The Lying Shepherd
 
    A bored and lonely shepherd had this idea to ask for help, saying that a wolf was attacking his flocks.
    Some villagers came to rescue the sheep but they saw it was a joke. Even if the villagers reproached that to him, the shepherd repeated the joke, thinking that it was fun. The third time, when the wolves really attacked the flock nobody came to help him.
    The shepherd was left without some of his sheep.
    The mug doesn't go to the weal for ever!

Pãstorul mincinos
Unui pãstor plictisit de singurãtate îi veni idea sã strige dupã ajutoare, insinuând cã turma de oi i-a fost atactã de lupi.
Câtiva sãteni au sãrit în ajutorul lui, dar au vãzut cã era doar o glumã.
Cu toate cã  sãtenii îl dojenirã, pãstorul mai repetã aceastã glumã, vãzând cã e o distractie interesantã.
A treia oarã, când lupii au atacat într-adevãr turma de oi, nimeni din sat nu a mai  intervenit.. Pãstorul a rãmas fãrã câteva oi.
Ulciorul nu merge de multe ori la apã!
