A fancy lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her faithful little poodle named Fifi, along for the company.One day Fifi starts chasing butterflies and before long, discovers that she’s lost. Wandering about, she notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.
The clever poodle thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep trouble now!” Noticing some bones on the ground close by, she immediately settles down to chew on the bones with her back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap Fifi exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was onedelicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here.”
Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. “Whew!” says the leopard, “That was close! That poodle nearly had me!”
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but Fifi sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!
Now, Fifi sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do next?” But instead of running, she sits down with her back to the attackers, pretending she hasn’t seen them yet. Just when they get close enough to hear, the poodle says, “Where’s that lazy monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!”
The moral of the story is; use the smarts God gave you, to save yourself from harm.
