Hares are rather noisy animals that love to hear themselves talking. One day a hare was giving a long speech, waving his paws around, to a lot of other animals. They were getting rather bored when two lions strolled up. They listened quietly while the hare told the animals they should all have fair shares of everything. "what do you think, Mr. Lion?" the hare asked one of them at last. "Yes a good speech," said the lion with a yawn. "But if you want anyone to take you seriously, you need to have big teeth and sharp claws."
