How the rhinoceros got his skin - Rudyard Kipling

This quote was added by dancingbear
ONCE UPON A TIME, on an uninhabited island on the shores of the Red Sea, there lived a Parsee from whose hat the rays of the sun were reflected in more-than-oriental splendor. And the Parsee lived by the Red Sea with nothing but his hat and his knife and his cooking-stove of the kind that you must particularly never touch. And one day he took flour and water and currants and plumbs and sugar and things, and made himself one cake that was two feet across and three feet thick.
