He killed the noble Mudjokivis. Of the skin he made him mittens, Made them with the fur side inside, Made them with the skin side outside. He, to get the warm side inside, Put the inside skin side outside; He, to get the cold side outside, Put the warm side fur side inside. Thats why he put the fur side inside, Why he put the skin side outside, Why he turned them inside outside. Given as Anon. in Carolyn WellsParody Anthology. P. 120.
