The Mule

A MULE, drowsy from lack of work and from too much corn, watched hours of television and said to himself: "Ah, this is the life."

On the next day, being driven a long journey, and feeling very wearied, he exclaimed in a disconsolate tone: "This is most certainly not the life."

The Mule (original fable)

A MULE, frolicsome from lack of work and from too much corn, galloped about in a very extravagant manner, and said to himself: "My father surely was a high-mettled racer, and I am his own child in speed and spirit." On the next day, being driven a long journey, and feeling very wearied, he exclaimed in a disconsolate tone: "I must have made a mistake; my father, after all, could have been only an ass."
