The Hare And The Tortoise

14 Dec

We all know from whom all the babies come from: the so-called «Klapperstorch» as we say in Germany. But there is still another big question waiting to be answered quite carefully: «Is a hare or a tortoise quicker?»

National Geographic and BBC, both institutions had been so tremendously kind to find and to film and to broadcast their highly surprising answer. Just watch the video and you will become as educated as any possible Santa Claus.

Did you believe this? Well, the truth is: This is the 1947 version of Aesop’s fable, produced by Encyclopedia Brittanica Films. Happy now? Happy now!
