The ants and the grasshopper

A grasshopper who had sung merrily all summer long was hungry when winter came, so she went to some ants who lived nearby and asked for a bit of the food they had stored away. The ants (Aesop to the contrary notwithstanding) answered:

“It's good you have come. We have switched over to computerized farming and have food enough for all of us. The only thing we ask of you is that you stay and sing.”
