In a land far, far away, a long time ago, a certain town was suddenly beset by a plague of mice. And all were scared of nothing and no one. These mice chased dogs and frightened cats and made them scuttle off, tails between their legs!
The townspeople called a meeting. To the mayor they said, “We elected to solve our problems. Come on, then! Help us solve this problem before it is too late!” They did not pay him to grow fat and do nothing.
