The MERCHANT and the LION

There lived a MERCHANT who made his money selling animal hides. He was quite prosperous because there were many animals to hunt. One day a LION moved into his territory and began eating the animals that the MERCHANT depended on for his business. The MERCHANT decided to go and make a deal with the LION. Said the MERCHANT:

If you do not damage the hides of the animals you hunt, I will let you in on my business.

But to this, the LION replied:

I shall not respond, for I lack the ability to comprehend language and verbalize thoughts.

The LION then proceeded to eat the MERCHANT.

IT IS NOT WISE TO TALK TO LIONS
