Summary - A prank by two Travellers in a camp backfires when their scarecrow comes to life.

Two Travellers decided to play a prank on a God-fearing boy in their camp, by placing a scarecrow outside his tent and making it move with lines attached to the arms. At one point, one of them got up to inspect it, and when he touched the legs, he found they were flesh and blood. He dared not look up but ran away and never played such a prank again.
