The Pig and The Sheep

A Pig found his way into a meadow where a flock of Sheep were grazing. The shepherd caught him, and was proceeding to carry him off to the butcher’s when he set up a loud squealing and struggled to get free. The Sheep rebuked him for making such a to-do, and said to him, "The shepherd catches us regularly and drags us off just like that, and we don’t make any fuss." "No, I dare say not," replied the Pig, "but my case and yours are altogether different: he only wants you for wool, but he wants me for bacon."

Moral: It is easy to be brave when there is no danger.

    The shepherd shaves the sheep for their wool and puts them back in the field. But the pig he takes to slaughter and eat.

    Of course, the sheep don’t make noise and they’re brave because their lives aren’t at stake.
