A Story With A Moral


Recommended Posts

This is a story about a fly, a fish, a bear, a hunter, a mouse and a

cat. There is a moral to this story, but not exactly the one most of us

are expecting!

In the dead of summer a fly was resting on a leaf beside a beautiful

British Columbia lake.

The hot, dry fly who said to no one in particular, "Gosh...if I go down

three inches I will feel the mist from the water and I will be


There was a fish in the water thinking, "Gosh...if that fly goes down

three inches, I can eat him."

There was a bear on the shore thinking, "Gosh...if that fly goes down

three inches that fish will jump for the fly...and I will grab him!"

It also happened that a hunter was farther up the bank of the lake

preparing to eat a cheese sandwich....

"Gosh," he thought, "if that fly goes down three inches...and that fish

leaps for it...that bear will expose himself and grab for the fish. I'll

shoot the bear and have a proper lunch."

Now, you probably think this is enough activity on one bank of a lake,

but I can tell you there's more....

A wee mouse by the hunter's foot was thinking, "Gosh if that fly goes

down three inches...and that fish jumps for that fly... and that bear

grabs for that fish...the dumb hunter will shoot the bear and drop his

cheese sandwich."

A cat lurking in the bushes took in this scene and thought, (as was

fashionable to do on the banks of this particular lake around lunch


"Gosh...if that fly goes down three inches...and that fish jumps for

that fly .. and that bear grabs for that fish and that hunter shoots

that bear...and that mouse makes off with the cheese sandwich ... then I

can have the mouse for lunch."

The poor fly is finally so hot and so dry that he heads down for the

cooling mist of the water.

The fish swallows the fly... The bear grabs the fish... The hunter

shoots the bear.. The mouse grabs the cheese sandwich... The cat jumps

for the mouse.. The mouse ducks...The cat falls into the water and


The moral of the story is:

Whenever a fly goes down three inches, some pussy is in serious danger.
