*OLD VERSION*

 

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
House and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the
Ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come
Winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or
Shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF SCENARIO NO. 1: Be responsible for yourself!

*MODERN VERSION*

 

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
House and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the
Ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come
Winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to
Know why the ant should be warm and well fed while others are cold and
Starving.

CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a Table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can
This be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is
Allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries
When they sing, "It's Not Easy Being Green."

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where
The News stations film the group singing, "We shall overcome" Jesse then has The group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Nancy Pelosi & John Kerry exclaim in an interview with Larry King that
The Ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an
Immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity and Anti-Grasshopper Act
Retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing
To hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to
Pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.

Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a
Defamation Suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal Judges that Bill Clinton appointed from a list of single-parent welfare
Recipients.

The ant loses the case.

 

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of
The Ant's' food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be
The ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow. The grasshopper is found dead in a
Drug-related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a
Gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF SCENARIO NO. 2: Be very, very careful how you vote.
