Traditional Version

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
building its house and laying up supplies for the
winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and
laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
 
Come winter,the Ant is warm and well fed. The
Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in
the cold.


Modern Version

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
building its house and laying up supplies for the
winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and
laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
 
Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a
press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be
allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold
and starving.

BBC, Fox News, CNN etc. show up to provide pictures of
the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant
in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can
this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to
suffer so?

Human rights lawyers / activists stage a demonstration in front of the
Ant's house.

Self seeking politicians protest along with other
Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated
to warmer climates during winter.

Amnesty International criticizes the Government / governments for not upholding
the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.

The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking
support for Grasshoppers .

Opposition MPs stage a walkout.

Finally, the Government drafts an ordinance ' - Anti
State Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [ASTAGA],
with effect from the beginning of the winter.
Mobilizes state agencies.

This is applauded by cries of 'Triumph of justice,' ' democratic justice,' and 'revolutionary resurgence of the downtrodden.'

Prime Minister  invites the Grasshopper
to address the Parliament.
