Once on a time there was a lad who was walking along a road cracking nuts, so he found one that was worm-eaten, and just at that very moment he met the Deil.
‘Is it true, now’, said the lad, ‘what they say, that the Deil can make himself as small as he chooses, and thrust himself in through a pinhole?’
‘Yes it is’, said the Deil.
‘Oh! it is, is it? then let me see you do it, and just creep into this nut’, said the lad.
So the Deil did it.
