Jaguar started pulling weeds, and she just had to stop and scratch.
Armadillo also scratched.
Then Rabbit started weeding. "Remind me," Rabbit said, "does that ox have a spot here?" Rabbit pointed to his shoulder. "Or here?" He pointed to his belly... but really he was scratching!
"He's got a spot there," Man said. "And there."
Rabbit kept pointing as he weeded the field, and Man had to give him the ox.
