The Shepherd and the Sheep

A SHEPHERD driving his Sheep to a wood, saw an oak of unusual size full of acorns, and spreading his cloak under the branches, he climbed up into the tree and shook them down. The Sheep, seeing their chance, lit the tree ablaze and took off into the hills. When the Shepherd saw what was done, he said, "O fire! You most ungrateful chemical reaction! You cook and provide warmth for all other men, but you destroy... And sheep! Don't even get me started about you fucking sheep!"

The Shepherd and the Sheep (original fable)

A SHEPHERD driving his Sheep to a wood, saw an oak of unusual size full of acorns, and spreading his cloak under the branches, he climbed up into the tree and shook them down. The Sheep eating the acorns inadvertently frayed and tore the cloak. When the Shepherd came down and saw what was done, he said, "O you most ungrateful creatures! You provide wool to make garments for all other men, but you destroy the clothes of him who feeds you."
