Qreed's a dreadful thing to see.
As everybody will agree.
At first Little Joe Otter, sitting on
the bank of the Smiling Pool, laughed
himself r almost; sick as . he watched
Grandfather Fro trying lo swallow
fish almost as big as himself when his
white and yellow waistcoat was already
stuffed so full of foolish green flies that
there wasn't, room' for anything mor.
Such greed would have been disgusting
ir it hadn't been so very, very funny.
At least it was Tunny at rs,t.
Tou see. the fish had gone . down
Grandfather Frog's big throat head flrat
until It reached his stomach, but then it
couldn't . go a bit farther. , because ' his
stomach was already full. Right: then
the fish ha Stuck, the tail stilt sticking
out or .Grandfather , Frog's big mouth
Grandfather Frog hitched this way and
nitcned mat way on his big green lily
pad trying his best to swallow. Twice
he tumbled, off with a splash Into , the
Smiling Pool. Each time he scrambled
back again and rolled hla-great, goggly
eyes tn silent appeal to Little Joe Otter
to come to his aid, :'.K'." 'v' , h ;
But Little Joe was laughing so that he
had to bold his aides, and be didn't un
derstand that Grandfather Frog really
was in trouble. Billy Mink and Jerry
Munkrat came along and as soon aa they
saw Grandfather Frog they began to
laugh. They Just Wbghed and. laughed
and laughed until the tears came. They
rolled over and over on the bank and
kicked ; their-: heels from ..sheer; enjoy-'
ment : It was the funniest thing they
had seep for a long jJme.
Dld you ever see such greed V gasped
Billy mK J i& ft. r.:-JM.P
Why don't yod put It out and start
over again r shouted Little Joe Otter..
Now this is Just what Grandfatber
Frog was trying to do. "At least he was
trying to pull the fish out. He hadn't
the lesse desire in the world to try
swallowing it again. In fact, . he felt
Just then as if ha never,, -never wanted
to see another fish so long aa he lived.
But Grandfather' Frog's ; hands are not
made for grasping slippery things, and
the tall of a fish Is very slippery, in
deed. He tried first with one hand, then
with the. other, and, at last with both.
It was of no use at all. He Just couldn't
budge that flatus. Her couldn't cough it
up becauaa it liad gone too far down for
that The more he clawed at that wav
ing tall with his hands, the funnier he
looked and the harder Little Joe Otter
and Billy Mink and : -; Jerry Muskrat
laughed. They made such a noise that
