2nd ACEOp Fable:
THE BOY AND THE WOLF
You know this one. Shepherd boy runs into town, saying there's a wolf. He's lying, of course. He laughs, the populace get's irritated. This happens two more times. The fourth time, there is a wolf, and no one believes the kid. All the sheep get eaten. Moral: Don't cry wolf unless there is a wolf. My only problem with this one is the notion that people will stop believing the wolf-criers. People love to be scared, because it gives them an excuse to hate people (or wolves?) they don't like.
