Once upon a time ...

Once apon a time, in a coreign fountry, there lived a geautiful birl whose name was Rindercella. Now, Rindercella lived with her mugly other and her two sad blisters.

And in this same coreign fountry, there was a prandsom hince. This prandsom hince was going to have a bancy fall, and he'd invited people from riles amound, especially the pich reople. Rindercella's mugly other and her two sad blisters went out to buy some drancy fesses to wear to this bancy fall, but Rindercella could not go because all she had to wear were some old rirty dags.

Finally, the night of the bancy fall arrived and Rindercella couldn't go. So she just cat down and scried. All at once there appeared before her, her merry fodgither. And she touched her with her wagic mand ... and there appeared before her, a cig boach and hix white sorces to take her to the bancy fall. But now she said to Rindercella, "Rindercella, you must be home before nidmight, or I'll purn you into a tumpkin!"

When Rindercella arrived at the bancy fall, the prandsom hince met her at the door because he had been watchin' behind a widden hindow. And Rindercella and the prandsom hince nanced all dight until nidmight...and they lell in fove. And finally, the mid clock strucknight. And Rindercella staced down the rairs, and just as she beached the rottom, she slopped her dripper!

The next day, the prandsom hince went all over the coreign fountry looking for the geautiful birl who had slopped her dripper. Finally he came to Rindercella's house. He tried it on Rindercella's mugly other ... and it fidn't dit. Then he tried it on her two sigly usters ... and it fidn't dit. Then he tried it on Rindercella ... and it fid dit. It was just the sight rize!

So they were married and lived heverly after happers. Now, the storal of the mory is this: If you ever go to a bancy fall and want to have a pransom hince loll in fove with you, don't forget to slop your dripper!

And then there's the story of the Pee Thrigs, ... but that's another story.

This was a Hee Haw gag from mid-century; my dad used to tell us the story this way when we were kids
