~ 179. The Two Travelers and the Ax ~
Two men were traveling together.
Along the way, they saw an ax lying beside the road.
One of them grabbed the ax and shouted, "Look what I found!"
"No," said his companion, "look what WE found."
But the man who grabbed the ax disagreed. "It's mine," he said, "and I'm going to keep it!"
A little while later they realized people were chasing them and shouting angrily. It was the woodcutters, and they wanted their ax back.
"Uh-oh," said the man with the ax. "We're in trouble!"
"No," said his companion, "YOU are in trouble. It's your ax, not mine."
