Cartoon proverbs

From several Facebook sources recently, this Far Side cartoon, with a twist on the proverbial Curiosity killed the cat, conveying that curiosity is dangerous:

Lots of animals are curious, especially about new things in familiar places around them; cats are famous for it. But scientific curiosity is another thing entirely.

(Woven into the cartoon is the figure of the over-reaching scientist, the researcher who pursues things that, as they say, were better left alone.)
