Why can’t a rhino frolic like a lamb? The rhino tried very hard to frolic like a lamb, but he was not successful. Every time he tried to frolic, he went backwards. The lamb frolicked forwards. And the rhino frolicked backwards. Eventually, the lamb returned to his friend the rhino and showed him how to frolic forwards. He jumped and scampered with great brio while the rhino carefully studied his every movement and nuance. Renewed and confident, the rhino began to frolic with great enthusiasm and vigor, and frolicked, as a rhino steady and true, backwards.
