A Woman possessed a Hen that gave her an egg every day.
She often pondered how she might obtain two eggs daily
instead of one, and at last, to gain her purpose, determined
to give the Hen a double allowance of barley. From that day
the Hen became fat and sleek, and never once laid another egg.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
