Description:Gerawat tells a folk story about two brothers, Palug Rayeh (Big or Older Fool) and Palug I'it (Small or Younger Fool). This is one of many such stories that were told to childen. As always, Palug Rayeh is less successful that Palug I'it. In this story, the two brothers try to catch crows. After some while, Palug I'it, the younger brother, manages to catch a crow and heads off home. Not wanting to be outdone, the older brother stays to try and catch more crows, but with no success. When he returns to ask his brother what he should use for bait, he mishears and thinks he should use his mother's ear. So he chases his mother to try and cut off her ear and she gets very cross with him. So at the end he still hasn't caught any crows! The following equipment was used: Zoom H4N, Lavalier Mic, wind gag, Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Lens.
