In Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Nun's Priest's Tale" from The Canterbury Tales, the fox flatters the rooster into showing off how well he can crow. And, of course, the fate that befalls the hot-shot is that the fox grabs him by the neck.

This Chanticleer stood high upon his toes,
He stretched his neck, his eyes began to close,
His beak to open; with his eyes shut tight
He then began to sing with all his might.
