The Parrot and The Lion

One day Parrot was flying back to his nest when he overheard Lion bragging about himself, "I am the best animal in the world, I can beat any animal at anything!" Parrot flew down and said, "I bet I can beat you in a race!" "Sure you can, and pigs fly to the moon and back!" Lion teased and then he hooted with laughter. " Lets race tomorrow in the morning at exactly 8:00."

"Okay, and if I win I get to eat you for dinner!"

"Its a deal!" So the next morning the Lion and the Parrot climbed to the tallest tree to race. Lion thought he would win, but Parrot knew that Lion could not fly. At 8:00 Pigeon said "3,2,1 GO!" But once Lion jumped off the tree he was plummeting towards the ground, as Lion fell Parrot shouted after him, "know your limits, or your just marching towards your death"
