This playlet is a tour-de-force of monosyllabic words following the pattern of BW. Vin is assigned to guard a vat of figs. Bored, he invents threats to the figs—from a pig and then a cat. People come to guard the figs. When Vin screams truly that a rat is attacking the figs, they do not believe him.
