The Mole and His Mother

A MOLE, a creature blind from birth, once said to his Mother: "I am sure that I can see, Mother!" In the desire to prove to him his mistake, his Mother placed before him a few grains of arsenic, and asked, "What is it?"

The young Mole sniffed it, licked it and said, "It is a pebble."

His Mother exclaimed: "My son, I am afraid that you are not only blind, but now you are dangerously sick as well."
