When Lion opened his eyes, he found himself in a hospital bed with his head wrapped in a bandage. All the animals were standing over him, watching.
Lion smiled and said, “Give me my teeth.” He put his teeth back in and looked around, but he couldn’t see his wife. “Where is my wife?” he asked.
His son replied, “Mother is searching for her shoe, the one she threw at your head during the speech.” Cow was standing in the corner and commented, “That shoe made Lion Junior into a weightlifter as well. It was he who lifted you and brought you here.”
