First off, this is not the story of the lion who thought he was a Goat. The Goat in this story gave the lion the run of its life.
One day in the jungle, a Goat was running around happily when he saw an Antelope smoking marijuana, he called the Antelope and said to him, “why are you doing this to yourself? Join me to run around the jungle and you’ll be happier.”
The Antelope left the marijuana he was smoking and joined the Goat to run around the jungle.
After some time, they came across a Tiger taking heroin, the Goat called the Tiger and asked him why he was destroying your life with drugs? come run around the jungle with me and you’ll feel a lot happier.”
The Tiger gave it a thought and decided to join the Goat and Antelope to run around the jungle.
As they were running around the jungle, they came across a Lion taking cocaine, the Goat pleaded with the Lion to run around the jungle with them and stop punishing himself with deadly drugs.
Just run around the jungle with me and you’ll feel happier… Before the Goat could finish his statement, the lion left his drugs and started giving the Goat the beating of his life.
“Hey,” said the Tiger to the Lion, “Mr. Goat is only trying to help us to stop taking drugs, why are you giving him this kind of brutal beating?” The Lion replied by saying, “Don’t mind this useless Goat! That’s how he makes me run around the jungle with him anytime he’s high!”
