*OLD VERSION*: (when we had a strong work ethic)

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long,
building his houseand laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and
dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the
ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies
out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

*************************************

*MODERN VERSION:*

The ant works hard in the withering heat all
summer long, building his house and laying up supplies
for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and
laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should
be warm and well fed while others are cold and
starving.

CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide
pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video
of the ant in his comfortable home with a table
filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this
poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, "It's Not Easy Being Green."

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the
ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, "We shall overcome." Jesse then has the group kneel down
to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Nancy Pelosi & John Kerry exclaim in an interview
with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the
back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate
tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity and
Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his
retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.

Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper
in a defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal judges that Bill Clinton appointed from a list of single-parent welfare recipients.

The ant loses the case.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up
the last bits of the ant's food while the government house
he is in, which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, off to build
another house.


The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related
incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over
by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

And that is how it happens folks - so


MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote!

No, the ant goes back to the colony, organizes with his brothers, overthrows the government, and anything beyond the bill of rights and the original constitution is considered illegal.

The ants were converted to fire ants, due to governmental evolution. The green bugs finally get off their asses, as yellow bugs were trying to take over the yard; the ants and green bugs were eating too much of the yellow bugs' pollen and leaves that they carried into their yard.

Moral of the story, having someone else make stuff for you, doesn't really pay.

No, a 5 year old human sees the grasshopper and ant, steps on them, breaking all their legs, and they are left in agony to die.

My 7 yr old son likes to go around the yrd collect as many ants as he can then he tosses them into these Giant ass spiderwebs in my Shrubs.

He truly enjoys feeding these huge spiders ants for their snacks.
Spider charging biting then wrapping them up as they wiggle for the final time.
So I let these spiders hang in my shrubs for his amusement.
Hey its nature right?

However after reading the story I almost have an over whelming sad feeling for ants now.

Should I tell my 7 yr old to stop this behavior?..
Should I finally destroy these renegade spiders?..
Naw FK that sh!t it gives me 15 minutes of peace a day on my lounge chair with a Cold beer in my hand!

Screw the ANTs!!!


Loved the story by the way!..copied & saved.
