Hello everyone,
I have a student looking for a folk tale that I am unfamiliar with.  Have any of 
you heard of it?  She said she did something with this in elementary school.  She 
summarized it like this:

There was a man who had a very silly daughter.  She was always crying because she 
was afraid that the axe hanging above the stairs would kill her daughter, but she 
didn't even have a daughter.  This man wanted to find 3 things sillier than his 
daughter, and whoever was sillier than her could marry her.  One of the silly 
things was guys fishing for the moon (its reflection) in the water.  

Any ideas?
