It was Friday. Open mic night in the woods. Although the animals didn’t actually use microphones. And they had to perform before dark because only bats show up after dark. And they are lousy tippers.

The animals gathered in a circle, close enough to hear each other, and told jokes and stories. First up was Hoofy The Deer.
