S.L.: Hello, kiddies! Today I'd like to tell you the story I call, "The Princess and the Pig."

(SFX: Music Box)

S.L.: Once upon a time, a beautiful princess was walking through the forest near the castle of her father, the king, when all of a sudden, she saw a forlorn little pig sitting on a flat rock.

She leaned over, picked up the sad piggy, and gave it a big kiss.

Instantly, in place of the pig, there appeared a handsome young prince.

Without a second thought, the princess grabbed the prince by the hand, and rushed him to the castle, where she bade her father's Prime Minister to marry them.

After the usual preliminaries, the Prime Minister quickly got to the end of the ceremony and asked, "Do you, beautiful princess, take this man to be your lawful wedded husband?" "I do," said the princess.

"And do you," said the Prime Minister to the young man, "take this woman to be your lawful wedded wife?"

"Oink," said the prince.

B: Thank you, Story Lady. Be with us next time, boys and girls, when The Story Lady tells us about the time her ponytail got caught in a mop squeezer.
