Description:A group of people are baking chestnuts. A lisepsep manages to divert them from their activity by making the tide go low: They decide to go look for shellfish. While they're away, the lisepsep replaces the contents of the chestnut shells by his own feces. When the men discover the trick that has been played on them, they devise a plan to catch the lisepsep. The captive creature is cut into pieces and roasted, but to no avail. The meat does not get soft and when they throw away the pieces, the lisepsep is alive again. He can however be tricked into swallowing a burning hot stone, which eventually kills him.
