A lion was lying asleep at the mouth of his den when a mouse ran over his back and tickled him so that he woke up with a start and began looking about everywhere to see what it was that had disturbed him.

A fox who was looking on, thought he would have a joke at the expense of the lion; so he said, “Well, this is the first time I’ve seen a lion afraid of a mouse.”

afraid of a mouse?” said the lion testily: “not I! It’s his bad manners I can’t stand.”

Small liberties can be large offences.
