The Oak of the Devil

"Long ago in a deep ooze there lived the Devil. He enjoyed food, and that is why others called him 'Fatty'! Once, the Fatty ran out of food and stepped into the god Perkunas garden. He picked up some vegetables and started eating. The god Perkunas (Thunder) saw the Fatty and was enraged: ' How dare you to eat things from my garden!! ' The Thunder turned vegetables into a sack of acorns. The 'Fatty' grabbed the sack and ran away. The Thunder went after him, but in vain. As The Devil ran, he last all his acorns. That is why Silute is full of oaks."
