WHO IS KING?

The lion was proud of his mastery of the animal kingdom.

One day he decided to make sure all the other animals knew he was the king of the jungle. He was so confident that he bypassed the smaller animals and went straight to the bear. "Who is. the king of the jungle?" the lion asked. The bear replied, "Why, you are, of course," The lion roared his approval.

Next he asked the tiger, "Who is the king of the jungle?" The tiger quickly responded, "Everyone knows that you are, mighty lion."

Next on the list was the elephant. The lion faced the elephant and addressed his question:  "Who is the king of the jungle?" The elephant immediately grabbed the lion with his trunk, whirled him around in the air five or Six times, and slammed him into a tree. Then he pounded him onto the ground several times, dunked him under the water,  in a nearby lake, and finally threw him on the shore. The lion - beaten, bruised, and battered — struggled to his feet. He looked at the elephant through sad eyes and said, "Look, just because you don't know the answer is no reason for you to get mean about it!" —Gerald Flury
