The Pig and the Sheep
One day a fat Pig found his way into a pasture where some Sheep were grazing. The shepherd, who was watching his flock not far away spotted the Pig and decided to capture him for a good meal that evening.
The unwary Pig soon found himself in the clutches of the shepherd and started to squeal loudly, struggling to break free. “Let me go! Let me go!” he yelled. Kicking with all his strength, the Pig slipped out of the hands of the shepherd ran away.
At the edge of the pasture however, one of the Sheep stopped him and said, “The shepherd catches us everyday and drags us off just like that. We don’t make any fuss.”
“Yes, I am sure you don’t,” panted the Pig, “but my case and yours are not the same: he only wants you for wool but he wants to cut me up for my bacon!”
It is easy to be brave when there is no danger.
