The Fox and the Buds

A SOBER FOX saw some clusters of ripe green nuggets hanging from a trellised weed. She resorted to all her tricks to get at them, but wearied herself in vain, for she could not reach them.

At last she turned away, hiding her disappointment and saying: "The Buds are illegal for good reason, and not as fun as I thought."

The Fox and the Grapes (original fable)

A FAMISHED FOX saw some clusters of ripe black grapes hanging from a trellised vine. She resorted to all her tricks to get at them, but wearied herself in vain, for she could not reach them. At last she turned away, hiding her disappointment and saying: "The Grapes are sour, and not ripe as I thought."
