I have a rhyme here that may shed some insight.

There once was a man name Bob, who all day long sat like a log.
The only time he got up off his feet, was when he went to get something to eat.
The ants that ate and stayed to play, soon found themselves in the grave.

Bitten once-twice all over, poor Bob ran for cover
The beast was gone, the ants danced with song-but later all fell over.

Now tell me who is the main characters representing and what moral lesson do you take from it.

The main characters are the ants and bob. Bob represents a "bigger" child who is getting picked on by the smaller children (the ants). Bob cannot take it anymore and he attacks the bullies back. The real story and the question is poses: The bigger child who was doing nothing gets picked on by the smaller children and has enough, he decides to take things into his own hands unfortunately in the form of violence. It poses the question, is violence ever acceptable even for self defence. Additionally, the moral of the story therefore would be that violence can only lead to more violence thus, the only way to truly solve the problem is from a calm civilised conversation.

We are born, we come out of the WOMB.
We will die, we will make our way into the TOMB.

A man with his feet in his ass.
Ants should stick with the swarm.
Never ever, under any circumstances bite a man with his feet in his ass, particularly Bob.
But I have never seen a live ant lay down, stand up, or fall over.

The moral lesson is that Chiristianity makes you a flaming idiot.

The dead guy is the main character and the moral lessons are that planking is retarded and ants are little assholes who love getting drunk.

Something against binge drinking?

You said Bob was dead, when it was ants that was dead
You said there was beer, where there was no mentioning of beer

I would hate to see you, when you are drunk!
