The Tale Of The Two Ravens
Once upon a time there was a raven sitting on a nice, solid branch of a big oak, allowing the bird to have a great view over the fields beneath him. The raven didn’t do much, he was simply sitting on his ass. After some time another raven spotted the solid branch and the first raven and decided to sit directly beside him. The second raven asked the first raven:
“Hey pal, what are you up to?”
“Nothing”, the first raven answered, “I am just sitting on my ass.”
The second raven was seemingly impressed by the beauty of his new friends’ words and answered: “What a great idea, let me join you!”
After some time a little rabbit came across the big oak, when he suddenly realized two ravens sitting on their asses on a solid branch.
“What are you guys doing?”, the rabbit asked.
“Not much, we are just sitting on our asses”, the ravens answered.
The rabbit also liked the idea and looked for a shady, but cosy spot beneath the big oak.
Time passed and a fox came by. Firstly, he wanted to attack the rabbit, but then he realised that the rabbit was not alone: There were to ravens unmistakably sitting their asses on this solid branch and also the rabbit didn’t seem to do any more.
“What are you three guys doing there?”
“Hardly anything, we are just sitting our asses”, the three animals answered, and the fox joined the rabbit beneath the tree.
The four animals spent several hours in this position, living in peace and perfect harmony.
Suddenly, out of thin air, a really loud explosion was hearable, followed by a second. The rabbit was smashed against the oak because of the power of the gun the hunter has used. But also the fox was dead immediatly after the missile has hit his head trough his right eye.
One of the ravens leaned towards the other “See, sitting on one’s ass is only possible in a higher position.”
