THE FOX AND THE MONKEY

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
A fox and a monkey were walking together. They had a dispute: which one had nobler ancestors? They kept arguing for some time. Then they came to a cemetery. It was full of monuments. The monkey stopped and looked around and sighed. The fox asked, "Why do you sigh?" The monkey pointed to the tombs and said, "All these monuments were put up here in honour of my ancestors. They were all important men in their time." The fox didn't speak at first. He didn't know what to say. Then he recovered and said, "Oh! don't stop at any lie, sir; you're quite safe: I'm sure none of your ancestors will rise up and expose you."
Boasters show off most when nobody can understand that they are lying.

THE FOX AND THE MONKEY
A Fox and a Monkey were on the road together, and fell into a dispute as to which of the two was the better born. They kept it up for some time, till they came to a place where the road passed through a cemetery full of monuments, when the Monkey stopped and looked about him and gave a great sigh. "Why do you sigh?" said the Fox. The Monkey pointed to the tombs and replied, "All the monuments that you see here were put up in honour of my forefathers, who in their day were eminent men." The Fox was speechless for a moment, but quickly recovering he said, "Oh! don't stop at any lie, sir; you're quite safe: I'm sure none of your ancestors will rise up and expose you."
Boasters brag most when they cannot be detected.
