Animal Talmudika / Sarcasm of the Serpent
At some future time all the animals will gather and question the Serpent: 'The Lion attacks and devours; the Wolf tears and consumes; what advantage do you possess''? And the Serpent will answer them: 'What advantage is given those who over-use their tongue?'
- Babylonian Talmud, 'Arachin 15b
