The ANT and the GRASSHOPPER

I’m sure you know the story of the ant and the grasshopper, but this one is a bit different…

There are two different versions and two different morals:

OLD VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Winter comes and the ant is warm and well-fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

 MODERN VERSION

 

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Winter comes and the ant is warm and well-fed.

The shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well-fed while he is cold and starving. CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, and CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, “It’s Not Easy Being Green.”

Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the SEIU group singing “We Shall Overcome.”

Then “Rev.” Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake, while he condemns the ant.

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King and the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity and Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

As the story ends we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug-related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful neighborhood.

The entire nation collapses, bringing the rest of the free world with it.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2012!!

I’ve sent this to you because I believe you are an ant, not a grasshopper! Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.

Don’t bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t understand it anyway!
