A man's favourite donkey fell into a deep precipice. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. He couldn't pull it out no matter how hard he tried. Finally, as the animal was old, he decided to bury it alive.
He began pouring soil on the donkey from above. After some time, the man peered down into the well, and was astounded by what he saw. The donkey felt the load, shook it off, and stepped on it.
More soil was poured. It shook it off and stepped up. The more the soil was poured, the higher it rose.
Pretty soon, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the precipice and trotted off, to the shock and astonishment of the man.
By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures.
