A cliff

A man was chased off a cliff by a tiger. He fell, and just managed to hold onto a branch that was jutting out the rock.

Six feet above him stood the tiger, snarling. A hundred feet below, a violent sea lashed on to the rocks. To his horror, he noticed that the branch he was clutching was being gnawed at its roots by two rats.

Seeing that he was doomed, he cried out, "O Lord, save me!" He heard a voice reply, "Of course, I will save you. But first, let go of the branch!”
