Frog Prince

Once upon a time, in a land far away, a beautiful,
independent, self-assured princess happened upon a
frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on
the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow
near her castle.

The frog hopped into the princess' lap and said:
Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince, until an
evil witch cast a spell upon me. One kiss from you,
however, and I will turn back into the dapper, young
prince that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry
and setup housekeeping in yon castle with my mother,
where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes,
bear my children, and forever feel grateful
and happy doing so.

That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on a
repast of lightly sauteed froglegs, seasoned in a white
wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled to herself and
thought: I don't fucking think so.
