The Elephant and the Mouse

As a farm boy growing up in Iowa Aesop’s Fables was one of my favorite books as it contained many animal stories which ended with a moral. Here’s a story that wasn’t in the version we had on the shelf.

An elephant is walking through the bush one day when he hears a high-pitched squeak coming from a mouse trapped at the bottom of a shallow pit.

“Please help me,” the trapped mouse cries. “You see, the walls of the pit are too slippery, and I cannot climb out.”

“No problem,” the elephant says, squatting down low enough to allow the mouse to use his penis like a ramp.

A month later, the mouse is walking through the bush when he hears a bugle-like call for help from the elephant trapped at the bottom of a huge pit.

“Please help me,” the elephant cries. “You see, the walls of this pit are too slippery, and I cannot climb out.

“No problem,” the mouse says crouching as low as he can so the elephant can grab onto his penis and pull himself out. Realizing that this won’t work, the mouse says, “Hold on, I’ll be right back.”

The mouse returns with his red Ferrari sports car. “Hook your trunk around the bumper,” he tells the elephant. The elephant does so, and the mouse inches the car forward until the elephant is free.

The moral of the story: You don’t need a large penis if you’ve got a red Ferrari.
