Even dim-wits have a few tricks. Denzil the donkey was in the meadow when a wolf leapt from the woods. "I'm too young and handsome to die." thought Denzil. As the wolf was about to jump he held up a hoof . "Before you eat me, Mr. Wolf," he said, "you should pull this thorn out of my foot, or you'll have a bad tummy-ache." "Good point," growled the wolf and bent down to look. Denzil kicked him on the nose as hard as he could, and the wolf ran off howling. "Well done, Denzil," cried the other donkeys when he got home. "We never thought you could be so smart."
