UNDER A NUT TREE

A PIG STUFFED HERSELF WITH NUTS AND THEN SLEPT
UNDER THE NUT TREE. WHEN SHE WOKE UP SHE STARTED
TO DIG WITH HER SNOUT. A RAVEN WAS SITTING IN
THE TREE AND SAID TO THE PIG, "YOU ARE HARMING
THE TREE WITH YOUR DIGGING! THE TREE MIGHT WHITHER."
THE PIG SAID, "LET IT WHITHER, I DON'T CARE. I
ONLY CARE ABOUT NUTS."
THE TREE THEN SAID, "YOU STUPID IDIOT! IF YOU
WOULD RAISE YOUR HEAD YOU WOULD SEE THAT THE NUTS
GROW ON ME!"
