The Scorpion and the Frog

The scorpion and the frog set out across the stream.
A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion says, "Because if I do, I will die too." The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. 


The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp "Why?" 

Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

  3. Very perceptive. Funny, too. I've wondered just what motivates "Larry" these days, where he can go along sane as heck, and suddenly turn in attack-man flailing and flinging nonsense everywhere. You're right, it is his nature. His sudden ad hominem assault on Spinelli recently is a classic example....Spinelli had not "alluded" nor even mentioned TOP in any way, but Larry" apparently projected his paranoia anyway and pooped away. Same irrational spastic reaction suddenly about your "nickname" ... too funny. He is a classic example of violation of the "Rule of Holes."

    1. Larry is Larry. It is his nature. And yeah, he needs to stop digging.

  4. Mr. Cialis has ventured into delusional ankle bitter territory and he's pissed all over it to make sure that no one else intrudes into it. What a sad decline.
