Stock Aesops
"If you believe in yourself, eat all your school, stay in milk, drink your teeth, don't do sleep, and get 8 hours of drugs, you can get work!"

Stock Aesops are the morals that the writers and producers of TV most often love to explore. They sometimes contradict each other, but it's a clumsy writer indeed who sticks two contradictory Aesops into the same script. It happens, though.

Many are Older Than Feudalism. And some, indeed, come straight from the original Aesop's Fables.

Examples:


For every proverb, there is an equal and opposite proverb.
