This is an old folk story, so it has been around for much longer than this version. I chose this story because I remember as a kid that it was a funny way to trick some people. I know that the lesson is cooperation, but to me it seems to also bring about the idea where you have someone help you by making them seem like it was their plan originally. In the tale, everyone does end up getting some soup after unwittingly working together.
