The Mule isn't a symbol for being smart in the German language. It is aymbol for a beast of burden, for an animal that can transport goods.

A similar thing is true for the Jackal : In Germany (and probably in other countries as well), people aren't aware that the Jackal is a symbol for proudness in african cultures. An echo of it can be found in Peter Gabriel's song "Come, talk to me" : "… the jackal, proud and tight …"

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
