The Pizza Party – Part XXXVIIIAug 9th, 2010 | By Coach | Category: Fables Fairy Tales and Folklore, Series | 540 views
Mother Sow, setting up a birthday party at the back of the barn for twin piglets, said she’d send out for a pizza delivery. “Six ought to do us,” she said, “and we’ll order the big size.”
Her brother House, and the piglets’ uncle, said, “Why not make a pick-up. It’ll be cheaper.” House was the biggest pig on the farm.
“My, that’s a good idea,” Mother Sow said, “But who can we get to make that trip?”
“I’d gladly go,” said House, licking his chops on the side, a move that his sister missed.
She gave him the money for the 6 pizzas, and said, “Well, hurry back. We’ll have the party at 6 o’clock.”
“The only thing that would hold me up is the condition of the bridge. Some of the folks say it is in poor shape.”
“Oh,” she said. “I wouldn’t worry about that. Just hurry off on your way.” She practically pushed him out of the barnyard.
She did not see him for two days, and when she did with no pizzas on hand, he said with swinish gluttony that construction blocked the bridge and there was no way he’d waste her pizzas, so he ate them.
One should not fail to see the fault in sending out a hungry sow for pizza pick-up.Help Support T21 with your Dollar Donation Today
