THE FLY

There was a trout swimming along in a river when it noticed a fly hovering about 6 inches above the water. The trout, feeling a bit hungry thought; if that fly came down about 5 inches I could jump out of the water and eat it.
At the same time there was a bear standing on the river bank, the bear noticed the fly and thought if that fly was to go down about 5 inches the trout would jump out of the water to eat the fly and I could lean forward and grab the trout.
Behind the bear was a hunter who was thinking; if that fly was to come down 5 inches the trout would jump up to grab it, the bear would lean forward to grab the trout and I could shoot the bear.
Hiding in the grass behind the hunter was a mouse who had spotted a cheese sandwich hanging out of the hunters pocket. He was thinking if that fly would come down 5 inches the trout would jump out of the water to grab the fly, the bear would lean forward to grab the trout, the hunter would lean forward to shoot the bear and the cheese sandwich would fall out of his pocket and he could eat that.
Behind the mouse was a cat who was thinking; if that fly was to come down 5 inches, the trout would jump out of the water to grab it, the bear would lean forward to grab the trout, the hunter would lean forward to shoot the bear, his sandwich would fall out of his pocket, the mouse would run forward to get the sandwich and I could grab the mouse.
So what happened.
The trout came down 5 inches, the trout jumped out of the water to eat the fly, the bear leant forward and grabbed the trout, the hunter leant forward to shoot the bear and dropped his sandwich, the mouse ran forward to eat the cheese sandwich, the cat pounced at the mouse but landed in the river!
What is the morel of the story...

Anywhere there is a fly willing to come down 5 inches, chances are that there will be a wet pussy close by ...
