A yellow duck was on his way to meet with the Emperor in
Peking and deliver him an important message.
Right as he's about to jump into the Yellow river to swim across and
meet the Emperor's people await him on the other side of the river band,
a crocodile that was resting on the edge nearby called out to him,
“I see that you like to cross the river, let me help you.”
“What? Are you crazy, you are a crocodile and you
will eat me,” said the yellow duck.
“You and this ducky brain of yours, why would I do that, you aren't
thinking clearly right now. I also like to serve the emperor, trust me
well, the currents are stronger than you are and I promise to get you
to the other side faster than you could.”
“OK.” this made sense to the yellow duck and he
got convinced to jump on the crocodile's back.

Another version of the story tells that when the crocodile was about
to eat the yellow duck he was ready and right away jumped from his back

7, 8, 9, 10 crocodiles and the clever yellow duck made it across the
river to meet with the emperor's people.
All rivers start with the human heart, and
always remember when swimming across rivers to
beware of crocodiles. Once confronted with one,
be fast to step on top of him/her, never look
back, and keep on with this beautiful
adventure we call life.
