The Weasel And The File
A weasel once wandered into a blacksmith’s shop. There it saw an iron file which was shining in the sunlight. The weasel thought of the file as some food and started to lick the file. In order to overpower the iron file, the weasel started to lick on it in a mad rush. Her tongue was badly scrapped in the process and started to bleed. When the weasel had the taste of blood, she became happier and even more ferocious. She thought that she was able to devour the file. She kept on licking the file till her tongue was completely gone. The moral of the story is, “If you indulge in useless activity to gain some profit, you end up destroying yourself”.
