    Default Dragonfly and Spider

    Anyone else think this is odd?

    On page 23:
    Dragonfly awaited his orders. He deeply respected Spider, but never turned his back on her.

    Then on page 34:
    Off they flew, <snip> the Spider atop the Dragonfly...

    Default spider/dragonfly

    Greenprinces...ditto on ddpepper's comments. I can almost see spider taking a big bite out of the back of dragonfly's back. Probably would to if it wasn't for being at dragonfly's mercy up there in the air. LOL

    Ah, but then there's the parable of the scorpion and the fox...

    It seems that a scorpion wanted to cross a river, but scorpions can't swim. He saw a fox nearby and asked the fox for a ride across the river but the fox refused. "You would sting me and I would die " said the fox.

    "But you will be carrying me across the river, and if I sting you then I would also drown and die " reasoned the scorpion.

    The fox was convinced. The scorpion jumped on his nose and the fox began swimming across the river. Halfway across however the scorpion stung the fox on his nose. As the fox began losing strength and slipping beneath the river's surface he cried out to the scorpion "Now we will both die! Why did you sting me? "

    He answered: "Because I am a scorpion and that's what I do. You knew that before you agreed to carry me across. "
    Either going to crack "Ye Nomenclature" or it's going to crack me...

    As long as we're posting fables...

    THE FOX AND THE MONKEY

    A Fox and a Monkey were on the road together, and fell into a dispute as to which of the two was the better born. They kept it up for some time, till they came to a place where the road passed through a cemetery full of monuments, when the Monkey stopped and looked about him and gave a great sigh. "Why do you sigh?" said the Fox. The Monkey pointed to the tombs and replied, "All the monuments that you see here were put up in honour of my forefathers, who in their day were eminent men." The Fox was speechless for a moment, but quickly recovering he said, "Oh! don't stop at any lie, sir; you're quite safe: I'm sure none of your ancestors will rise up and expose you."

    Boasters brag most when they cannot be detected.

    "All the monuments that you see here were put up in honour of my forefathers, who in their day were eminent men.

    Could we have a moment of silence for my hairy forefathers.



    Thank you!
