Scorpion and Turtle

A Scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a Turtle to carry Him on his back across a river.

"Are you crazy?" exclaimed the Turtle.

"You'll sting me while I'm swimming and I'll drown."

"My dear Turtle," laughed the Scorpion, "if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?"

"You're right!" cried the Turtle. "Hop on,!”

The Scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the Turtle a mighty sting. Due Pain Turtle spins and Scorpion sank to the bottom, the Turtle resignedly said:

"Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there'd be no logic in your stinging me. Then why did you do it?"

"It has nothing to do with logic," the drowning Scorpion sadly replied. "It's just my character and habit."

Moral of the Story: Be careful of whom you associate with.
