ANIMAL TALES

Safety In Numbers

A fly was flying around a web but it seemed reluctant to land, so finally the resident spider poked its head out and invited it in.
"No, thank you," said the fly. "I was looking for other flies but I don't see any. I only feel safe in a crowd."
The fly streaked away. Presently, it came across a large number of flies sitting on a large piece of paper.
"Don't land!" warned a bee flying past. " It's flypaper. All those flies are stuck to it!"
"What nonsense," retorted the fly. "They're enjoying themselves! See they're dancing!!"
"They're not dancing! They're trying to free themselves!!" yelled the bee, but the fly wasn't listening.
It settled on the flypaper, and got stuck.

Moral: 'Safety in Numbers' may be a good slogan, but it's not always true.
