Black Beans

Once upon a time a foolish man carried a cart of black beans to the market to sell. When crossing a bridge, the cart turned over and the beans fell into the river. He went home hurriedly to ask his family to dredge his beans from the river.

After he left, the people living nearby went in to the river and took all the beans away. When the foolish man returned, all he saw in the river were many tadpoles, all of which he mistook for his black beans. He therefore got ready to go into the water and collect them with his servants, but the tadpoles, seeing the people, took flight.

"Black beans, ah, black beans!" the foolish man shouted. "Don't you recognize me? Even though you have grown tails, I can still recognize your original shape!"

(Compiled and Translated by Liu Jiangting et al.)
