The White Cat
Once upon a time a Supervillain stroked his White Cat and told the feline the tale of a tiger attack. He crooned, “And then the tiger ate them all up.” The White Cat purred. “But now for a sad story,” the Supervillain said. “The very next day the tiger attacked another group, but a Superhero flew in and defeated the tiger.” The White Cat lept to its feet, turned to go, looked back at the Supervillain, narrowed its eyes, flicked its tail, and jumped away.
Moral: Fit the tale to the audience.
