The Princess and The Frog

(This is very old, but when someone emailed it to me recently it still made me giggle)

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 housekeeping in your 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 lightly sauteed frog legs
Seasoned in a white wine& cream sauce,
She chuckled and thought to herself:
"I don't freakin think so."
