- Once upon a time there was a master living in a house and he had a servant boy. He told the boy to go out and kill a fowl. The boy did so and when he had it killed he put it in the pot. He turned it over several times to see if it were cooked. When it was soft one of the legs fell off it.
He put it on a plate and left it on the table for the master and the visitor. After dinner he asked the boy what happened the leg of the fowl. The boy said that all the fowl had only one leg. All the hens were standing on their one foot because it was the winter time.
The master went out and he called "Chuck Chuck" and all the hens ran on their two feet. Then the boy said "You did not say Chuck Chuck to the fowl on the plate"Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
