THE BAT, THE BOOBY AND THE BRAMBLE BUSH
The bat, the booby and the bramble bush decided to do a business together. The bat brought some gold on credit, the booby brought some copper and the bramble bush brought some clothing. They hired a ship and set sail for far off land. In the mid of the voyage, a storm came and broke the ship into pieces. They lost all their investment and hence could not face their creditors. Ever since that time, the bat never flies during the day and comes out during night only; to hide from its creditors. The booby spends his time in the sea, as if looking for the copper. The bramble bush grabs hold of everyone’s cloak, in the search of the missing clothes.
