oh...

So the Captain Underpants book about "Professor Pippy P. Poopypants" includes a reference to the story "The Pied Piper of Hamlin". natch?

ok, so Geo is on this plan where he has to read to me before I read to him... he has a series of "grade 1 and grade 2" readers beside the bed and he reads some each night. The last two nights it's been the Pied Piper...

Last night we finished it... and then I had to make up three more pages in glorious detail because he was about ready to start bawling his eyes out... geezus... DO NOT READ THIS STORY TO YOUR KIDS... :D

Town over run by rats...
Mayor makes deal with Pied Piper...
Piper boy gets rid of the rats (oh, they are all drowned in the river btw...)
Mayor renegs on deal...
Piper is pissed...
Piper KIDNAPS ALL THE CHILDREN in town...
Takes them to a mountain and put's 'em all in a cave and seals the mountain...
oh, one "lame" child doesn't get in the mountain and has to go home but "has no one to play with."

Screw the moral of the story... ... I mean, two more pages and you could have the Piper getting a big bonus and returning the kids... but noooooooooooooooooooooo!

Ok... enough of the classics... lets get back to Captain Underwear - the loveable waistband warrior of truth, justice and all that is cottony and soft. :D
