+23 -76
Two men were traveling together when a bear suddenly met them on the path. One of them climbed up a tree and hid in the branches. The other fell flat on the ground, and when the bear came and poked at him with his snout and smelled him all over, the man held his breath and pretended to be dead. The bear left him alone, for it is said that bears will not touch a dead body.
When the bear was gone, the other traveler descended from the tree and jokingly asked his friend what the bear had whispered in his ear.
"He gave me this advice," his companion replied. "Never travel with a friend who leaves you when danger comes."
