One day a squirrel found an acorn on the forest floor. It was strange because it appeared to have a tail.
The squirrel took it to his rabbit friend. “That’s not a tail, it’s a horn. You’ve found a deer egg.”
She didn’t completely believe the rabbit. She took it to her possum friend. “I’m almost sure that’s a snake hatching out. Kill it now.”
Next she took it to a raccoon, who washed it. “It’s a bomb. That’s clearly a fuse.”
Alarmed, the squirrel cried, “What should I do?”
“Take it somewhere and bury it before somebody gets hurt.”
