The cunning porridge

Once, when his parents were not at home, a boy decided to cook some porridge. He took a pot, poured in some cereal, added water, and placed the pot on the stove. After waiting a bit, the boy got bored and went to his room to flip through a pop-up book on his bed. And, of course, he fell asleep. Soon, the porridge crawled out of the pot, sneaked into the boy’s room, and strangled him. The boy’s name was Billy.

Moral. If you put porridge on the stove, don’t get distracted. Stand ready with a ladle, and when the porridge climbs out of the pot, immediately hit it with the ladle on the head.
