The Cat and The Hens

The Cat and The Hens :

A cat had heard that all the hens in a chicken coop had fallen ill. He had been thinking for a long time of a way to get the coop door open and at last this seemed like a very good opportunity.

He dressed up as a doctor with a bag full of instruments and medicines and off he went to the chicken coop.

'Good day, hens, how are you feeling? I've come to give you a check up. Please open the door.'

But the chickens all answered together, 'Thanks very much, but we'll all feel a lot better if you would just go away, thank you.' Because, "Wisdom is greater than strength."
