Aesops Fable Friday

The Weasel and the Man.

A Man once caught a Weasel, which was always sneaking about the house, and was just going to drown it in a tub of water, when it begged hard for its life, and said to him, "Surely you haven't the heart to put me to death? Think how useful I have been in clearing your house of the mice and lizards which used to infest it, and show your gratitude by sparing my life."

"You have not been altogether useless, I grant you," said the Man: "but who killed the fowls? Who stole the meat? No, no! You do much more harm than good, and die you shall."

Moral of the story: The good you do should always outweigh the bad.

The lefties out there would attempt to 'rehabilitate' the weasel - wouldn't they?

The lefties ARE the weasel.

Gotta love Mike's comment!

The fact is that some can never be rehabilitated. As my father used to say, "You can't straighten out a pretzel."

The weasel in this fable has a different moral code. And certain moral codes are unreconcilable, though the Left CLAIMS to want to reconcile all moral codes.

A great fable for our time, Monica R!

P.S. Got a fresh moonbat on aisle 1:


Seems to think the "polls" show conservatives turning against Bush and the Iraq war.

What's your opinion G.M?

Weasels, and their relatives, are one of the few animals that will kill, for the joy of killing. Weasels, like sexual predators, can't be reformed!

M, I got a Cool site of the Day link from Kim Komando that may interest you. It's called, "Quiz Lab."


It's about exams for children. You, being a home schooler, might find this helpful. I haven't actually tried it myself but you can take a look.

AOW, Troll, ConservativeKat - so true. I thought this was a great fable for the times we live in.

I suppose weasels could have some purpose if they are kept on a short lead! We could spare a few (here) if they were prepared to flush out treacherous rats ruling our parliament! The stink coming from there needs something to sort it out, send for the vermin terminators!

Yes Sparky - there is some dirty work that needs to be done.
