When Elephant Brewed Beer

Elephant brewed beer and invited all animals with horns or tusks to come drink with him.
Rabbit glued some horns on his head and went to Elephant's party.
"I'm surprised to see you here," said Elephant, "but those are indeed beautiful horns. Have a drink!"
"Thanks!" said Rabbit. "I only reveal them on special occasions."
Then Hornbill arrived. "You can't drink here," said Rabbit angrily. "You don't have horns!"
"What gets glued comes unglued," shouted Hornbill, "sooner or later!" Then he pulled off Rabbit's horns and ran.
Rabbit had to run too, but he took his beer mug with him.
