Meaning

In many cultures' folklore, the fox is a symbol of cunning.

“Outfox” is entrenched in the English language as a verb that indicates “excessive” wit and resourcefulness.

The fox as a trickster is first presented in Western Literature in Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale” presents an image of the fox as a clever and cunning predator, though he is outwitted using his own pride.
