Another look at the fairy tale "Tortoise and the Ducks". It means something else if you just read it again.

Episode 3

Episode 2: The Wolf and the Crane

Once upon a time, somewhere in Australia, there was a tortoise who envied the ducks. He was so pissed as to why he carry his house on his back not allowing him to move fast to go out and see the world.

One day he prayed and wished he could fly to travel the world and enjoy life. The next morning, his wish came true when a group of ducks told him they could carry him around the world.

“How the hell will we do that?” he asked.

“Just hold on the stick with your mouth and we will show you around.” the ducks answered.

So the ducks carried the stick using their beak while the tortoise bit on it.

“We are now reaching 7,000 feet” said the lead duck.

Just after the announcement was made, a huge thunderous sound was heard from the skies of Australia. This event made the front page on the next day’s papers.

“Plane Crash Landed, Birds Blamed!”.

Morale of the story: “Again, shit happens”.
