Speaking of Aesop, the common understanding of the fable of the grasshopper and the ants is bullshit. It's actually a warning to artists that capitalists are evil bastards.

The grasshopper studied his craft and worked hard all year to entertain the ants for free. Come the Winter, they murdered him.

"Oh, playing an instrument isn't hard work", said the ants. The shifty little cunts.

@sinvega that's pretty good, but if you can say it again without using a derogatory term for female genitalia, it would be even better

@sinvega okay, I was polite, and I did ask you not to use a derogatory term for female genitalia. Nicely. Now I am reporting you and blocking you. Good day, person who punches down and not up, please have as nice a life as you are able, considering you seem to believe that female genitalia is an insult somehow.
