Clyde and the Grapes

Clyde and the Grapes

Once upon a time, there lived an eminently sensible earth pony named Clyde. One day, while walking through the forest around his home, Clyde discovered a bushel of grapes. They looked wonderfully large and ripe, but Clyde could not reach them no matter how he strained, and he knew no pegasi to obtain them for him.

Clyde went to his wife and daughters and told them of his find. Together, the family walked to the grape bush, and Clyde’s youngest daughter stood on his back. From this position, she could collect as many grapes as she wanted, and pass them down to the others. Once they had picked their fill, they ate them.

The grapes were delicious.

The moral of the story is: Even the most formidable of obstacles can be overcome with friends by your side.
