A vampire bat came flapping in from the night, face all covered in fresh
blood and parked himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep.
Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood & began hassling him
about where he got it. He told them to piss off & let him get some
sleep, but they persisted until he finally gave in.
“OK, follow me”, he said & flew out of the cave with hundreds of excited
bats behind him.
Down through a valley they went, across a river & into a huge forest.
Finally he slowed down & all the other bats excitedly milled round him,
tongues hanging out for blood. “Do you see that large oak tree over
there?” he asked.
“YES, YES, YES!!!” the bats all screamed in a frenzy.
“Good for you!” said the bat, “Because I damn well didn’t!”
