A monkey made a great impression by dancing before an assembly of animals, who elected him their king. The fox was jealous. Noticing a snare with a piece of meat in it, he took the monkey to it and said, “Here’s a choice titbit that I have found. Instead of eating it myself I have kept it for you as a perquisite of your royal office.”
The monkey went at carelessly and was caught in the snare. When he accused the fox of laying a trap for him, the fox replied. “Fancy a fool like you being king of the animals!”
People, who attempt things without due consideration suffer for it and get laughed at into the bargain.
