The Owl and The Fox

“Nobody ever got rich by overestimating the intelligence of people,” chuckled the wise old owl. “People aren’t that smart and can be easily swindled.”

“That may be true,” replied the clever fox. “But history teaches us, when people learn they’ve been swindled, they angrily seize those riches and the swindler.

“So,” concluded the clever fox, “The truly smart people provide a good bargain in any business transaction, swindling no one.”

"How can I trust you," asked the hunter. "You can," replied the snake, "Because I give you my word."

Embarrassed by their response, the bee flew over to the butterfly. “I am the most beautiful of all the insects, not you,” he hollered.

Just then they heard laughter. Looking around, they found the source. It was a little tortoise, who still chuckling looked up at them.
