Once upon a time in a land far away a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shore of an unpolluted pond in the verdant meadow near her castle.

The frog hopped into the princess' lap and said, "Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince until a wicked witch cast a spell on me.

One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper young prince that I am; and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children and forever feel grateful and happy doing so."

That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on a repast of lightly sautéed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled and thought to herself: I don't frigging think so!

Okay, I know everyone's already seen that, but it amuses me every time and sharing it seemed like a good way to start the day..
