Brer Rabbit (Characters, Religion, Folklore, and Urban Legends)

"Don't bother. Duncan hates Mexico."
"Is that so, Brer Rabbit?"

Folklore is rife with trickster characters. Loki. Anansi. Ashton Kutcher. Brer Rabbit (short for "Brother Rabbit") is the trickster character in African-American folklore. The best-known tale is "Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby," in which Brer Rabbit pleads with Brer Fox not to throw him into the briar patch when, in fact, that is exactly what he wants him to do, as he was "born and bred in the briar patch." Reverse psychology! Naturally, then, when Veronica insists that Duncan hates Mexico, Lamb suspects that Duncan was born and bred in Mexico. Which he wasn't, but Lamb isn't that bright.
