The three little PIGS and the big bad WOLF

The Official story is :

Mother Pig sends her three three little pigs out into the world to "seek their fortune".

The first little pig builds a house of straw, but a wolf blows it down. The encounter between wolf and pig features ringing proverbial phrases:

One day the big bad wolf came and knocked on the first little pig's door and said, "Little pig, little pig, let me come in." And the little pig answered, "No, no, I won't let you come in, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin." "Well," said the wolf, "then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in." So he huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down and the first pig ran to his brother's.

The second pig builds a house of sticks, lets his brother in, the same conversation with the wolf, who huffs and puffs the house down and the pigs run to their brother's.

The third pig builds a house of bricks and lets his brothers in. The wolf cannot huff and puff hard enough to blow the house down. He attempts to trick the three little pigs out of their house, but the pigs outsmart him at every turn. Finally, the wolf threatens to come down the chimney, whereupon the three little pigs boil a pot of water into which the wolf plunges."

But.... this is how it played at my house:

The momma made us into 3 little pigs.... yea the dumb costumes... she put on her mask and we visited the costume contest. Aha we got treats. And we will wear costumes tonight again... trick or treat.... Notice brown nose Wendy... kissing up to the wolf. TOTALLY out of character!

These three little pigs only had one refrain:

oink, grunt... whatever
