Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Stork

This the Fox could easily , but the Stork could only wet the end of her long bill in it, and left the meal as as when she began. "I am ," said the Fox, "the soup is just not your thing."

"Do not apologise," said the Stork. "I hope you will return this visit, and come and have diner with me soon." So a day was appointed when the Fox should visit the Stork; but when they were seated at all that was for their dinner was contained in a very long-necked jar with a narrow mouth, in which the Fox could not insert his snout, so all he could manage to do was to the outside of the jar.

"One bad turn deserves another."
