Because YES!
 
The Ant and the Grasshopper  MODERN VERSION  

 
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
 
The grasshopper thinks the ant is  a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.  
 
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be  allowed  to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving..  
 
CBS,  NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide  pictures of the shivering grasshopper next  to a video of the ant in  his comfortable home with a table filled with food.  America  is stunned by the sharp contrast.
 
How  can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper  is  allowed to suffer so? 

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper
and  everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not EasyBeing Green ...'  
 
Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant's
house  where the news stations film the SEIU group singing, We  shall     overcome.
 
Then Rev Al Sharpton's assistant has  the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper  while  he damns the ants. The Reverend Al can not attend as he has contractual commitments to appear on his MSNBC show for which he is paid over two million dollars a year to complain that rich people do not care.

President Obama condemns  the ant and  blames President  Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan,  Christopher     Columbus, and the Pope for  the grasshopper's  plight….  

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim  in an interview on The View   
that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper , 
and  both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair  share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic  Equity & Anti-Grasshopper  Act retroactive  to the beginning of the  summer.
 
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number  of green bugs and, having  nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper .

The  story ends as we see the grasshopper and  his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's  food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.  

The grasshopper  is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now  abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders  who terrorize then ramshackle, a once prosperous and  peaceful, neighborhood.

/begin sarcasm 
If he had predicted he was going to be in a wreck and then went out and did it, would that mean that it was premeditated? 

It must blow to try to tell him jokes, when he'd always see the punchline coming. 

And Christmas morning with this guy must have really sucked when he was a kid ...
