The trap (of prejudice)

Once upon a time a man was taking a walk in the forest.
All of a sudden he saw a tiny little person roaming around between the trees. The little guy was wearing a red pointed cap and he had a long white beard. He looked just like a human being, only very small. His head only reaching to the knee of the man.
Wow, he looks like a lapricorn!, the man thought.

“Good day!” he said.
“Good day!” said the little friendly guy.
They sat next to each other on the green moss and they talked for a while.
The man was curious and asked a lot of questions, about where the little fellow lived and what he ate…
“I live in a hollow tree,” said the little guy, “and I eat what I catch in my traps. Small forest animals and things… Lapricorns never eat human meat.”

He showed the man his ingenious traps that he made and set between the trees.
“You can try one if you like," said the little guy.
The man thought they were interesting and decided to give a trap a try. Once he had gotten himself firmly stuck, he had complimented the little man about the strength of the trap. The small guy then produced a huge, shiny, sharp butcher’s knife.
“Hey!” said the man shocked, “you said lapricorns don’t eat human meat!”
“That’s right,” said the little guy, “they don’t. But you know, lapricorns don’t exist.”
