...and silly as a goose. When the lion who lives in the forest notices that people refer to human behavior in terms of animal trait he calls all the animals together, advising them to change their habits. Men are at a loses for words when cats and dogs no longer fight, when lions stop roaring and mice become noisy. In fact, ""they begin to call each other names and to fight like--like-- Like villagers."" The animals resolve to behave naturally and the villagers Stop arguing. Too much ado about figures of Speech, but the nimble drawings figure nicely.
