Goat



The Goat was brimming with happiness. When confronted by his fellow jungle mates, he replied proudly, "Guys, I know you wouldn't believe it, but yes it's true. You can even visit the city and check it out. I am the new fashion icon."

"What does that mean?" asked an old tortoise.

"Ah, you are so ignorant. Haven't you heard of the goatee? Men are emulating me."

The wise tortoise replied, "Son, people who appear to like you now, could stab you later. It's a selfish world. Today you may be their goatee, but tomorrow you might be their mutton."
