The Clever Monkey

Two tom cats stole a king-size cake. But they fell out over the division of the spoils. "It's mine because I discovered It," argued one of the Cats. "But I actually picked it up. So I own the whole of it," answered the other.

As they were quarreling, a Monkey was passing by. He offered to act as the mediator. The Cats agreed. "I will divide the cake into two, one for each of you, the monkey suggested. He cut the cake into two pieces. "Oh, they are unequal in size," he said, and ate a portion of the bigger one. But now the other portion looked bigger. He bit a slice from the bigger one. This went on till, only two small cake pieces remained. "Let me have these two pieces for myself. I have spent all the time to solve your dispute," the Monkey said, and left the scene.

Moral: Give him an inch and he will have all.
