Description:
When three animals go fishing in a sweet potato boat with oars of sugarcane, two of the three realize their equipment is edible, and soon a disaster occurs. But more than the humorous plot, it is nonsense words like 'umbiumbi, umbuumbu' and 'kusukusu, naamnaam' that make the tale a great favorite. The story ends with a common motif: monkeys clubbing each other to death after butterflies alight on their noses.
