The Frog...

...grew up on Aesop's Fables. They are, often, little animal stories with a moral. Which is why he likes this post by The Big Pharaoh. It was posted on 7/10/2005. I am too technologically inept to locate an archive URL for this piece.


.
You’re mowing your grass. Suddenly you saw an ugly poisonous viper right in front of you. You run to fetch an axe in order to kill it but your wife screams at your face and orders you to stop.
.
“Are you crazy? You want to kill a living soul! You are barbaric” she screams.
.
“But it’s dangerous. It can kill us” you say.
.
“No, it is not. And what options do you have. Do you want to kill it and commit murder? Do you want to throw it out of our house so that some viper hunter will take it and abuse it. PETA will not be happy with that. You should respect the Universal PETA Rules. Now I want to teach you a lesson you barbaric human being. I am going to sleep with the kids and you’re going to sleep with the viper” your wife says.
.
“WHAT??”
.
“You heard me honey. The viper is sleeping in our bed, right beside you so that you learn how to respect animal rights”So, you pick up the viper and place it in your bed. The viper sleeps peacefully beside you for 3 days. On the fourth day, you wake up screaming. The viper bit you.

Pop Quiz:Why am I telling you this story? What do I want to say exactly?You don’t know?Well, I’ll give you a hint:

London is your bed.
