The scene is the arrivals hall at the airport. A man is lying asleep on the floor holding onto a suitcase which says 'contains 499 hares'. Ahead of him a finish line is painted on the ground and a customs official is standing there with a flag to wave down the contestants and a walkie-talkie radio. Refers to the Aesop's fable about the hare and the tortoise.
