C'mon, what could the moral be? You know it's something pithy about not allowing sentimentality to lead one to expect outcomes other than those nature has predetermined. Or something.

Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a Shelby GT500 stuck in the snow. She took the car home, tuned it up, and waxed it until she could see her reflection in the paint.

And the car answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."
