The Mouse and The Weasel

A small thin mouse gnawed a little hole in a basket of corn. He climbed in and ate until his stomach bulged. When he tried to climb out again, his stomach was too fat to fit through the hole.

A weasel watched him struggling and laughed at him, saying "if you want to escape, there is only one way. You must become as poor and think as you were before you climbed into the basket, and then you will fit your stomach through the hole again."
