Ive got the rest of my life, he thought, so I could train this little ant and, at the same time. give me something to do and relieve the stress. So he started teaching the little ant. Many years went by and with the help of courses and lessons he had got in the mail he taught the little ant all about law. The little ant got so good at his new trade that he got the man freed. When the papers heard his story they went wild. As they left the prison, the man asked, What do you want to do? I would like to go to a bar like you told me so much about, answered the little ant. So off they went to find a bar. In the bar the man started drinking and, feeling good, he started pestering the barman. Do you know who I am? he asked the bartender, No, I dont, said the bartender. Im the man who the papers have been writing so much about. Still dont know you, said the bartender. So he took the little ant out of the box and sat him on the bar. You see that little ant there on the bar? I sure do, and with his thumb the bartender squashed the ant and said, How the hell did that get here? I just exterminated the place! QUIZ 1.
