The story about the frog, the chicken and the librarian

A chicken walks into the local town library, goes up to the librarian’s desk and says: “Bok!” So the librarian gives the chicken a book.

The chicken goes away, but comes back the next day, goes up to the librarian’s desk and says: “Bok! bok!” So the librarian gives the chicken two books, the chicken goes away, comes back the next day: “Bok, bok, bok!”. So the librarian provides the chicken with three more books.

And the next day, “Bok, bok, bok, bok!” and so on until the fifth day, when the chicken comes back in and says to the librarian” Bok, bok, bok, bok, bok!

The librarian hands over five books but then he decides to follow the chicken, at a surreptitious distance, out of the library.

The librarian follows as the chicken goes down the street, across the road and down a smaller street, then through an unbolted wooden door, down a passageway, into a garden, across the garden to a small lake, across a narrow bridge to an island in the middle, where the chicken puts the books down in front of a frog who says: “Reddit, reddit, reddit, reddit, reddit!!”
