Three Little Pigs (Literature)

"Or you'll huff and puff and burn my house down?"

This is a tale of violent and fatal retribution meted out on those so lazy or unwise as to build their security on ephemera. So, naturally, it is a popular story for very young children. The Big Bad Wolf rasps out, "Little pig, little pig, let me come in." From behind their doors, each complacent pig taunts, "Not by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin." The wolf gets huffy, and, uh, huffs, "Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house down." Only the pig with the brick house survives. Veronica, hairless of chin, risks her combustible house when she twists a warped folktale for a wolfish Weevil.
