"The mouse, the bird, and the sausage"
People made up the weirdest stories. Out of the Complete Fairy Tales of the Brother Grimm, translated by Jack Zipes...

"The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage"
"Once upon a time, a mouse, a bird, and a sausage came together and set up house. For a long time they lived together in peace and happiness, and they managed to increase their possessions by a considerable amount. The bird's job was to fly into the forest every day and bring back wood. The mouse had to carry water, light the fire, and set the table, while the sausage did the cooking.
Yet, those who lead the good life are always looking for ways to make it even better..."

Eventually, the bird demands changes, so uh, the sausage goes to get wood, but gets eaten by a dog (who claimed the sausage had forged letters on the sausage), the mouse died trying to cook (err, seasoning it by sliding through the vegetables like the sausage used to do. But she got stuck and "had to pay for it with her lief."), and the bird went frantic trying to find the mouse - he didn't pay attention to the fire, and eventually the house went up in flames. In his haste to put out the fire, the "bucket slipped and fell into the well, dragging the bird along. Since he could not get himself out, he was left to drown."

The End.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly when I saw the title...

Wasn't the sausage afraid of falling into the fire and, you know, getting cooked?

Apparently not? I dunno. There's so many unrealistic things about the story anyways...

LOL. For some reason that was what stood out for me amid all of the other unrealistic things.

o.O Wow.... moral of story: don't change jobs and don't complain about your job because the others maybe harder. Moral= doesn't really make sense but ok....
