Transcript of Fractured Fairy Tales

A summary of the
Three Little Pigs:

Wolf claimed he was not trying to "huff and puff" and blow down their houses made of sticks, straw and brick to eat the pigs. Instead, he was suffering from an awful cold and accidentally sneezed while visiting the pigs to borrow a cup of sugar. You see, wolf just wanted to bake a cake for his granny! Is it his fault that the pigs built such flimsy homes that couldn't stand up to a strong sneeze?

... Is this how you remember the story?
