A hungry Anansi sticks his hand in a hole hoping to find something to eat. While he was searching something grabs his hand. Afraid Anansi asks who has his hand. A deep voice from within the hole replies "It's me Fling-aMile" and then flings him a mile to prove it. After landing in the exact same spot twice, Anansi marks the spot with a stake gets his BBQ grill and goes out looking for dinner. After tricking goat, hen, antelope. etc, to reach into the hole, he tries to trick monkey. But from his vantage point up in the tree monkey had seen Anansi tricks and reverses the game. Monkey eats Anansi. Moral: Whenever you trick someone, Someone is waiting to trick you.
