The Naked Bald Man and the Fly

A FLY bit the bare head of a Naked Bald Man who, endeavoring to destroy it, gave himself a heavy slap. Escaping, the Fly said mockingly, "You who have wished to revenge, even with death, the Prick of a tiny insect, see what you have done to yourself to add insult to injury?"

The Bald Man replied, "I can easily make peace with myself, because I know there was no intention to hurt. But you, an ill-favored and contemptible insect who delights in sucking human blood, I wish that I could have killed you even if I had incurred a heavier penalty."

"Then we shall up the ante!" the fly declared as it swooped down onto the Man's scrotum for another dose of blood.
