Long time ago, there were three mice living in a deserted house in a small town. Their biggest dream was to find much food to eat without worrying about dying of hunger.
One day, an oil businessman came to the town to sell oil. Because the businessman had no place to live in, he stayed in the deserted house for one night. Then in the late night, the good smell of the oil is full of the house and the three mice sniffed it. “Here’s oil! I won’t be hungry anymore,” every one of them thought happily. But the oil was on the bottom of a big bottle, and they couldn’t get it from the rim. After talking about it, the three mice thought of a smart way. Biting the former’s tail, they could line up and hang down to the oil. After the first mouse was full, he had to climb up to be the last one. In this way, all of the three mice could drink the oil by turns. In the beginning, things went well as they thought. But when the first mouse drank the oil, he changed his mind. The oil tasted so delicious and he decided to drink it up. The second mouse thought it was a stupid thing not to be the first one to drink the oil, so he planned to open his mouth and tried to get as much oil as possible. Worrying his two friends would drink up all the oil, the third mouse opened his mouth, too. Just at the moment, the three mice dropped into the bottle at the same time. Although they all drank the oil successfully, they could never get out of the bottle by themselves.
