glumshoe:

“Slow and steady wins the race” is not the fucking moral of The Tortoise and the Hare. Try “don’t be a smug, haughty asshole and disregard people lacking obvious advantages” or “persistence and effort can be powerful on their own”. The tortoise didn’t win because he was slow and steady, he won because the hare looked down on him as his inferior.

I thought the moral was, “They’re both delicious, but tortoise takes longer to cook.”
