The Lion and His Three Councilors

The lion called the sheep to him to ask her if his breath smelled. She said yes, and he bit off her head for being a fool. He called the wolf and asked him as well. The wolf said no, and the lion tore him to pieces for being a flatterer. Finally, he called the fox and asked him the same question. However, the fox apologized profusely and told the lion that he had somehow caught a cold and could not smell.
