Tortoise Beats Hare

After reading the titles Bug is outraged at the whole concept of a tortoise beating him (calling the cartoon's makers 'Stupid joiks' in the process), Bugs proceeds to challenge Cecil Turtle to a race. Yet try as he might the rabbit just can't seem to make any ground; unbeknownst to him this is because of the fact that the turtle has called his extensive identical relatives to pose as him along the length of the track.
