The Elephant and the Bird

An elephant was in the forest taking a walk. Suddenly, he bumped into a tree. The elephant was so lost in thought and he wasn't looking where he was going. Right after he bumped into the tree, the elephant could hear laughter. "You are so big, you can't even fit through the trees!" a bird cried.

"Why should my size matter? Besides, there are advantages to being large and small", elephant replied.

"Really, what advantage do you have over me?" the bird asked with a burst of pride.

"This", said the elephant and stepped on the bird.
