The Language of Animals

A man said to Moses, “Teach me the language of animals!”

“You’ll regret it,” Moses warned him, but the man insisted.

So Moses taught him.

The man then understood what the animals said.

“Cock-a-doodle-doo! Horse will die today!” shouted the rooster.

So the man sold his horse.

The next morning: “Cock-a-doodle-doo! Slave will die today.”

So the man sold his slave.

The next morning, the man was shocked to hear: “Cock- a-doodle-doo! Master will die today.”

The man ran to Moses for help. “Save me from this doom!”

“Go sell yourself if you can,” said Moses. “There’s nothing I can do.”
