There once was a flower who was pretty. The sun shone. One day a nuclear device fell out of the sky onto the little flower and broke its petal. The flower said to the rattlesnake: take me to the hospital. So the rattlesnake took the flower to a newspaper. Why are you taking me to a newspaper, the flower said, I asked you to take me to a hospital. The rattlesnake said: There are no more hospitals, you can read about it in the newspaper. And so the rattlesnake took the flower to the newspaper.

Moral: Be afraid of nuclear devices
