      An airplane carrying a symphony orchestra crashed in the desert.
      Miraculously only one man survived, almost unscathed. Carrying his
      violin out of habit, he started walking away from he crash site,
      looking for help...
      After a few hours, tired, he settled down to rest. A short while
      afterwards, a huge lion appeared and started approaching him
      menacingly, with obvious intentions.
      The fiddler was petrified from fear. There seemed no escape... than
      he remembered the tale of Orpheus pacifying wild beasts with his
      music, and decided to give it a try. He pulled the violin out, and
      started playing. Indeed, it worked! The lion stopped few feet from
      him, and lied down, apparently listening. The fiddler kept playing.
      Whenever he stopped, the lion would let out a menacing growl - so he
      kept on.
      After a while, another lion appeared. Then another, and another, and
      another.... They all seemed to enjoy his music, and lied down
      listening.
      After an hour or two, the fiddler lost his fear and started actually
      to enjoy the scene. There he was, surrounded by a herd of wild lions,
      which seemed lost in the contemplation of music, and (as long as he
      kept playing!) he was safe - for the time being...
      Then another, elder lion approached. The fiddler watched him
      approaching with no fear. But the lion kept coming closer, crossed
      the half-circle of lions surrounding him, and then with one leap
      pounded upon him and prepared to start devouring his dinner. "Hey!
      Why did you kill him! He was playing so nicely! You shouldn't have!"
      shouted all other lions in protest. The old lion turned with one paw
      next to his ear and said: "huh?"
