THE GEM 10 DEC 2016 : Digging for a worm, up rose a snake. (Bengalese) | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

A man found a snake. Although it was frozen, he recognised it as a poisonous snake. He picked the poor thing up and took it home to revive it. He placed the snake in front of the fire to thaw. Once thawed, he bent down to give it a nice little saucer of milk. The snake lifted its head and bit the good man. As the man lay dying he asked the snake, “How could you do this to me after all I have done for you?” As the snake slid out the door, it turned to the good man and said, “Stop your whingeing. You knew I was a poisonous snake when you picked me up. What else did you expect me to do?!” (Respect, Aug 1996)
