An eccentric and visionary Munchausen

Once Baron Munchausen walked through the forest. He kept a bag of cherries, which he bought in a village shop. However, the deer prevented him from enjoying it. He suddenly appeared from the forest thicket, stood still, looking at the baron. And the baron, as you know, is an avid hunter. But this time he had no bullets with him. He began to shoot the deer with cherry stones. However, what is the use of such shooting? The deer began to leave the hunter. And then Baron Munchausen was lucky. Suddenly he heard the neigh of the horse. He lifted his head and saw a horse in the tree.

– Yes it’s my horse! rejoiced the Baron. “But how did he get on the tree?”

Then the Baron remembered that when the forest was covered with deep snow, and only the tops of trees... were sticking out, he tied a tired horse to one of them, and he went home on foot. When the snow came down, the baron searched the horse for a long time, “unfortunately, I forgot the place where I left it, and only now did he find the horse that remained there at the top of the tree.” What did the Baron take aim and hit the cherry stone straight The horse quickly descended, and the baron, leaping on horseback, rushed after the deer, but what was the baron’s amazement when a deer jumped out of the thicket of the forest with a cherry tree growing between its horns! the animal on the head of one of the bones, which baro shot The Baron took possession of both a deer and a cherry tree, which was entirely covered with ripe fruits.
