FLYING TURTLE

A tiny turtle began to climb a tree very slowly. Three hours later, it reached the top, climbed on to an outside branch, jumped into the air waving its front legs and crashed to the ground.

Saved by its shell, the tiny turtle started to climb the tree again. Four hours later, it reached the top, climbed on to a branch, jumped into the air waving its front legs and crashed to the ground.

Undaunted, the tiny turtle tried again. Four hours later, it reached the top, climbed to a branch, jumped into the air waving its front legs and crashed to the ground.

Undaunted, the tiny turtle tried again. This time it took five hours to climb to the top of the tree. Once there, it stumbled on to an outside branch, jumped into the air waving its front legs and crashed to the ground. As the tiny turtle dusted itself down for yet another laborious ascent of the tree, two birds were watching from above.

The female bird turned to the male and said, ”Darling, don’t you think it’s time we told him he’s adopted?”
