“Don’t be like apple. Apple is not good for you. Apple is bad. I say it because I have just eaten bad apple. So, don’t eat apple. It is low quality fruit, ” said Motiparrot.

“Hi, parrot! You talk too much! Not all my fruits are bad, ” Apple Tree protested.
“..but I ate bad apple. It’s the evidence,” said Motiparrot.
“Yeah, just because you only ate a bad apple from the bucket, you said that all apple were bad. You judge without observation. You overgeneralize it, ” said Orang Utan.

“Yuck!” Motiparrot spitted it out.
“It’s sour. It’s not good to eat. Guys, Don’t eat lemon,” said Motiparrot in a loud voice.
“You just see with your eyes. Lemon is good for health. Just because you don’t like it, you say it’s bad. Many facts say lemon is healthy food. Please use your head before you speak,” said Otan the orangutan.

Then, Otan swung to the bucket of durian. He took a durian. He brought the durian and jumped to the front of the parrot.
Otan dropped the durian to the ground between Motiparrot and him. It was broken and Otan opened it.

“Look!” Said Otan the orangutan, pointing his finger to the durian.
Motiparrot the red parrot looked at the flesh of durian.
“Some of them is good. Some of them is bad. There is good and bad thing in it,” said Motiparrot.
