Maybe people did descend from lower animals because some church members seem to be stubborn as MULES about church work, sly as a FOX in business deals, busy as BEES in spreading the latest gossip. But they have eyes like a HAWK to see the mote in a brother’s eye. They are eager as BEAVERS about church suppers, but lazy as DOGS about prayer meetings and mean as SNAKES when things don’t go their way. They are noisy as CROWS in calling for the church to advance but as SNAILS in visiting. Many are night OWLS on Saturday night and BEDBUGS on Sunday mornings as scarce as a HEN’S tooth on Sunday night.

Taken from "The Torch"

I have never thought about that...and sadly enough it's true in a lot of cases.
