Contributors - Alex MacDonald

Summary - How the fairies took a hump from one man's back and gave it to another.

A humpbacked man came upon fairies churning milk. They were singing a verse, but he gave them a better one. The butter was churned more quickly, and they took away his hump. Another humpbacked man came. He also gave them a verse, but it spoilt their rhythm and the butter wouldn't come. They gave him the hump they had taken from the other man.
