Underfables: Insensitivity


           Once upon a time a Pyromaniac collected barrels full of gelignite in his basement. A neighbor discovered this, and raised an alarm; but the Pyromaniac replied, “How dare he disturb the peace with his loud, flashy, dangerous and hurtful words?” The Men in the White Coats were so impressed by this reasoning that they gave the Pyromaniac free room and board for the rest of his life.

           Moral: Self-pity is its own reward.
