A lion woke up one morning feeling really rowdy and mean. He stalked out of his cave, cornered a small monkey, and roared, "Who is mightiest of all jungle animals?"
The trembling monkey says, "You are, mighty lion!”
Later, the lion confronts a wildebeest, bellowing, "Who is the mightiest of all jungle animals?"
The terrified wildebeest stammers, "Oh great lion, you are by far the mightiest animal in the jungle!"
On a roll now, the lion swaggers up to an elephant and roars, "Who is the mightiest of all jungle animals?"
Fast as lightning, the elephant snatches up the lion with his trunk, slams him against a tree half a dozen times, making the lion feeling like he’d been run over by a safari wagon. The elephant then stomped on the lion until he looked like a corn tortilla and then ambled away.
The lion let out a moan of pain, lifted his head weakly, and groaned after the elephant, "Geez, just because you don't know the answer, you don't have to get so angry!"
