The Wolf and The Heron
The Wolf and The Heron :
The wolf had swallowed a fishbone and went to ask the heron to pull it out of his throat. 'I will reward you handsomely for your help,' he promised the heron.
The heron agreed and in an instant, put his long beak down the throat of the wolf and pulled out the fishbone. At this, the wolf thanked the heron and began to walk away.
'What about the reward you promised?' the heron shouted after him.
'What?' the wolf replied. 'You put your head between my jaws and I didn't bite if off! Isn't that reward enough?'
