That's funny Louis.  I guess that would have to be a marsh rabbit !

I was referring to a famous  story of  a 17th century French writer, Jean de la Fontaine , in which he was describing the race between a rabbit and a turtle. The rabbit was so sure of himself that he was fooling around and making fun of the turtle. So, the turtle won the race. The moral of the story was, it is useless to run, but you should start on time! 😅

I've always enjoyed that story. In a way it was my philosophy at work. I would be criticizer for the amount of time I'd take to complete a project but later respected for its accuracy and completeness Turtle and the Hare.
