About your recent joke, I thought I would show you how Little Red
Riding Hood SHOULD be re-written...

The Little Girl and the Wolf

ONE aftemoon a big wolf waited in a dark forest for a little girl to
come along carrying a basket of food to her grandmother. Finally a
little girl did come along and she was carrying a basket of food.

"Are you carrying that basket to your grandmother?" asked the wolf.
The little girl said yes, she was. So the wolf asked her where her
grandmother lived and the little girl told him and he disappeared
into the wood.

When the little girl opened the door of her grandmother's house she
saw that there was somebody in bed with a nightcap and nightgown on.
She had approached no nearer than twenty-five feet from the bed when
she saw that it was not her grandmother but the wolf, for even in a
nightcap a wolf does not look any more like your grandmother than the
Metro-Goldwyn lion looks like Calvin Coolidge. So the little girl
took an automatic out of her basket and shot the wolf dead.

Moral: It is not so easy to fool little girls nowadays as it used to

"They say poverty builds character -and so it does. But it's not the
kind of character _I_ like!"
