Two young hedgehogs were learning survival tactics from their father.
“Today, I want to tell you about one of our biggest dangers. That road out there,” instructed dad. “There will be times that you need to cross it and if you’re lucky, a car won’t come along. But if it does, just make sure that you stop in the middle of the road so it will go over you without touching. Just watch me and you’ll see what I mean.”
Dad went out into the middle of the road and waited patiently for a car.
“It’s coming,” he shouted, “now you’ll see what…”
He never finished speaking. The two young sons heard a sickly crunch
as he was flattened on the road.
“I meant to ask him what we should do if a 3-wheeler came along,” said one to the other.
