The Three Little Pigs.
The Three Little Pigs
Once there were three little pigs who lived together in mutual respect and in harmony with their environment. Using materials which were indigenous to the area, they each built a beautiful house... One day, along came a big, bad wolf with expansionist ideas. He saw the pigs and grew very hungry in both a physical and ideological sense. When the pigs saw the wolf, they run into the house of straw. The wolf ran up to the house and banged on the door, shouting, «Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!»
The pigs shouted back, «Your gunboat tactics hold no fear for pigs defending their homes and culture».
But the wolf wasn't to be denied what he thought was his manifest destiny. So he huffed and puffed and blew down the house of straw. The frightened pigs ran to the house of sticks, with the wolf in hot pursuit. Where the house of straw had stood, other wolves bought up the land and started a banana plantation.
At the house of sticks, the wolf again banged on the door and shouted, «Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!»
The pigs shouted back, «Go to hell, you carnivorous, imperialistic oppressor!»
At this, the wolf chuckled condescendingly. He thought to himself: «They are so childlike in their ways. It will be a shame to see them go, but progress cannot be stopped».
So the wolf huffed and puffed and blew down the house of sticks. The pigs ran to the house of bricks, with the wolf close at their heels. Where the house of sticks stood, other wolves built a time-share condo resort complex for vacationing wolves, with each unit a fiberglass reconstruction of the house of sticks, as well as native curio shops, snorkeling, and dolphin shows.
