The Story of The Three Little Pigs


Those crafty Trifecta editors are at it again, asking us for a retold story in 33 words. Here’s mine. NB: “w/” is one word unconnected with “expertise”. There’s a space.

  1. "for the love of Mike . . . " hehe

    ahem back to the devilish pigs and their bbw – schnort! I'll expect them in my BIP classes soon.

    • Think about it — he tried to huff and puff and blow their house down, but they gave him third degree burns when he tried to come down the chimney. Whose the worst abuser I ask you?

  2. This is awesome! Perfect take on the prompt. I have to say this one stumped me and I had no ideas but this is brilliant.

    • I was relieved when so many of us went for fairy tales. My other option was Chaucer, and I don't think enough people really remember that English class stuff!

  3. Sorry it took me so long to comment here. For some reason, my computer was not having it the other night. (Overuse.) Anyway, thank you for linking up to this week's Trifextra. Yours was certainly one of the funnier entries, and again I love the way you manipulated the images. BBW threw me for a minute, but then once I got it, it was made all the more enjoyable. Hope to see you back again soon.

    • Probably the reeeally hard way, since I don't have photoshop. In this case, I took a photograph of a newspaper, then dropped it into MSPaint. I copied a section of the picture that didn't have any text, then enlarged that to be my working field. used the mouse to draw (in a separate file, since paint can't do layers) the 'torn out' frame. I used My Memories Suite to fuse those two images, then I copied and pasted the fused image into Paint again. (I forget why this step was necessary. It probably wasn't.) I don't remember how I got rid of the newspaper image outside of the 'frame'. Probably just erased it. Except I do remember that when I pulled the image back into My Memories suite three times, I just inserted a random circle on top of the text so that CLASSIFIED ADS looks like it has been torn off. Then I added the text in My Memories Suite and saved and exported the image.
