NARRATOR: Once upon a time there was a Fox and a Stork who were very good friends.  One day the Fox invited the Stork to dinner.


FOX: Would you like to come to dinner?.


STORK: Sure. What will you cook?.


FOX: It will be a surprise!.


STORK: When and at what time shall I come?.


FOX: How about tomorrow night at seven?.


STORK: Sounds good for me. See you tomorrow.


FOX: See you, and be on time!.


STORK: I will!.


NARRATOR: Next day the Stork arrived on time at the Fox`s house.


FOX: Hello!. Come and sit down, dinner is ready.


STORK: Tell me, what did you cook?.


FOX: I cooked a delicious soup. I`m sure you will like it!.


NARRATOR: But when the Stork sat down at the table, the fox served the soup in a very shallow dish.


FOX: What`s wrong?.


STORK: It`s just that I can`t eat it with my long beak.


FOX: Oh, really?. Well at least you can wet the end of your long bill in it, right?.


STORK: Well, yes, but… never mind.  Anyway I hope you will return this visit, and come and dine with me soon.


FOX: Of course I will.


STORK: How about tomorrow night?.


FOX: I`ll be there!.


NARRATOR: So that night the Stork went home hungry. Next day the Fox showed up on time at the Stork´s home.


STORK: Come in, my good friend,  I was expecting you.


FOX: What did you cook?.


STORK: Since you are my special host, I cooked your favorite food.   A delicious soup!.


FOX: Oh, really?.


STORK: Sure, come and sit down, dinner is served.


NARRATOR:  But the Fox was surprised to see that the soup was served in a very long-necked jar with a narrow mouth.


FOX: The soup indeed looks delicious, but my good friend, I can`t even insert my snout in this jar!.


STORK: Oh, really?. Well at least you can lick the outside of the jar, right?.


FOX:  Well, maybe we can start over.  How about you come over to my house tomorrow night and have dinner?


STORK: I will be there, but ( in a snooty tone) from now on you have to bring your own bowl to dinner.


NARRATOR:  So the next evening, the stork went over to the fox’s house for dinner.


FOX:  Hello, good friend, please sit down.  Dinner is almost ready.


STORK:  (in a snooty tone) So, tell me what you made for supper.


FOX:  I made a delicious stork stew…it is just missing one ingredient. (Pause as fox looks at stork hungrily)  Stork!!!


STORK:  Um…but, I am a stork…


FOX:  I know!!!


NARRATOR:  And then the fox chased the stork out of the house over the hill.  ( Fox chases Stork offstage) And for many miles the fox chased the stork until he finally caught the stork.  (Fox re-enters with feathers in his mouth and  sits at table, shakes open napkin and starts to eat his stew)  And then the fox sat down and enjoyed his delicious stork stew.


FOX:  And remember good friends, don’t try to outfox a  fox.
