Translation


A cow was grazing in a field of grass.
This field was near a pond which was full of frogs.
When the frogs saw him some of them exclaimed, "This fellow is extremely big."
Just as they said this, one of the frogs remarked, "I can blow myself up as big as this cow."
No sooner had he said it, than he began to blow himself up, and he went on blowing until he burst.
