An Ass climbed up to the roof of a building, and frisking about there,
broke in the tiling. The owner went up after him and quickly drove
him down, beating him severely with a thick wooden cudgel. The Ass
said, "Why, I saw the Monkey do this very thing yesterday, and you
all laughed heartily, as if it afforded you very great amusement."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
