The Tortoise and the Hare

Take Two: Given a second chance, how would this be different? Rewrite the ending to a book, movie, scene, fable, quote, etc.
Write an alternate ending for The Tortoise and the Hare

Winner alert!!! (11/24/09)
The Hare, who has decided to take it easy because he's so sure he'll win the race, comes upon the Tortoise laying on his back, stranded in the middle of the road. (Apparently, when he realised he had gained on the Hare and could see the finish line up ahead, he got over-excited, which caused him to lose his balance and fall.) The Hare stops, and soon other rabbits and bunnies and God only knows what other hare-types have joined him, circling the Tortoise. The Hare encourages the crowd: "'Shell' we??" Everybody is "in" and a rollicking game of Spin the Tortoise ensues. ~~~ What? I never said it wouldn't be boring. But you can't deny it: it definitely IS a different "spin" on the original story!
Ze Winner: SparkleFarkle (@WishMittens)

Tortoise & pals exchanged hugs,
Then drank cheap wine from porcelain mugs.
What a party! 'Til they
Took his medal away.
Thanks to performance enhancing drugs.

"…the hare woke up and realized that he had lost the race."

That night, as the tortoise admired his trophy on the fireplace mantle, the hare purchased a pint of whiskey and a semi-automatic handgun from the neighborhood fence. He hid behind a rock at the pond, polished off his bottle, and waited for the lights to go out in the tortoise mud-hole. Unfortunately for the hare, the tortoise had hired a pitbull bodyguard. The drunken hare was no match for the merciless jaws of canine control.

Moral: A dead drunk is nothing more than hare of the dog.
