African Trickster story
December 8, 2013 2:00 PM   Subscribe

Years ago a friend had a great collection of Anansi stories and distinctly remember one bizarre story that we told and re-told. I have failed to find the specific story or the collection/website it was from.

The story involves Anansi, foreskin, an outhouse and a baby. I think the story concerns the reason men are circumcised. I'm totally unclear on the details. I have looked at a few collections online and came up with nothing. I am SURE this story is real but my recollection is most likely flawed.

Is it Kirikou?

The track listing shows that tale #5 is the value of the amputated foreskin.

Maybe, but not that particular movie.
