The Fox and The Goat

A Fox fell into a deep pit from which he could not get out. A Goat passed by shortly afterwards, and asked the Fox what he was doing down there.

"Oh, have you not heard?" said the Fox; "there is going to be a great hunting, so I jumped down here as this sounds safe and good hideout. Why don't you come down too?"

The Goat thought well of this advice, and jumped down into the pit.

The Fox immediately jumped on her back, and by putting his foot on her long horns managed to jump up to the edge of the pit. "Good-bye, friend," said the Fox, "if you had brains equal to the number of hairs in your beard you would not have jumped down without a way back up."

Moral : Look before you leap
