The Fox and the Hyena
Once upon a time there was a hyena and a fox. And when they went together on the way the hyena found a bull, while the fox found a cow, and again the hyena found a knife while the fox found a bundle of reeds.
And the fox says, “If I lose one of the reeds I can use another. How about you? If you lose the knife, what would you use?”
And the hyena says, “Give me the reeds and I will give you the knife.”
“OK,” she says.
“And again, when I butcher my cow the cow will not shout, while your bull will shout.”
And the hyena says, “OK, give me your cow and I will give you my bull.”
And see, they exchanged.
And as they went they found a house. The house the hyena found had one entrance, while the house the fox found was half demolished and had a lot of holes.
And the fox says to the hyena, “If an enemy comes through this hole I can go this way, and if another enemy comes that way I can go this way, while your house has only one entrance and if an enemy comes through that entrance which way would you go out?”
And he says, “OK, now let me exchange with you. Now take my house and I’ll take your house.”
And they exchanged.
And in the meantime the fox says to the hyena, “OK, I’m going to fetch water and keep my cow. Probably it may give birth.”
And he said, “OK."
While she was in the field, the cow gives birth and the hyena takes the placenta and puts it in the buttock of the bull.
And when the fox comes back she asked him, “Did my cow give birth?”
He said, “No, it’s my calf, my bull that gives birth.”
And she says, “Does a bull give birth?”
He says, “Yes.”
She says, “No.”
And they say, “Let’s go to a judge.”
And on their way they found the chimpanzee.
And the hyena asks the chimpanzee, “What are you doing here?”
He says, “I am taking water.”
The hyena again asked, “Can anyone get water from a rock?”
And the chimpanzee says, “Can anyone get a kid from a bull?”
And the chimpanzee says, “Can a bull give birth to a calf?”
And finally, the hyena was defeated by this logic.
