A heifer went up to an ox, who was straining hard at the plough, and sympathised with him in a rather patronising sort of way on the necessity of his having to work so hard. Not long afterwards there was a festival in the village and everyone kept holiday: but, whereas the ox was turned loose into the pasture, the heifer was seized and led off to sacrifice.

“Ah,” said the ox, with a grim smile, “I see now why you were allowed to have such an idle time: it was because you were always intended for the altar.”
