One day, a group of flies discovered a honeycomb from which honey was leaking out.

Without being careful and thinking twice, they excitedly hurried over to it so as to eat some honey.

The honey was so delicious and sweet that they could not stop eating it until it was all finished. Meanwhile, their little feet became stuck together with the sweet honey.

The flies could not fly again as they were so strongly stuck in the honeycomb. Almost drowning in this treasure they exclaimed:

” Because we wanted to eat all the honey at one pleasurable moment, we will remain trapped. Poor us! We are going to die here!”
