The Three Little Pigs

This is a true story, proving how fascinating the mind of a six year old is. They think so logically.

A teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class. She came to the part of the story where first pig was trying to gather the building materials for his home.

She read 'and so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said: 'Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?'

The teacher paused then asked the class: 'And what do you think the man said?'

One little boy raised his hand and said very matter-of-factly, 'I think the man would have said, - 'Well, I'll be damned!! A talking pig!'

From Dougie Boy.


  1. A similar story that did the rounds amongst us teaching assistants was - after the bit 'and he huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down', a 4/5/6 year old boy(ages varied, but it was ALWAYS a boy) was heard to comment 'Well the b*****d.

  2. Oh no, Petty! Not a lad of such tender years. I'm shocked, shocked!
