The scorpion and the frog

A scorpion asks a frog to carry him over a river. The frog is afraid of being stung, but the scorpion argues that if it did so, both would sink and the scorpion would drown. The frog then agrees, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both.


As they are drowning, the frog says to the scorpion, “Why did you sting me?”

The scorpion says. “Because it is my nature.”


Good one :+1:

I got one too:
Dad criticize his son as both are crafts men in making Idols.
Dad used to excel and son started to show imporvements.
Son excelled and dads business went down, but still criticized his son in his art.
Son questioned when will you praise me for my work, but he still criticized.
After many years sons business too went down, as he moved away.
Moral: Utill you have someone to criticize, one will give the best. IMO

I don’t trust a scorpion.

Got stung by one on a camping trip when I was a kid.

When we first moved to California and were living away from the city,

I would find them all the time in our dog’s water bowl.

Freaked me out.

Every time.
