There’s a cat behind the mouse. The cat that spots the fly thinks to himself, if that fly drops 6 inches, the fish will leap out of the water, the bear will reach out to grab the fish and the hunter will get up to shoot the bear and drop the cheese sandwich, and the mouse will go after the cheese sandwich and the cat will go after the mouse.
So what happens?
The fly drops 6 inches, the fish leaps out of the water, the bear reaches out to grab the fish, the hunter gets up to shoot the bear and drops his cheese sandwich, the mouse goes after the cheese sandwich and the cat leaps to get the mouse, but misses and rolls into the water.
Now what’s the moral of the story?
