Foggy Report 26 Mar 2008 18:55

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 set up house in your castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, walk my dog and attend to my every need.
Forever you will feel grateful and happy doing so"

That night as the princess dined sumptuously on lightly sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she sipped he chilled crisp wine, chuckled and thought to herself:

I don't ******* think so.
