Aesop's Hidden Fables, well one of them

Once upon a time there lived a lion that would often eat creatures of the jungle. This lion terrorized the population, allowing a system of hierarchy to form which conveniently placing the lion on top. As King of the Jungle, he would eat random residents purely for the sake of survival.

One day, he came upon a porcupine. The porcupine, unaware of the lion's presence, was casually existing. The lion, confused by the porcupine's arrogant attitude, confronted it.

"Why do you exist near me? I never gave you permission to live!"

The porcupine, seeing that the lion was a dumb beast, decided to play a trick on the lion.

"Well, Mr. Lion, I'm just here to show you the error of your ways. I have some command you need to follow."

"Huh?" the lion muttered in a confused state.

"I've been existing, waiting for you to show up. I need to tell you something: you are not allowed to eat me. You are allowed to bound around the jungle and roar all you want, but you are not allowed to chew and swallow me."

The lion, seeing this as an attack on his authority, dove upon the prickly shrew-thing. The porcupine was immediately eaten on the spot. This was not what the little guy had anticipated, but it was too late. Apparently reverse-reverse psychology does not work on jungle animals.

At least the lion got what he deserved. He was unable to poop out the porcupine later and died of intestinal problems.

The moral of this story is obvious. If you are incredibly stupid, scroll below for the moral.

Keep scrolling.

Keep going.

Almost there.

Just a little further....

Wow. I can't believe you've just admitted that you're stupid. I don't need to tell stupid people the morals of Aesop's Fables.

Stupid person.
