Legend holds stories of a young betting chap called Eureka Piff. Crafty Eureka used to love an opportunity to make some nuts(??) and often found himself in situations completely out of his control as his shifty pals used to fleece him of all his wealth.
One misty morning intrigued Eureka decided enough was enough and came up with a cunning plan to win his fortunes back. Laid on his neighbour's branch he dreamed up radical ways of fleecing his friends of their craftily won fortunes. Jumping competitions, charades, even line dance off's came to mind but all of a sudden heavy rains started to batter a now soggy Eureka.
Whilst quickly escaping the rains he picked the last of the lemons and lonesome limes from his neighbour's trees and filled his coat to the max. On his venture home, weighed down Eureka slipped and landed in a flooded pond !! (where is this going??)
After shaking off the wet, much to his surprise, his eyes caught sight of the stolen lemons floating on the surface but the crafty limes were nowhere to be seen.
Soaking Eureka dived to the bottom of the pond to retrieve his limes and went quickly on his way. The next day soon came about and he used the fruit to win his nut load back as his friends placed bets on if they thought a lemon or lime would float – what would you put your cash on ???
