The Wolf and the Lamb is one of Aesop’s most telling fables. In it, a wolf finds a lamb who has strayed from the flock. He’s hungry, but feels he needs to justify his right to eat the lamb.
First, he says that the lamb insulted him last year. The lamb explains that he wasn’t even alive last year.
Next, the wolf claims that the lamb has eaten from his pasture. The lamb replies that he has not yet tasted grass.
Then, the wolf accuses the lamb of drinking from his well. The lamb replies he has only ever drunken from his mother’s milk.
Then, angry and still hungry, the wolf eats the lamb, saying “Well! I won’t remain supperless, even though you refute every one of my imputations.”
