An ox was feeding near a pond in a meadow. He almost put his foot on a company of little frogs. This frightened them nearly to death. One of the little frogs hopped home to his mother.

“We were sitting near the pond in the meadow” he told her.
“When a great beast came along. He was big. He almost stepped on us”
The mother frog said, “How big was he? Was he as big as I am?”
The little frog replied, “Much Bigger”.
Then the old frog puffed herself out and asked, “Was the beast as big as this?”
“Very much larger” said the little frog.

The foolish old frog tried again to make her self as big as the ox. She tried so hard that this time she burst.
