Bat and the Weasels

posted in Miscellaneous |

A BAT who fell upon the ground was caught by a Weasel. The Bat pleaded to be spared his life. The Weasel refused, saying that all weasels were by nature the enemy of all birds and he was no exception.

The Bat assured the Weasel that he was not a bird, but a mouse and was promptly set free, with the Weasel apologizing for his mistake.

Shortly afterwards the Bat again fell to the ground and was caught by another Weasel, whom he likewise entreated not to eat him.

The second Weasel said that he had a long standing feud with mice and hated all mice. The Bat assured him that he was not a mouse, but a bat and escaped for a second time.
