Okay – Australia – Prawns on a barbie. UK – Mushie peas? USA – Hot dogs? Hamburgers? Italy – Pasta of course but also Eggplant Parmigiana or anything made with eggplant.
What might happen if Goldilocks and the Three Bears were set in modern times?
Once upon a modern time, a vagrant child name Goldilocks was at a loose end one early morning. She was hungry and tired after a hard night on the street so she went looking for a kind soul who might give her a free meal. She found herself outside a smart house and rang the bell at the security gate. No reply. Frustrated she pushed the gate and found that for whatever reason it was not locked. Cautiously she made her way up the long garden path and then knocked on the door. Once again there was no reply.
This was because it was Mother’s Day and the Bear family had gone to an upmarket coffee shop for breakfast. While the littlest bear was presenting his mom with a wrapped gift and Father Bear was ordering something more exciting than cooked oats, Goldilocks was wondering how she could break into their lovely home.
The window to the dining room was a crack open and being a somewhat skinny child she managed to squeeze in. Well, there was no food set on the table but the dining area was open plan to the kitchen and there was a big shiny fridge just begging to be opened. Goldi found an array of delicious treats, cheese, ham and avocado pear. In the breadbasket, she found some fresh croissants and she quickly made herself a delicious snack. After this, she felt quite sleepy so she went upstairs and found a cosy bed. “I’ll just take a little nap and when I hear the Bears come home I’ll slip out,” she thought. But what the poor child did not realise was that the house had a silent alarm and just as she fell asleep armed response and the Bears whom they had alerted arrived and entered the house.
“Let me go in first,” said the burly guard with a gun. “We might catch the culprit red-handed.” The family followed close behind and exclaimed in horror when they saw the messy kitchen. Goldi had failed to clean up after herself. They then all ran upstairs and it was Baby Bear who found the sweet child cuddled up in his bed. Now he was a kind-hearted little fellow so he decided not to say a word.
The guard checked every other room and the Bears checked to see that nothing was missing. “We must have disturbed the intruder. No harm done!” said Mr. Bear.
The guard left and it was then that their son confessed that there was a kid in his bed. “Please can we keep her?” he begged.
The shocked parents tip-toed into the room, saw the little urchin and instantly fell in love with her. “Yes,” they said. “She is clearly a neglected street child. We will call social services and adopt her!”
And they all lived happily ever after.
Where was the most embarrassing or inappropriate place you’ve passed audible gas?
I can’t remember such an incident but it was probably in the classroom and the kids were too polite to comment!
