THE DOG AND THE SHELLFISH
There was a certain dog who liked to swallow eggs. When he happened to come
across a shellfish, he thought it was an egg. The dog opened his mouth, took
a great big gulp, and swallowed the shellfish whole. When his stomach grew heavy
and began to ache, the dog remarked, 'Well, that's what I get for thinking that
anything round must be an egg!'
The story teaches us that there are unexpected consequences in store for
people who attempt to do something that is beyond their comprehension.
