Two Cats and the Monkey
Two cats happen to grab a large piece of bread at the same time. As they are fighting over who gets to keep it, or how to divide it equally, a monkey comes along and offers to divide it equally in return for a small piece of bread. The monkey breaks the bread into two pieces and weighs them on a scale. As one piece is heavier, he eats a part of it as his fee. Now, the other piece is heavier, so he eats a part of that. This continues till there is no more bread left. The monkey runs away and the cats are left hungry.
Moral of the story: Resolve your issues peacefully, or others will take advantage of the discord.
Union is Strength
An old man on his deathbed is very disappointed that his sons are constantly fighting with each other and don't live together in harmony. To teach them a lesson, he asks each of them to bring him a stick. He then ties the sticks together as one bundle and asks them to break it. After they are done trying unsuccessfully, he unties the bundle and hands a single stick to each of them and asks them to try again. Obviously, the sticks are now easily snapped. The old man tells his sons that if they don't stay together in harmony, their enemies will break them individually with ease.
Moral of the story: Stick together with your friends/family, or else..
Specklet: I hope they're not still making the People Of The World one. Negroes = yikes.
