Unique in all the World

"Who are you?" asked the little prince, and added, "You are very pretty to look at." "I am a fox," the fox said.
"Come and play with me," proposed the little prince. "I am so unhappy."
"I cannot play with you," the fox said. "I am not tamed."...

You are like my fox when I first knew him. He was only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But I have made him my friend, and now he is unique in all the world."
"Men have forgotten this truth," said the fox. "But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.
~From The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Finnish folk fairy tales are often the fox and the bear facing the bear and the fox makes a wide variety of pranks. This gentleman, it seems that it could be someone funny thing in mind. Gorgeous guy.
