Ducks and geese and leftists (and way too many Republicans) better scurry (apologies to Rogers and Hammerstein)
I came across this great parable and immediately thought of the lefty pukes (and too many Republicans) out there that do this to the American taxpayer:
Once upon a time a monk stole 3 ducks from a farmer, plucked them and stuffed their feathers into a bag. He quietly picked up the bag, so as not to be noticed, and ascended the stairs of his monastery's highest tower. Upon reaching the top of the tower, he dumped the feathers out of a window. The feathers were swept away by the wind and scattered irretrievably.
Down below, the blacksmith saw the monk's curious actions. He reported to his neighbors what the monk had done: "The monk has stolen 3 geese and scattered their feathers!"
Confronted with his crime, the monk denied any wrongdoing. He instead turned to the blacksmith and replied, "The feathers I scattered were from ducks, sir, not geese, and you are a slanderer."
The crowd nodded in agreement. They chastised the blacksmith for his carelessness and consoled the shamefully treated monk.
And the farmer was out 3 ducks.
