I had written this for the Fractured Fairy Tales 99-word contest (lost obviously – no surprise there), but now that the contest is over, you all get to read it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Beware the Baker
The butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker heard rumors of three little pigs that decided to live on their own instead of together like all good little pigs do. Sure enough, there were three houses, but a hungry wolf had also heard the rumors. The trio watched as he huffed and puffed, and tried to capture the little pigs, but he couldn’t. So, after the wolf left, the baker knocked on the brick house’s door and sold the little pigs three hot cross buns laced with arsenic. The butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker reported record profits.
