The Boy Who Cried Wolf – Wikipedia

The Boy Who Cried Wolf is one of Aesop’s Fables, numbered 210 in the Perry Index.[1] From it is derived the English idiom “to cry wolf”, defined as “to give a false alarm” in Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable[2] and glossed by the Oxford English Dictionary as meaning to make false claims, with the result that subsequent true claims are disbelieved.[3] http://ift.tt/1t7Srnr
