• One day, a young man told someone a naughty secret. They told another, and told another, and another, and another, until everyone knew.
    A priest man found out.
    The priest caught the man, and brought him to his church.
    A stack of boxes lay at the stage.
    These are mice, said the priest.
    Tonight we will let them go.
    And so, at night they let them go.
    The priest said, Now, go find the mice.
    He said, But I can't! I don't know where they all went!
    The priest said, And that, is GOSSIP!
    From then on, he never gossiped again.
