1) Prophet arguing with a donkey and loses.
The prophet Balaam was riding on his donkey when the donkey suddenly turned off the road into a field. After hitting the donkey to get back to the road, the donkey started pushing Balaam's leg up against the wall. After hitting his donkey again to move, the donkey just laid down. So Balaam's, angry that his donkey was not cooperating, struck it again. In the bible, this story is explained in the book of Numbers 22:28-29. Then the lord opened the donkey's mouth, and she said to Balaam, "what have i done to you to make you beat me these three times?" Balaam answered the donkey, "you have made a fool of me! If I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.
