Quote of the week






He took that skin, and he shook that skin, and he scrubbed that skin, and he rubbed that skin just as full of old, dry, stale, tickly cake-crumbs and some burned currants as ever it could possibly hold. Then he climbed to the top of his palm-tree and waited for the Rhinoceros to come out of the water and put it on. And the Rhinoceros did. He buttoned it up with the three buttons, and it tickled like cake crumbs in bed. Then he wanted to scratch, but that made it worse ... and from that day to this every rhinoceros has great folds in his skin and a very bad temper, all on account of the cake-crumbs inside. This is the conclusion of "How the Rhino got his Skin" a Just So Story about the downfall of greed and bad manners.
