The Fox and the Grapes

Daily Messenger - - International -

One af­ter­noon a fox was walk­ing through the for­est and spot­ted a bunch of grapes hang­ing from over a lofty branch. "Just the thing to quench my thirst," quoted the fox.

Tak­ing a few steps back, the fox jumped and just missed the hang­ing grapes. Again the fox took a few paces back and tried to reach them but still failed.

Fi­nally, giv­ing up, the fox turned up his nose and said, "They're prob­a­bly sour any­way," and pro­ceeded to walk away.
