there’s two kinds of people – the frog and the scorpion

There’s two kinds of people. Those who give and those who take.

It’s OK… don’t mind if I prattle on do you?
Two types Fergus. The Scorpion and the frog. Ever heard of em?


A scorpion wants to cross the river but he can’t swim. He goes to a frog who can and asks for a ride. The frog says “I’ll give you a ride on my back. And you’ll go and sting me!” The Scorpion replies “It would not be in my interest to sting you since I’d be on your back and we both should drown.”

Frog thinks about this logic for a while and accepts the deal. Takes the scorpion on his back. Braves the waters. Half way over feels a burning spear in his side. And realizes the scorpion has stung him after all. And as they both sink beneath the waves, a frog cries out “WHY DID YOU STING ME MR SCORPION? NOW WE BOTH WILL DROWN!?”

The Scorpion replies “I can’t help it. It’s in my nature.”

So what’s that supposed to mean?

It mean what it says. A Scorpion does what is in it’s nature.

Take off the hood man.


Because you are kind. And it’s in your nature.
