Le Guilloux Corbeau

This picture puts together elements of several fables. Notice that the crow is dropping his precious cheese; only this time, there is no taker for it! It looks as though the brand name of the cheese is "Le Vache qui rit"! Then the joke of the tortoise's overtaking of the hare is here "explained" by putting the tortoise onto a virtual water-ski.
