There once we're three proud knot tiers named William,Arthanpodersipt and Fred.
All three bragged that their knots were the best. So they decided to have a contest.
Who could make the best blindfold out of knotted cordage.
They got Gwiffelshnort the local magistrate to test their best.
First off was Arthanpodersirpt.
she took a length of cordage from behind her ear then twisted,turned,looped and bound with all her might.
The blinder was placed over Gwiffelshnort's eyes.
"Very nice knots Arty but I can still see."
Then it was Fred's turn.
Fred took his favourite bit of buffalo hair reverse twist out of an old shoe and went to work.
Oh how he labored and suffered then suffered while laboring.
Finally Fred finished his eye soother and placed it on Gwiffelshnort's brow.
Old Gwiffelshnort said "I know you tried hard Fred but
I can still see a bit and my forehead smells funny.
Just what part of the Buffalo is this hair from?"😐
Finally it was William's turn.
William let slip the noose knot from his private purse and
carefully opened up the top. Out sprung the largest female Black Widow spider ever seen.
William tickled her spinnerets and she secreted the most beautiful fine silk known anywhere.
William's deft fingers soon had that silk shaped into the most wonderful work.
He with no tribulation at all placed it on Gwiffelshnort.
"Why William said Gwiffelshnort, I cannot see a thing.
It is as if darkest night has fallen. I declare you the winner."
The moral of this story is,
There are none so blind as those who Will' knots see.
