They told the traveller:
"Here is your task for the day. You must tell us what is in these three sacks by feeling the outside."
A man brought him the three sacks, containing a rabbit, a bear...and a snake.
He started by feeling the outside of the first sack:
"Mmm. Huge ears." His hands went down the sack."Teeny tiny balls. That must be a rabbit."
"You're right. That's amazing. Here's the next sack."
"Tiny ears" (reaching down.) "En-ORM-ous balls! Must be a bear."
"That's fantastic. Two out of two. Now try the third." (This is the snake.)
"No ears. No balls either........
"Must be a music critic."
