Once upon a time there were three little pigs who wanted to go out into the world and seek their fortunes. Their Mama said, "Oh no, wait till you are three big pigs -- THEN you can go seek your fortunes."

"But why, Mama?" said the first little pig.

"Well, for one thing," she told them, "there are big, bad wolves in this world."

"What do wolves do?" said the second little pig.

"Well, one thing they do is they huff and they puff and then blow your house down -- and then eat you up."

"Is that why our house is made of bricks?" said the third little pig.

"Exactly," their Mama said. "And why you have no uncles."

The three little pigs nodded, and stayed home practicing building houses until they were big pigs.

If you can write more of these, you will have a very funny book. Do, please!

Re: So funny
If being the operative word. Also, isn't the market for fractured fairy tales kinda saturated?

Re: So funny
I think there's always room for one more fractured fairy tale book.
