Aesop's Fable Friday
A Peacock teased a Crane about the dullness of his plumage. "Look at my brilliant colors," said he, "and see how much finer they are than your poor feathers."
"I am not denying," replied the Crane, "that yours are far brighter than mine; but when it comes to flying I can soar into the clouds, whereas you are confined to the earth like any plain chicken."
Moral of the story: Looks aren't everything.
Whew! That crane really gave it back to him, didn't he? Not only did he put the knife in, but he gave it an extra turn!
