My daughter’s next killer story. Please note that the entire story has been lifted…I mean, inspired by a Disney story called Lambert, The Sheepish Lion.
- One night a flock of sheep is sleeping on a farm. 🐏🐏🐏
- A stork, by mistake, delivers a Lion baby to a Sheep. 🐈🐏
- The rest of the sheep make fun of him, 🐈
- and he grows as rather a sheepish lion, who is “not ferocious like a sheep but has rather a sheepish grin”. 🦁
- One night, a wolf 🐺 tries to pull away his mother 🐏, the sheep, by the tail to eat her.
- She cries for help. 🐏
- It wakes the Lion’s inner ferocious Sheep. 🦁
- He 🦁 runs to the wolf 🐺, gives him a head butt like a true sheep, throwing him down a cliff. 🐏
- He becomes a beloved Hero.
It is a lovely video about finding your true identity. You can watch it on You Tube via this link.
So, I had asked my daughter to tell me a story (to escape a similar request from her). I told her I wanted a story of a Hippo. She offered the Hare and Tortoise again and later, Lambert the Sheepish Lion. But I told her, I wanted a Hippo story. So, she simply replaced ‘Sheep’ and ‘Lion’ with ‘Hippo’. Here is her story.
- One night a flock of Hippos was sleeping on a farm. 🐏🐏🐏
- A stork delivers a Hippo to the Hippo mom. 🐈🐏 (Of course, the stork won’t always be making wrong deliveries. He isn’t your local postman.)
- The rest of the hippos make fun of him. (Not sure why…) 🐈
- He grows as rather a…Hippo. 🦁 (What else would you expect?)
- One night, a wolf 🐺 tries to pull away his mother, the Hippo, by the tail to eat her. (At this point, I remind her that hippos are rather heavy to be pulled by the tail. She explains that it was rather a strong wolf.)
- She cries for help. 🐏 (I ask her why the Hippo mom did not bite the wolf with her large teeth, but she ignores the question and ploughs on.)
- It wakes his inner Hippo. (Of course!) 🦁
- He🦁 runs to the wolf🐺, gives him a headbutt, like a true hippo throwing him down a cliff. He becomes a beloved Hero. (Tadaaaaaaaaa)
