  • In the Aesop fable, "The Lion and the Mouse", a mouse gets captured by a lion. The mouse pleads to be let go and tells the lion he will help him one day. The lion laughs so hard that the mouse escapes. The next day, the lion is captured in a net and the mouse nibbles the net to free the lion. The lion realizes he was foolish for ridiculing the mouse for being small.
