A vampire bat came flapping in from the night covered in fresh blood, and parked himself on the ceiling of the cave to get some sleep. Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood and started hassling him about where he got it. He told them to leave him alone and let him get some sleep.

Down through a valley they went, across a river and into a forest of trees. Finally he slowed and all the other bats excitedly milled around him.
“Now, do you see that tree over there?” he asked. “YES, YES, YES!” all the other bats screamed in a frenzy.
“Good,” shouted the bat, “because I didn’t!”
