In comes four legs, picks up one leg, Up gets two legs picks up three legs,pegs three legs at four legs takes back one leg, and runs away four legs.(Ans, A boy in a butcher's shop picked up a leg of mutton.The butcher pegged a three legged stool at the dog. He drops the leg of mutton and runs away.)
Why is the middle of a tree like a dog's tail? (Because it is the farthest from the bark.)
What walks with its head down? (A nail in your boot.)
