The Monkey and the Camel

Translation:

At a meeting of the beasts an ape got up and danced. He danced so very well that he was applauded to the skies. This moved the spleen of the camel who came out into the ring to show that he too could dance. But the camel danced like a camel; and the beasts in their rage drove him out of the ring with sticks and stones.

And the moral is that you must not stretch your arm farther than your sleeve will reach.
