A vampire bat came flapping in from the night covered in fresh blood and parked
himself on the cave’s roof to get some sleep. Soon all the other bats smelled the
blood and began hassling him about where he got it. He told them to shut up and let
him get some sleep, but they persisted until he finally gave in.
“OK, follow me.”
He flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats behind him. Down through a valley they
went, across a river and into a forest of trees. Finally he slowed down and all the other
bats excitedly milled around him.
“Do you see that tree over there?”
“YES, YES, YES!!” the bats all screamed in a frenzy.
“Well I didn’t!”
