The Taskmaster and the Slaves, by Zhargonidus

Once upon a time, there was a taskmaster who beat his slaves to make them labour harder. One day, he found an exhausted Goblin slave slacking off, and roared at it to get back to work at once. The Goblin slave rushed up, and the taskmaster thought to drive on the thrall with strikes. And so it was, that the taskmaster gripped a sledgehammer and killed the Goblin slave with a single hammerblow to the spine.

Seeing this waste of property, the taskmaster picked up a barbed whip instead, and soon found another dozing thrall. It was an Ogre slave, whom the taskmaster gave a good thrashing. However, the thick Ogre was not harmed much by the whip, yet its anger was kindled by the feeble beating. The Ogre slave ripped the whip from the taskmaster's hand and bound the taskmaster's beard to the barbed whip. The Ogre then flailed about with his master on the whip like a toy, and trounced the taskmaster to death against a brick wall, for such is the fate of those who fail to choose the right tool for the task at hand.

- The Taskmaster and the Slaves, by Despot Zhargonidus Doombeard, the renowned Chaos Dwarf author of fable stories, of our present time

Another great story Admiral Cheers!
Reminds me of some common sayings we have here:
"Bring a gun to a knife fight" & "It's a poor plumber who blames his tools" Hashut!


"Where there's a whip, there's a way!"
