The Donkey in the Lion's Skin

A donkey, having put on the Lion's skin, roamed about in the forest and amused himself by frightening all the animals he met in his wanderings. At last coming upon a Fox, he tried to frighten him also, but the Fox no sooner heard the sound of his voice than he exclaimed, "I might possibly have been frightened myself, if I had not heard your bray."

MORAL: Clothes may disguise a fool, but his words will not.

I love to go shopping. I love to freak out salespeople. They ask me if they can help me, and I'd say, "have you got anything I'd like?" Then they ask me what size I need, and I say, "Extra medium."
