Faun, Horse, and Bird, 1936
So a faun, a chicken, and an ugly horse walk into a barn.
The barn-tender says, "Can I see some ID? No minor characters allowed in here."
The faun draws himself up to his full height and says, "I'm playing Puck. I may be a small actor, but it's not a small part."
The barn-tender nods, and waves him in.
The horse stamps his hoof and tosses his mane. "I portray Black Beauty."
The barn-tender casts a critical eye over his shaggy gray coat. "You look more like Rocinante."
The horse snorts. "I wear a wig on stage."
The barn-tender shrugs, and lets him in.
The chicken is walking around in circles, pecking at the floor, checking through her feathers.
The barn-tender says, "What about you? Got some ID?"
The chicken looks up and flutters her wings. "I seem to have left it across the road."
