Oh, The World Owes Me A Living...

Do be do be do be do be doooo!

First spotted this joke at Rab's place, now spotted on the Bossman's page I thought it best to give this wonderful cartoon from the 40s an airing.

A cautionary tale indeed.

Of course in our world somehow the grasshopper convinced enough people the summer would last forever and so they deposed the queen. Now that its winter and the pickings are slim he still will not admit he's right.

When foreign nests will no longer bail him out, when the pantry is finally empty, and the ants are eating tree bark to maintain a meagre, miserable existence then they will see that the truth.

And they will eat him and his cronies alive.
