Since it's close to Easter, here is a fairy tale involving eggs. To sum it up:
A country farmer finds a goose in a nest sitting on a golden egg. He goes back every morning, collecting the golden eggs. On the third day, he gets greedy and takes the goose home. He decides to cut it open to get all the eggs out at once. Instead, he just kills the goose, and it's empty inside. Moral of the story...it doesn't pay to be greedy!
