The story of three pigs, two pancakes and one pixie with a destiny!
Short version: Give a pig a pancake, but the pic and video taken by a stranger...
Sooo... I was going to use it for my Pig/Pancake for the EPIC DUEL (which will happen someday, i'm sure, if mobius decided to get time off work ever)
But anyway, i have to tell you the epic tale of my quest for pigs, my acquisition of pancakes and my pleading and begging of someone with a camera to document this feat.
Part One: Finding Pigs
I was in a location which i believed sadly lacked pigs, being that it was a hippie festival at which no dogs were allowed. I thought that finding pigs would be entirely hopeless..
However, i saw a sign that read "Little Red Riding Hood vs. The Three Little Pigs." This mean that somewhere on the premises, there would be not just one pig, but three pigs whom i could give the gift of a pancake. After further intensive investigative work (looking at the bottom of the sign) i discovered the show-times. I went to see the show to discover if these pigs, were indeed in need of hot-cake filled goodness.
After watching their plight (in a rather complex plot in which an evil mayor frames the big bad wolf and a pretentious prince saves the day, with help of his nanny Gertrude and her long lost showroom dancer/stripper friend who happens to be little red's grandma) I realized that after all of the running, house destruction and being chased by ghosts, they needed something to eat. I being Oregon's senator, and a genially good Pixie, decided to search...
Part two: In search of Pancakes!
I searched the festival far and wide for a vender of pancakes. I found French toast, waffles and crepes, but not a single pancakes was to be found. I was sure that my poor piggy friends would have to do without, which caused me no end of sorrow... Then i heard a rumor, a whisper, and though much investigative work (which was actually investigative work this time) i found out that one booth sold pancakes on the sly before the festival began.
So sunday morning i awoke bright and early, and waited inline to get myself some pancakes...
But the man cut off the line right before me and said that they wouldn't serve me. This filled me with much woe, but i'm clever, and more importantly, i have no shame. I begged each and every member of the line in front of me for a pancake, explaining the direness of my situation. One kind soul was charitable enough to give me a pancake around 3" in diameter...
I thanked him profusely and was on my way... When suddenly another booth i'd never noticed before called out to me "you think thats a pancake? We'll show you pancakes." They proceeded to show me not one, but two blueberry pancakes, served with both maple and boysenberry syrup... I was commissioned for them to sell their pancakes by singing for potential costumers. After a half hour of this, i got the pancakes for free and orange juice (which i proceeded to happily consume.)
Part Three: The Pictures
So I sat though another showing of the play, and asked a man i don't know who had an iPhone if he'd take pictures. He proceeded to, and he took the video as well. Being that the whole process took so long, i was worried it wasn't' going to happen. But it all worked out and pulled through.
Don't forget to watch the video at the end! Enjoy it!!!!!
