When Grandpa Was A Boy, Were There Any Dinosaurs?

Ladle Rat Rotten Hut

1956: “Wants pawn term,” in Howard Chace’s version of “Little Red Riding Hood”, there was a “ladle gull” who wore a “putty ladle rat cluck” with a “ladle rat hut”. One morning, the little girl’s mother sent her to her grandmother’s cottage “honor udder site offer florist”. On her way through the forest, “Ladle Rat Rotten Hut” met an enormous wolf and told him she was going to visit her “groin-murder”.

The “anomalous woof” took a “shirt court” and got to the “cordage” first. In a flash, the beast leaped on the poor old woman and gobbled her up – “lipped honor pore oil worming, an garbled erupt”, in Chace’s American homophonic version. Then the “wicket woof” put on the grandmother’s “nut cup an gnat-gun” and “curdle dope inner bet”. When Little Red Riding Hood “a raft attar cordage”, she mistook the wolf, curled up in bed, dressed in a nightcap and nightgown, for her “groin-murder”.

“O, Grammar! Water bag icer gut!” she said.

“O, Grammar, water bag noise!”

Silly “ladle gull”! “Inner flesh”, the “woof lipped own pore Ladle Rat Rotten Hut an garbled erupt”.

And the moral of the story, since all “furry tells” have a “mural”, is: “Yonder nor sorghum stenches shut ladle gulls stopper torque wet strainers.” (“Under no circumstances should little girls stop to talk with strangers.”)
