A snake and a rabbit were racing along a pair of intersecting forest
pathways one day, when they collided at the point where the pathways
meet. They immediately began to argue with one another as to who
was at fault for the mishap. When the snake remarked that he had been
blind since birth, and thus should be given additional leeway, the
rabbit said that he, too, had been blind since birth. The two animals
then forgot about the collision and began commiserating concerning
the problems of being blind. The snake said that his greatest regret
was the loss of his identity. He had never been able to see his
reflection in water, and for that reason did not know exactly what he
looked like, or even what he was. The rabbit declared that he had
the same problem.
Seeing a way that they could help each other, the rabbit proposed
that one feel the other from head to toe, and then try to describe
what the other animal was. The snake agreed, and started by winding
himself around the rabbit. After a few moments, he announced,
"You've got very soft, fuzzy fur, long ears, big rear feet, and
a little fuzzy ball for a tail. I think that you must be a bunny
The rabbit was much relieved to find his identity, and
proceeded to return the favor to the snake. After feeling about the
snake's body for a few minutes, he asserted, "Well, you're scaly,
you're slimy, you've got beady little eyes, you squirm and slither
all the time, and you've got a forked tongue. I think you're a lawyer!"
