As you saddle up and head out over the hills, you spot some vultures in the trees. Seizing an opportunity, you call out in German, "Look, those vultures are eyeing that cheetah's lunch!"

Still looking shocked, he decides to try to trick you. He looks around and calls out in German, "Those ducks, they are bobbing in the water." Calmly, you reply in German, "Yes, there are a few in the water and few over there on the grass too." Finally you smile, rolling your eyes, and tell him in German, "I guess birds of a feather flock together. You didn't think I was going to come unprepared again, did you?"
