A wealthy Urhobo man decided to go on a safari in one of the games reserves.
He took his faithful pet Waffi dog along for company. One day the dog starts chasing butterflies and before long he discovers that he is
lost. So, wandering about he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having lunch. The dog thinks,
"Boy, dis na wahala."
Then he noticed some bones on the ground close by, and immediately
settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dog exclaims loudly,
"Man, that leopard sweet o, I wonder where I fit get more around here?"
Hearing this the leopard halts his attack in mid stride, as a look of terror comes over him, and slinks away into the trees.
"Chei", says the leopard. "That was close. That dog nearly chop me."
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from
a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and
trade it for protection from the leopard. So, off he goes. But the dog
saw him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figured that
something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.
The cat is furious at being made a fool of and says,
"Here monkey, climb my back make you see wetin I go do that wayo dog."
Now the dog sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back, and thinks,
" Wetin man go do now?"
But instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers
pretending he hasn't seen them yet. And just when they get close enough to hear, the dog says,
"Wey this monkey sef. You no fit ever trust am, 30 mins don pass since I send am make him go bring another leopard and he still never come back!!"
