A Precipitous Parable

‘Don’t be ridiculous,’ said the Elephant rather unwisely, though it certainly had not forgotten anything. ‘I get far more wet than you, for the rain hits me first and I am soaked while you are still fur-dry.’ ‘What toddle-plop,’ the Mouse exhaled, for it really was toddle-plop. ‘I, being the smaller, must get far wetter than you, as a small amount of rain soaks me while you are still in parts quite skin-dusted.’ Though the Mouse didn’t know what skin-dusted was meant to mean, it sounded like a thing. The two went on in this manner, both utterly soaked and equally wet.

So as the wise man says; 'The elephant and mouse get equally wet in the rain.'
