SEVENTH ACEOp Fable:

THE CROW AND THE PITCHER

Summary:
You know this one. The crow is thirsty, there's water in a pitcher, but not enough for the crow to reach it. So the crow drops in some pebbles to raise the water level to a drinkable height.

Moral:
Uh, smart people are never thirsty, I guess.

My take:
The crow in this fable is female. The wife points out to me that if this were a male crow, he'd get his head stuck in the pitcher and then parade around, proud of his accomplishment. In this case, I have to agree.

Here's the wife's take.

yeah, but first the crow would stick his entire wing in his beak.
