Aesop's Fable Friday.

The Ants

Ants were once men and made their living by tilling the soil.

But, not content with the results of their own work, they were always casting longing eyes upon the crops and fruits of their neighbors, which they stole, whenever they got the chance, and added to their own store.

At last their greediness made Jupiter so angry that he changed them into Ants.

But, though their forms were changed, their nature remained the same: and so, to this day, they go about among the cornfields and gather the fruits of others' labor, and store them up for their own use.

Moral of the story: You may punish a thief, but his habits remain.

That's right. You can punish a thief but that thief will still forget to put the toilet seat back down. Damn thieves.

Rasta - not only should you put the seat down, but you should also put the lid down. Hygiene!! Plus it's bad 'feng-shui' to leave the lid open. Money leakage.

Once upon a time..... A Scotsmans wife suffered an injury and the Scotsman wished to send a telegram to her mother. Being a thrify Scot, this is what he sent: Anicin hospital, adamant bitter assinine places. 6 words, very inexpensive.

This is the translation: Ann is in hospital, a damn ant bit her ass in nine places.

That's all anyone needs to know about ants. :)
