Especially for the women

A fairy tale for the assertive woman of the 2000's:

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 shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle.

The frog hopped into the princess' lap and said,"Elegant Lady, I was once a
handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon 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 yon 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 sauteed
frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled to
herself and thought,"I don't fucking think so."
