One morning the lion is feeling especially ferocious. He saunters over to a monkey swinging in a tree and roars, “Who’s the king of this jungle?” The monkey scampers down from the tree, bows to the lion and stammered, “Wh..wh…why you are Mr. Lion.”
A few minutes later, the lion comes across a warthog. He stops in front of the animal and asks, “Who’s the baddest dude in this jungle?”
The warthog hid his face in the dirt and whispered, “You’re the baddest, King Lion.”
This continues all morning long with animal after animal bowing and scraping to the lion. Finally the lion comes across an 80-year-old bull elephant. He bellows at the elephant, “Who’s the king of this jungle? Who owns this place?”
With that the elephant wrapped his trunk around the lion’s belly. He raised the lion 12 feet in the air and slammed his head against the ground. After that he slammed the lion into a tree on the right and then into another tree on the left. Finally, the elephant swung his trunk and threw the lion 35 feet away where the lion landed in a thorn bush.
As the elephant lumbered down the trail the lion shook his paw and shouted, “Just because you don’t know the answer, you don’t have to get an attitude!”
