The Frog and The Ox
The Frog and The Ox :
A frog decided to become as big as an ox.
So it began to breathe in and in and every time it swallowed more air, it did in fact to become bigger.
But it soon began to tire of its efforts.
'Am I big enough yet?' it asked hopefully of its many watching companions.
Then they had another look at the ox and shook their heads, 'No, a bit more.'
So the ambitious frog kept on puffing itself up and up ..... until it burst like a balloon! "Do not make fool of yourself to make others merry."
