In a wild jungle world that is yet to
be discovered by human civilization, there are over 200 animal
kingdoms, among which three big ones are called The United
Eagles, The Bear Federation and The Rabbit Republic. One
day, the rabbit leader was invited to visit eagle's nest
where he watched a group of little birds hitting the nuts
and dinned with the eagle head. When a group of little rabbits
heard the eagles going nuts, they got excited and came up
with their own hole digging exercise, and soon unearthed
some pieces of history way back to Three Kingdoms' era about
1,800 years ago. One such piece was compiled by a rabbit
nicknamed 宋鲁郑的粉丝 and posted on tianya.cn. Here we present
it in both eagle and original rabbit languages:
One day the rabbit was invited to visit bird's nest. When
the guest arrived amid
the ferocious wind from the west, the host led him
to an early spring garden dotted with cages where captured
animals were held. The two sat in a pavilion to share a business
lunch which included dishes of barbecued frogs, roasted
swans and deep fried worms, as well as the wine made of snake
"You know, I have always emphasized that I welcome
carrots' peaceful growth, that I believe that well cultivated
carrot or cabbage or even bok choy farms can help to bring
stability and prosperity to the jungle," said the eagle,
while munched on a mouthful of roasted swan flesh. "However,
it also means that on critical issues like vegetable's rights,
I will continue to emphasize what I believe is the importance
of recognising the aspirations and rights of all plants."
As they dinned, the weather gradually changed, with a mass
of cloud that looked like a dragon hung in the sky.
"By the way, this is a Black
Dragon year, how much do you know about dragons?" asked
the eagle of the guest.
"Not in particular."
"The dragon among divine
creatures can compare with the hero among animals. You, rabbit, have traveled
all holes and fields. You must know who are the heroes in the jungle, and I
wish you would say who they are."
"Bear of the North Pole, with his vast territory, strong arms, abundant
mushrooms: Is he one?" replied the rabbit, without hesitation.
His host shook his head, "The bear has a lot of courage
but little wisdom. He was once tricked by me to give up his
competitive interprise to take a high-risk business venture
with me, as the result he went bankrupt, and now make a living
by selling cooking oil. How can you call such a creature

bully, but a coward. He is fond of grandiose schemes, but is devoid of
decision. While ruling a land of peanut size, he dreams great things but grudges
the necessary sacrifice. He is not one."
"There is one with a large family, who is renowned as a lover of bullish
democracy and whose fame has spread on all sides in the jungle. I mean
the Elephant by River G, surely he is a hero."
"He is a mere semblance, a beast of vain reputation. No, not he."
the United Islands, or Pan
the Just Round, the rich households in their own regions. Are they not
The eagle laughed out loud. "They are just my servants,
who are not worth mentioning."
"With these exceptions I really know none."
"Let me tell you, heroes are like dragons who can assume any size, can
rise in glory or hide from sight. Bulky, it generates clouds and evolves mist;
attenuated, it can scarcely hide a mustard stalk or conceal a shadow; mounting,
it can soar to the empyrean; subsiding, it lurks in the uttermost depths of
the ocean. Now we are in the early spring season, and the dragon chooses this
moment for its transformations like an animal realizing his own desires and
overrunning the jungle."
"Who is such a creature?" asked the rabbit.
The eagle pointed his claw first at his guest and then at
himself, saying, "The only heroes in the jungle are
you and I. We are the Great 2, simple called G2."
The rabbit gasped, and the spoon and chopsticks rattled to
the floor. Now just at that moment the storm burst with a
tremendous peal of thunder and rush of rain. The rabbit stooped
down to recover the fallen articles, saying, "What a
shock! And it was quite close."
The eagle was suspicious. "Don't tell me you are afraid
The rabbit looked into the sky and was almost tearful. "Who
