(Day 3 of a week of retelling traditional folktales.)
What a beautiful dog! But did it have bad manners or what? It walked straight into a butcher’s shop, tail wagging, and stole a leg of lamb.
The butcher asked a lawyer, “Can I sue a dog owner?”
“I don’t see why not,” said the lawyer.
“Well,” said the butcher, “it’s your dog. You owe me twenty-four dollars and eleven cents.”
“My consultation fee is eight hundred,” said the lawyer. “You owe me the difference.”
