Once upon a time, there was a naughty shepherd boy in charge of a goat.
Everyday he used to cry “Wolf wolf” causing the villagers to leave their work and run to his aid – in vain
One day a real wolf showed up and the shepherd boy cried his patent cry “Wolf wolf”
The villagers left their work and ran to his aid; they cornered the wolf and killed
(lot of blood was spilled).
Later (at leisure) they chopped off the shepherd boy’s tongue, for Lying is a Sin!
Finally they ate his goat
(sliced by its throat).
