One day，the five fingers had a terrible quarrel.The Thumb（拇指）said first，"I'm the eldest.People often hold me up in approval（赞同）and say'Thumbs up'（呱呱叫）.And when doing something，I'm on oneside while you four on the other side..Aren't I the greatest？"
The Index Finger refused to obey and argued，"People always stretch（伸展）me out to point to things.And they often use me to taste food.It's clear that I'm the most useful one."
The middle finger said proudly，"I'm the longest and thickest，and I stand in the middle.It's only I who am worthy of being the greatest."
The Ring Finger answered back sarcastically（批评地），"If I were not the most important，why Don't you wear the gold ring and only I do？"
Just then，a mosquito（蚊子）flew into the ear.The Little Finger challenged（挑战），"What use is it boasting？Which is the greatest，just let him scratch inside the ear to drive it out.
The five fingers were engaged in（忙于）a heated arguement.The Ear said，"All of you are very capable（有能力的）.But who can hold a pen independly（独立地）and write out"I am the greatest'？"
The five fingers tried one after another.But all of them did a hard but unsuccessful job.
Finally，the Ear ask them to work together to write"We are the greatest."This time，they succeeded.From this the five fingers learned a good lesson.
