A Handy Pocket Guide to Distinguishing Wolves from Foxes

  1. Everyone you know is a wolf or a fox (and if we grow up, we grow up to be badgers).
  2. Foxes laugh at all their own jokes. Wolves just repeat the ones they heard from foxes.
  3. Foxes are pretty; wolves are lovely. Foxes can dart, but wolves can run.
  4. Foxes can walk on top of the snow, whereas wolves clear a path for the others.
  5. When a wolf loves a fox, it ends with tears shed. When a fox loves a fox, it ends in blood.
  6. A fox loved a wolf once. It never ended.
  7. Wolves cry; foxes burrow.
  8. Everyone kills.
