Covering the ears to steal the bell
Once upon a time there was a stupid man. His neighbor bought a nice bell. The stupid man liked it very much and wanted to steal it. One silent night, he went to his neighbor’s house. He tried to get the bell off. But the bell rang the moment he touched it. He was afraid that someone would hear it. So he covered his ears and got the bell down. When he was complacent about his cleverness, a lot of people came to the gate and caught him.
