Story # 1
It's a fine sunny day in the forest and a lion is sitting
outside his cave,
lying in the sun. Along comes a fox, out on a walk.
Fox: "Do you know the time, because my watch is broken"
Lion: "Oh, I can easily fix the watch for you"
Fox: "Hmm... But it's a very complicated mechanism, and your
big claws will
only destroy it even more"
Lion: "Oh no, give it to me, and it will be fixed"
Fox: "That's ridiculous! Any fool knows that lazy lions with

Lion: "Sure they do, give it to me and it will be fixed"
The lion disappears into his cave, and after a while he
comes back with the
watch which is running perfectly. The fox is impressed, and
continues to lie lazily in the sun, looking very pleased
Soon a wolf comes along and stops to watch the lazy lion in
Wolf: "Can I come and watch TV tonight with you, because
mine is broken"
Lion: "Oh, I can easily fix your TV for you"
Wolf: "You don't expect me to believe such rubbish, do you?
There is no way
that a lazy lion with big claws can fix a complicated TV"
Lion: "No problem. Do you want to try it?"
The lion goes into his cave, and after a while comes back
with a perfectly
fixed TV. The wolf goes away happily and amazed.
Inside the lion's cave. In one corner are half a dozen small
looking rabbits who are busily doing very complicated work
detailed instruments. In the other corner lies a huge lion
pleased with himself.

Rabbit: "No problem. Do you want to see why?"
The rabbit and the wolf go into the burrow and again the
rabbit returns by
himself, after a few minutes, and goes back to typing.
