The Fox and the Stork
At one time the Fox and the Stork were very good friends. So the Fox invited the Stork to dinner, and for a joke put nothing before her but some soup in a very shallow dish. This the Fox could easily lap up, but the Stork could only wet the end of her long bill in it, and left the meal as hungry as when she began. “I am sorry,” said the Fox, “the soup is not to your liking.” “Do not apologise,” said the Stork. “I hope you will return this visit, and come and dine with me soon.” “Of course, I will. It will be a pleasure,” said the Fox. So after a few days the Fox visited the Stork. But when they sat at the table, their dinner was in a very long-necked jar with a narrow mouth. The Fox could not put his snout in it. All he could do was to lick the outside of the jar. “I will not apologise for the dinner,” said the Stork. One bad turn deserves another.
