One day, a group of donkeys witnessed something very strange.
What the donkeys witnessed was however not the same thing that the pigs witnessed, although the pigs were only on the other side of the farmyard and were looking in the exact same direction that the donkeys were looking in.
The donkeys later described what they saw as a mighty revolution.
The pigs went on to describe what they saw as nothing short of apocalyptic.
As the pigs and the donkeys stood in awe at what they were witnessing, a small cordless telephone hobbled across the farmyard.
The small cordless telephone managed to break into the hens' shed and steal some of their eggs. How it did this is still a mystery to the hens, who had surveillance cameras located on each wall, installed after one of the ducks from the pond sneaked in one night and painted mysterious symbols on several of their eggs.
The next day, after the hens' eggs had been taken, and after the donkeys and the pigs had witnessed the sight, an igloo suddenly materialised in the middle of the farmyard. Only one animal in the farm dared go anywhere near it, and this animal was a penguin who told everyone that she'd apparently been on the farm for years, though none of the other animals could for the lives of them remember ever having seen her before.
The penguin approached the igloo, entered it, and then, much to the surprise of the animals, the igloo melted, violently, leaving a large damp patch on the other wise dry farmyard soil, and the penguin was nowhere to be seen. A few seconds after the igloo had melted, none of the farm animals could remember any such penguin, and the armadillos decided to put a show on at the local theatre to celebrate the large damp patch on the farmyard soil, which was gradually spreading.
At the theatre that night, everyone had a whale of a time, and interestingly, when the animals returned to the farm, they noticed that in their absence the damp patch had turned into a sea, and in the sea there were a group of whales, who were preparing a speech.
The animals gathered to hear the speech, which was deep and thought-provoking, and after it had finished, one of the pigs, who had drunk a little too much at the theatre, decided that he wanted to make a speech that was deep and thought-provoking too, and swaggered up to the podium and began.
The whales, politely, took to the side and watched the pig make his speech, though they felt that what they had said had not been taken seriously by the farm animals. After the pig had finished his speech, which was only deep and thought-provoking to a small clump of moss on the ground, the whales decided to try a different speech, which was even more deep and thought-provoking than their first, and as they finished, they were appalled to notice that the sea was in fact only a damp patch of melted igloo on the farmyard soil, and they quickly left the scene before any of the other animals decided they wanted to make a speech too.
By the next morning, the damp patch had dried up, and there was a commotion in the cow shed.
It turned out that during the night, someone had been in the shed and had built a newspaper stand, and there was a queue of early morning business workers waiting patiently for copies. A large man wearing a mexican sombrero hat was running the stand, and tragically running out of papers. The cows didn't like this one bit, and called the pigs in to help.
The pigs arrived, but when they saw what was printed on the newspapers, they quickly turned and ran, remembering what they had witnessed two nights before.
The cows then called the donkeys, and the donkeys came, but as soon as they saw what was printed on the newspapers, they each got out their mobile phones and started happy-slapping the poor cows, remembering what they had witnessed two nights before.
In the nick of time, one of the llamas came in to the barn, and she quickly calmed everything down over a nice cup of herb tea. But at that moment, the man running the news stand ran out of papers and began selling instead the herb tea that llama was making. The early morning business workers didn't seem to mind.
Events that happened afterwards were unclear, considering only two groups of animals outside were there to witness it.
The donkeys stood outside, and witnessed what they later described as a mighty revolution.
The pigs stood outside too, and witnessed what they later described as nothing short of apocalyptic.
In the hen shed, however, the hens had just caught a small cordless telephone red-handed.
Later, the hens told everyone that the small cordless telephone had broken in and tried to steal some of their eggs. However, they said smugly, thanks to their surveillance cameras, they had caught it in the act, and they wanted to take the telephone to court.
The other animals shook their heads in disbelief, as they did often. The hens had always been insane.
The llama politely told the hens to go back into the barn and keep out of trouble.
The next day, an igloo suddenly materialised in the middle of the farmyard, but it melted before any of the animals noticed it.
