The Fox and the Grapes

Another childhood Aesop memory
A fox spied a bunch of grapes hanging from a vine above his path.
"They look good and juicy" he said and jumped to catch them. Try as he might he could not reach them.
He stormed off in high dudgeon. "They were obviously sour and dried up anyway" he grumbled.
The moral being that some folk will desire sweet things but then decry them if they cannot have them.
