A Cat caught a Rooster, and pondered how he might find a reasonable excuse for eating the Rooster.
The Cat accused the Rooster of being a nuisance to people by crowing in the night time and not permitting them to sleep. The Rooster defended himself by saying that he did this for the benefit of people, that they might rise in time for work.
The Cat replied, “Although you have many excuses, I shall not remain supperless”; and he made a meal of him.
Moral: It doesn’t matter what you say to an evil person: they will still do evil.
