"Be my postman!" Anansi said to Snake.
"What will you pay me?" asked Snake.
"You can have a bite of my head tonight!"
Anansi put Rabbit in his bed that night, but Rabbit was suspicious; he dug a hole and escaped.
Snake came calling, "Anansi! Where's your head?"
Anansi called for Rabbit, but there was no answer.
Then Anansi went looking for Rabbit and couldn't find him.
Snake was coming, so Anansi decided to put a pot on his head.
Snake bit the pot. "Ouch!" Biting the pot hurt his mouth.
Snake wasn't friends with Anansi after that.
