Tom Bean has cried wolf once too often, so when he spots a real fox in Bernie King's basement, nobody believes him! 'Yeah, right! Another one of your jokes, Tom!'. But Tom just happens to be telling the truth this time - life is so unfair! The only way to prove it is to go back and take a photo - so Tom hatches a plan. But as with everything in his hare-brained life, things don't quite go to plan. Tom ends up in trouble - yet again! Who said the camera never lies?
