218. THE DONKEY AND THE OX
Perry 292 (Babrius
A man had just one ox so he yoked the ox together with a donkey and started
to plow. It was a humiliating arrangement, but unavoidable. When the work
was finished and the man was about to unyoke them, the donkey asked the
ox, 'Who do you think is going to carry the old man's tools on his back?'
The ox said to the donkey, 'The same one who always carries them!'
