The Gingerbread Man of Song & Story & Fable, with a few of his friends. You remember: "Run, run, as fast as you can! You can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man!’ The sweet/spicy little smart alec ran away from everyone but the Fox whose shrewd mind cooked up a plan at the river. Let this be a lesson to one & all – eat your gingerbread men as soon as they’re baked; this will save them, & you, a lot of angst. These were baked by my sister-in-law & grandkid(s) just before Thanksgiving. They never made it to the river.
