A young wizard, with evil in his heart, wanting to prove to his mentor that he was ready to venture out on his own, decided to walk through the enchanted forest one night. He was successful in transporting himself to the forest, but when there his confidence began to wane.

As he walked eyes appeared in the dark all around him. A low growl was then heard behind him in a tall tree. He quickly turned and said, “Who dat up THERE.”

The young wizard then heard, “Who dat down there.”

The young wizard now scared and shaking with fear in an effort to regain some of his composure asked, “Who dat up there saying who dat down there when I say who dat up there?”

Then suddenly a griffin swooped down from the tree saying “Me, Griffin of the forest.” The Griffin killed him eating him for dinner.

Moral of the Story: Evil pride in one’s unproven abilities is folly and could get you eaten.
