The Fox & The Crawfish

 
 
Fox wanted to catch Crawfish and eat him; and Crawfish said, "We will run a race, and, if you can beat me, you can have me."  Then they agreed to race across seven hills.  When they squatted down by the starting-point, Fox stretched his tail out near Crawfish, and Crawfish seized it.  Then one of them said, "Let us go!"  And they started off, Fox dragging Crawfish after him without knowing it.  When Fox got to the end of the course, he switched around suddenly to see if Crawfish were coming, and Crawfish was thrown some distance farther on.  Then he called out to Fox, and said, "I told you that you could not outrun me."
