A haughty bird spotted a mouse crawling through the field.
The bird landed next to the mouse and said: “Oh, poor mouse! A hungry fox prowls this field! What are you going to do if he sees you?”
The mouse answered: “I have but one option – I will run away”.
The bird boasted: “I know several ways to escape the fox!”
Just then, the fox arrived!
The mouse ran away, and the fox ate the bird while it tried to figure out which escape method to use.
Moral: It pays to keep things simple!
