The Cock and the Jewel

Aesop


A COCK, scratching for food for himself and his hens, found a precious stone and exclaimed: "If your owner had found thee, and not I, he would have taken thee up, and have set thee in thy first estate; but I have found thee for no purpose. I would rather have one barleycorn than all the jewels in the world."

Quote of the moment:
Mate, this parrot wouldn't VOOM if you put four million volts through it!
