Storyboard Text

  • A long time ago, back when human civilization was new, and had only just begun, there was a simple farmer. This farmer was a kind man who was never harmed any creatures, except one, the snake.
  • The farmer hated snakes. Whenever he saw one, he would viciously kill it, with little to no mercy. Zeus did not approve of this slaughtering of so many innocent creatures. So he had kindly asked the man to stop the incessant slaughtering of snakes.
  • But The man did not listen. So Zeus had a brilliant idea. He made some of the snakes swim so they could escape the farmer. The farmer then became very confused why there were snakes in his water.
  • But even that didn't stop the farmer from killing the snakes. He waded in the water, waiting for an eel to pass by, and he shot it with an arrow. Zeus saw the farmer disobey him after the god's many attempts to stop him.  
  • So Zeus had decided to teach him a lesson. He used one of his great lightning bolts and threw it down into the lake. Unknowingly he had electrocuted not only the water, but also the eel. But it didn't kill them, no, it turned them part electric.
  • Zeus' idea was, when the farmer waded in the water to kill the eels, he would be electrocuted instead.
