While wandering around the aisles of a local flea market, I noticed this sign painted on the wall.
I am willing to believe that the ants are the most credit worthy creatures of the entire insect world. Their diligence and probity is proverbial: "Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise!" Nevertheless, leery of financial transactions with insects (I, whilst a lad, having been snookered out of my lunch money by a glib seventeen-year locust), I declined the opportunity of obtaining an IOU from an ant.
