“One beautiful morning, Brer Fox went to plant some peanuts. It wasn’t too long before they were full grown. That whole time, Brer Rabbit, a crazy bunny who liked to joke around and get into trouble, was watching. When they were good to eat, he’d go and grab two handfuls. Soon, it got so bad that Brer Fox set up traps to kill whoever was stealing them. No matter how hard he tried, he could never catch who was doing it.”
