The Boy Who Cried Wolf

There once was a boy who kept sheep not far from the village. He would often become bored and to amuse himself he would call out,

     «Wolf! Wolf,» although there was no wolf about.  

      The villagers would stop what they were doing and run to save the sheep from the wolf’s jaw. Once they arrived at the pasture, the boy just laughed. The naughty boy played this joke over and over until the villagers tired of him. 

      One day while the boy was watching the sheep, a wolf did come into the fold. The boy cried and cried, 

      «Wolf! Wolf!» 

     No one came. The wolf had a feast of sheep that day.

No one will believe a habitual liar even when he is telling the truth.

The Cat and the Rooster

One day a cat happens to grab hold of the rooster for its evening meal. She wanted, however, a good excuse for killing the bird.
     «I need to rid the world of you,» she told the rooster, «You constantly make your horrible noises throughout the night, interfering with men’s much-needed sleep. The world will be better off without you.»

«No,» said the rooster, «I crow for the good of men. I wake them up each morning when it is time for them to start work for the day, so that they may earn their living.»

     «Ridiculous!» said the cat, and she ate him.
