In Case You Missed It…

A scorpion wants to get to the other side of the river. ‘Cause why not. Plus, he owes some money to the badger so he’s gotta get outta Dodge.

It’s complicated.

Anyway, the scorpion sees a frog and asks the frog to carry him across the river.

“No f-ing way, bruh,” said the Gen Z frog.

The frog explained that he was afraid of being stung by the scorpion.

“Dude…” the scorpion said. And then he proceeded to explain to the frog that it would be ridiculous for him to sting the frog. After all, if he did, they would both drown.

The frog agreed with that reasoning. Plus the scorpion offered him fifty bucks for the ride.

So the scorpion hops on the frog’s back and the frog begins swimming across the river. Halfway to the other side, the scorpion stings the frog.

Like we didn’t see that coming.

The frog drowns.
The scorpion drowns.
This isn’t a happy Hollywood ending.

We’ll get to the leadership lesson in a second.
First, the monkey trap.
