I am delighted by this "story of a dam" which features a variation on the idea of the tar-baby type of story which is really ingenious: to trap jackal, the other animals cover the tortoise with tar, put him where jackdal will just think he is a rock and step on him, and then of course the jackal gets more and more entangled the more that he tries to fight. And instead of being silent like the tar baby, the tortoise just tells the outraged jackal again and again, "Do as you like." Fabulous!
