Ladle Rat Rotten Hut (Little Red Riding Hood)

For those who have forgotten, or those too young ever to have seen this classic piece, I reprint it here. For reasons which may be called 'meaning dissonance' the piece is actually rather hard to read, since the well-known words of the story are replaced by similar-sounding words of totally different meaning. The best way I think to enjoy the piece is to present it to someone and have them try to read it aloud -- just read the words as written and not try to gather any meaning from them. The results are pretty hilarious.
