The Ass divided the proceeds into three equal parts and asked his friends to choose their portions. The Lion, in great indignation, tore the Ass to pieces. he then asked the Fox to divide the booty. the Fox gathered almost everything into one pile, leaving only a tiny bit for himself. “Oh, friend,” said the Lion, “who taught you to make so equitable a division?”
