Baron Munchausen, Bears' liver

I am Baron Munchausen

Everyone usually calls me "The excessive baron".

Today, as usual,

I will tell you a story of my adventure.

This time, I am talking about when I went to meet a Turkish nobleman for public use.

I will talk about when I went to meet a Turkish nobleman for public use.

To prove my friendship,

I brought the medicine which is made from the bear's living liver as a souvenir for the Turkish nobleman.

However, due to the mistake of the delivery man, the souvenir was lost.

“Hmm,

If I don’t have any souvenir, the negotiation will not go well.

But, it’s too hard to take the living liver of one bear without a gun.

Got it!” I thought.

Having come up with a good idea, I went to a farm where they said that bears often came,

I smeared a lot of honey on the shaft of the car used for farming and waited for the bears to appear.

As I thought, one bear came due to the smell of honey.

I thought it was the one that loved honey.

The bear began to lick from the end of the shaft, but after that, its mouth was bunged up,

And the shaft went from the throat of the bear

through its stomach and intestines to buttock.

“Nice!” I thought and ran to the bear.

Then I drove two nails on the top and bottom of the shaft

to prevent the bear from running away.

Finally, I got an alive bear.

And since then, more and more bears came for the smell of the honey

I used the same method to catch all of them,

and took living livers one by one when the bears were still alive.

They were souvenirs for the Turkish nobleman.

Because medicine made of bear's liver could treat all diseases,

the Turkish nobleman was so happy to hear that.

The lesson today is: "You can do anything with a tool as long as you know how to use it."

Because only by honey and shaft, if you do as my own method, you can catch bears easily.

See you next time with another story.
