Every nation in the world has its own folklore heritage — legends, myths, fairy-tales. In such stories the wisdom of every nation is collected and embodied, although some of the nations have similar tales, especially those who are neighbors. Legend and myths employ elements of supernatural origin: magic, gods, wonderful creatures. Tales are stories that are supposed to teach the coming generations by depicting various situations and various types of behavior demonstrated by the heroes. “Whippety Stourie” is a story from German folklore that has a moral-teaching implication. The main idea of it is never force someone to perform unimportant and unnecessary work because the result probably may shock both you and the one who do it.
