THE ANT & THE GRASSHOPPER, THE REAL STORY



I know it's true because I read it it the paper!!


In a field one summer's day a grasshopper was hopping about, chirping & singing & taking deep drags on a marijuana cigarette that he had found. An ant passed by, carrying with great effort an ear of corn he was taking to the nest.
"Hey, man, come toke with me," said the grasshopper, "instead of schlepping that corn.”
"I am helping to lay up food for the winter," said the ant, "& recommend you to do the same."
"Why bother about winter?" said the grasshopper; "We’ve got plenty of food now & this is great Maui Wowee!!" The ant visited for a few minutes, then went on its way & continued its hard work.
When the winter came the grasshopper had no food and found itself dying of hunger while it saw the ants distributing corn & grain from the stores they had collected in the summer. Then the grasshopper knew: It is best to prepare for days of need or, barring that, to take the ants’ supplies.  Since he hadn’t prepared, he did the latter.  All the ants starved to death except one, who was unfortunately squashed under the boot of a passing hiker.

Moral: If you’re an ant & you visit with a grasshopper, don’t let him know where you live.
