Story Summary

Mistah Fox can't decide how to get back at Miz Molly Cottontail after she bested him until Miz Fox wumps him upside the head for being shiftless. He just lays there, letting everyone think he's dead, and hoping Molly Cottontail will come to the funeral and get good and close to the coffin. Well she comes all right, but being ever suspicious of Mistah Fox, she puts pepper in the flowers that she sets right by Fox's head.
