THE ANT AND THE

GRASSHOPPER

This one is a little
different…… Two Different Versions….

…………..  Two Different Morals


OLD 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 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 and the rain 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

allowed to be warm and well fed while he is 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…’

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house

where the news stations film the group singing, “We

shall overcome.” Then Rev. Jeremiah

Wright has the group
kneel down to pray to God for the
grasshopper’s

sake.

President Obama condemns

the ant and blames

President Bush, President
Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the
Founding Fathers for the grasshopper’s plight.

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid 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 &

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 Green Czar and given

to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading

friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the
government house he is
in, which, as you recall, just happens to be
the
ant’s old house,

crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t

maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen
again.

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 ramshackle, once prosperous

and once peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses
bringing the rest of the free world with it.

MORAL OF THE

STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.


I’ve

sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant

not a grasshopper!  Make sure that you pass

this on to other ants.  Don’t bother sending

it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t

understand it, anyway
