There’s a rumour going around in the forest. They say that the Bear has a deathlist. All t.he animals are really scared and restless
“Well, there’s only one way to find out!” said the Fox. “I’ll go and ask him!”
So Fox walks up to Bear and says:
“Umm, Bear, you know, there’s been a lot of talk recently about you having a deathlist.. there isn’t such a thing as your deathlist, right?”
Bear: “Oh, sure there is!”
Fox, “Oh, in that case, could you tell me if I’m on it?”
Bear: “Yup, you’re on it. Sorry buddy.”
Sure enough, the fox is found dead the day after.
The rest of the animals are now getting really scared, with Fox being dead.
So Beaver says to the others “I can’t stand the wait, I have to go to Bear and ask him about the deathlist!”
Beaver finds Bear and says to him: “Bear, I know you have a deathlist, please, tell me if I’m on it!”
Bear: “Oh Beaver, yes of course you’re on it!”
Well, needless to say, the next day the other animals find Beaver’s dead body very close to where they found Fox’s.
No everyone is getting restless, nobody can sleep anymore, everybody is constantly no edge.
So the Hare works up enough courage to talk to Bear.
“Bear, I know you have this deathlist, I know you killed Fox and Beaver. Now tell me, I have to know, am I on it?”
Bear “Yes Hare, you’re on my list as well.”
Hare: “Umm, could you just take me off your list then?”
Bear: “Oh sure, no problem!” takes a pen and crosses Hare out.
🙂 Sometimes all you have to do is ask 🙂
