   The Ass in the Lion's skin

There was an Ass who once found a Lion's skin which the hunters had left out in the sun to dry. He put it on and went towards his native village.

All were frightened at his appearance, both men and animals, and he was a proud Ass that day.

 In his pleasure he lifted up his voice and brayed, but then every one knew him, and his owner came up and gave him a nice stick on his back for the fright he had created.

 And shortly afterwards a Fox came up to him and said: "Ah, I knew you by your voice."

Moral: Fine clothes may disguise, but silly words will disclose a fool.
