hare. But the stupid rooster was in such a panic, he ran straight ahead, not knowing where to turn next! All the while clucking nervously.

Men!


'Men!' I thought with deep disdain, as I ran along with that dumb rooster ahead of me. '

If I'ld had a gun he would be so easy to shoot!'

Luckily the rooster finally realized his mistake and dove into a bush.

He survived, no thanks to himself!

I'm sure there's an important life lesson in this story somewhere. If you know what it is, please tell me in the comments!

  2. Funny! I think the most exciting thing I've seen out there is a deer or a fox--your menagerie might be fun to stumble across!
