An old dog gets lost in the jungle and is sitting under a tree trying to work out how to make his way back home when he spots a young leopard bounding towards him with hungry intent.
Thinking quickly he spots some bones on the ground nearby and immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back towards the approaching ca
Just as the leopard is about to leap, the old boy exclaims loudly "Goodness, that was a really delicious leopard. I wonder if there's any more around here".
On hearing this the leopard stops in mid-stride and slinks away into the trees. "God!" said the leopard to himself "That old sod nearly had me!".
Meantime, a monkey who had been watching the entire scene decides he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. Off he goes after the leopald with great speed but the old dog spots him and works out that there's treachery afoot.
The monkey catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal with the leopard.
The young leopard is furious at being made to look foolish by the old dog and says "Right, monkey, hop on my back while I go and sort out this conniving canine.
The old dog spots the leopard approaching with the monkey on his back and sits down with his back to them, pretending that he hasn't seen them yet and just when they get close enough to hear, he says "Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!"
The moral of this tale ....
Age and cunning will always overcome youth and treachery.
Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience.
