The Mosquito and The Spider

One day a mosquito became ensnared in a web. The spider, placing one spindly leg after the other, eagerly stalked towards its helpless prey.

“Please don’t eat me,” pleaded the mosquito.

The spider laughed and replied, “Eat you? Don’t you know we spiders are unable to chew our food? No, I’m going to suck you up and drink your liquefied insides!”

The spider waggled his fangs and began to suck the mosquito through his short drinking straw mouth.

Once the lifeless mosquito was drained, the spider began to itch terribly from the inside out. He had forgotten that the enzymes inside the insect caused a terrible allergic reaction. He scratched and scratched until he too, was no more.

Moral – Beware those you think can be sucked dry; for they may have inside knowledge.
