Story Transcript:

从前有一群猕猴,在林中游走。他们一起到了一棵大树下,树下有口井,月亮的影子倒映在井水中央。这时猕猴的首领见此月影,对一众猴子说道:“月亮落在井中,快要被淹死了,我们应当把他捞出来,否则以后的长夜将会变得黑暗。”大家一起议论道:“说说有什么办法能捞出它来?“这时猕猴首领说:“我知道捞出它的办法。我抓住树枝,你抓住我尾巴。经过许多手尾相连接,直到靠近水面,就可以伸手捞出它。这时猕猴们就按照首领的话,一个猴子抓住一个猴子的尾巴,一直连接到接近水面。离水面最近的小猴子将手伸到井水中,对着明晃晃的月亮一把抓起,可是除了抓住几滴水珠外,怎么也抓不到月亮。这时树枝折断,所有的猕猴跌落井水中。他们扑腾一会儿后,上了岸。其中一个猴子猛一抬头,忽然发现月亮依然在天上,于是大声说:“不用捞了,不用捞了,月亮还在天上呢!”

众猴子都抬头朝天上看,月亮果真好端端在天上呢。由于众猴不了解井中月亮的真相,以假当真,所以空忙一场,又愚蠢又可笑。
