An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town.
The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked beside him.
As they went along, they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding.
The man and the boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions.
Later, they passed some people who remarked: “What a shame! He makes that little boy walk.”
They then decided they would both walk.
