…but the dog quickly grabbed him by his furry tail and asked,
“Hold on a sec pal, why do you keep jumping over me when there's plenty of space around?”
“Do I look like a fence?”
“I don't even try to catch you because I'm lazy. But this time I had to stop you, not because I'm angry but I'm just curious...”
“Seriously, why do you keep jumping over me, man?”
The fox looked scared at first, then realizing that the dog won't do anything it regained some of its courage to speak.
“I... I can't help, that's my habit...”
“I've done that countless times and I will do that again and again because I've done that again and again.”
“Now can you please let go of my tail? I have to come back again to jump over you.”
The lazy dog look disgusted now.
“Look pal, I didn't stop you for countless times, but today I did. And I won't mind chasing you if you try to jump over me once more.”
“I have nothing personal about foxes but I hate the ones that jump over lazy and sleepy dogs.”
The fox look scared now and tried to explain...
“But I have nothing to do with it. It's the humans who made me jump over you for the sake of their alphabets. I hate this job. Jumping over a dog who does sleeps all day long.”
The dog let go of the tail of the fox and shook hands with him.
“Pal, you see a pub over there? I bet you won't mind having something to drink...”
So the quick brown fox and the lazy dog went to this pub again and again. They became friends, had a lot of fun, got drunk, danced together, jumped over each other and did everything silly.
Moral of the story: Stop looking for morals everywhere. Live your life!
