So moral of the story, once a liar, always a liar.


Once upon a time there lived a cowboy in a village. There was a forest near the village. The cowboy used to graze the cows in the field near the forest.  He was very naughty.  He used to befool people by telling lies. While grazing the cows, he almost shouted and said, “Wolf! Wolf! Help! Help!” On hearing his shouting, the easy and simple minded villagers rushed to the spot to help him.  When they went to the spot, they found no wolf. However, when the villagers approached him, the cowboy laughed at them and made fun. In this way, the cowboy made fun of the villagers twice in a row.

At this, the villagers were very dissatisfied with the cowboy and forbade him to indulge in such fun.  But one day a real wolf came to him and started killing his cows one by one. Then the cowboy was very frightened. When he found the wolf, he cried out as before and said, “Wolf! Wolf! Help! Help!” On that day the villagers also heard his shouting but no one came to help him because they thought the cowboy was making fun of them again.  Meanwhile the wolf killed many of his cows and then killed the cowboy.  In fact, the cowboy had to die prematurely on that day because of telling lies.

Moral: Nobody believes a liar.
