NARRATOR: Once upon a time there was a donkey who was walking through the woods, when suddenly he stepped over a sharp thorn.


DONKEY: Ha, ya, ya, ya, ya it doesn’t hurt, but I want to cry.  No, I won’t cry!. Yes, I’ll cry!.


NARRATOR: And the donkey cried and cried.  Then he put his foot again on the floor.


DONKEY: Ha, ya, ya, ya, ya,  it hurts!.


NARRATOR: The donkey cried and cried once again.  Suddenly he saw a wolf.


DONKEY:  Oh, no! That wolf is watching me.  I am sure he will eat me, and I can’t escape from him!.  What am I going to do?.


NARRATOR: After a few minutes he decided to talk to the wolf.


DONKEY: Ha, ya, ya, ya, ya Mr. Wolf. Ha, ya, ya, ya, ya Mr. Wolf. 


WOLF: What’s wrong?.


DONKEY: Ha, ya, ya, ya, ya  Mr. Wolf,  look at me!  I am suffering.  Please, don’t let me die.   Ha, ya, ya, ya, ya Mr. Wolf, what big teeth you have.   You can use your teeth to remove this prickly thorn from my hoof.


WOLF: Do you really think so?.


DONKEY: Sure.  Before I die try to remove it, then you can eat me.


WOLF:  If I remove the thorn, why should you die?.


DONKEY: Because I am not well ha, ya, ya, ya,ya.  Do what you have to do.  Now!.


WOLF: Very well.   I will use my teeth to remove it.


DONKEY: Will it hurt?.


WOLF: Don’t be scared.  Just stretch your leg.


DONKEY: Ha, ya, ya, ya, ya, as soon as he pulls out the thorn I will kick him.


WOLF: You are free!.  The thorn is gone!.


NARRATOR: The donkey kicked the wolf with his heels as hard as he could breaking his teeth, and then he ran away.


WOLF: Oh no!.   poor me!.   I wanted to help you, and now I don’t even have my teeth!

An Ass feeding in a meadow saw a Wolf approaching to seize him, and immediately pretended to be lame.  The Wolf, coming up, inquired the cause of his lameness.  The Ass replied that passing through a hedge he had trod with his foot upon a sharp thorn.  He

requested that the Wolf pull it out, lest when he ate him it should injure his throat.  The Wolf consented and lifted up the foot, and was giving his whole mind to the discovery of the thorn, when the Ass, with his heels, kicked his teeth into his mouth and galloped away.  The Wolf, being thus fearfully mauled, said, “I am rightly served, for why did I attempt the art of healing, when my father only taught me the trade of a butcher?’
