One morning a blind bunny was hopping down the bunny trail and tripped over a large snake and fell, kerplop right on his twitchy little nose.
“Oh please excuse me,” said the bunny. I didn’t mean to trip over you, but I’m blind and can’t see.”
“That’s perfectly all right,” replied the snake. “To be sure, it was my fault. I didn’t mean to trip you, but I’m blind too, and I didn’t see you coming. By the way what kind of animal are you?”
“Well, I don’t really know,” said the bunny. “I’m blind, and I’ve never seen myself. Maybe you could examine me and find out?”
So the snake felt the bunny all over, and he said, “Well, you’re soft, and cuddly, and you have long silky ears, and a little fluffy tail and a dear twitch little nose. You must be a bunny rabbit.”
The bunny exclaimed, “I can’t thank you enough! But, by the way, what kind of animal are you?”
The snake replied that he didn’t know either, and the bunny agreed to examine him, and when the bunny was finished the snake asked, “Well, what kind of animal am I?”
The bunny said, “Oh I know, you’re cold, you’re slippery, and you haven’t any balls… you must be a politician!”
