    "C'mon, man," said the thumb, "take the damn thing!"


            "What is it?" the squirrel wondered. "Some kind of trick?"


            "No! It's a nut!"


            "I usually bury mine."


            "That's ridiculous!


            "Really? Where do you think this board came from?


            "I got it at the lumber store."


            "No, you fool, it came from the acorn I planted."


            "Wait a minute! I nailed it! You don't own it!"


            "This is my land. My people were here before you."


            "You're a squirrel! You don't have a deed!"


            "You're a big thumb! I could bite right now, if I wanted."


            "Go for it! I'll take the board back!"


            "You won't have a fence."


            "Neither will you."


            "I don't need one."


            "Yes you do!"


            "No I don't."






            Etc, etc, etc. (Characters depicted in this story are fictional
