Questions from Amanda and Aesop

Filed under: Uncategorized — unwriter1 @ 12:38 pm

1. Humans are funny creatures. Kitties and Eagles have fur and feathers to keep us warm. Why don’t humans?2. Some humans do want fur, but instead of growing your own, you go out and kill my animal friends. Why?

3. Humans are never satisfied. You make paths, you call them roads, through our homes, then you get angry when we cross these paths to go from one part of our home to another. Why can’t you find a way to make these paths without disrupting our home?

4. Humans do not play fair. You have big machines to travel these paths. Why don’t you watch out for us crossing, instead of trying to hit us?

5. With a birds-eye view, Aesop asks: humans are very wasteful. You don’t eat all the food you have, then you throw the leftovers away. Why don’t you throw them someplace accessible to animals and birds? We need to eat also.

6. Whew! I think that’s all the heavy questions. What do humans see in that black water (no translation available, but I think they are talking about coffee), you drink? King Squirrel tried it once. By the time the effect wore off, he was three forests away and very sore from bouncing off so many trees.

7. Humans are strange. They constantly watch weird picture boxes then complain about being out of shape. Why?

8. To make matters worse, why does your offspring suffer through all that noise while trying to convince everyone, (themselves too I think), that this noise is really music?

9. Amanda saw something really strange the other day. It was very cold, in fact it was double-fur cold. A female human was trotting along, wearing almost nothing. She had wires running out of her ears. Was that some kind of a heating device?

10. There is one question that has bothered Amanda for a long time. Why don’t humans have tails?

Note from Koko:
“I’m sorry I didn’t get these questions translated right away. I had a hard time with finding human words for some of the questions. I also was concerned that some of those first few questions were dangerous to ask. But Aesop and Amanda pleaded with me to include them.”

  1. Cute, Ron. I adored the part about drinking the “black” stuff and being three forests away. Adorable!
