One day a farmer’s donkey fall down into a well. As the man thinks about what to do, the animal brayed for hours.
Finally the farmer decides the animal is old, and the well needs to be covered up anyway, and it isn’t worth the effort to retrieve the donkey.
The farmer asks all his neighbors to help. Each one grabs a shovel and begin to shovel dirt into the well. When the donkey realizes what happened, he starts screaming worse. Then he quiets down. The peasants continue to shovel dirt on him.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer looks down the well. He is astonished at what he saw. The donkey is doing something amazing with the dirt falling on his back. He is shaking it down to prepare the steps to go up.
After a while, to everyone’s amazement, the donkey steps up and out of the well and trots off!
