Two of Three Little Pigs Weren’t Disappointed Because of Insufficient Public Relations

So a pig sits in a house of straw, and a wolf comes by.  The wolf huffs and puffs, and blows the straw house down. 

Not long afterward, a second pig sits in a house of sticks, and the same wolf comes by.  The wolf huffs and puffs, and blows the stick house down. 

What brought this disaster upon Pig 1 and Pig 2? 

Honest to goodness, it wasn’t for lack of a public-relations strategy that their houses fell down. 

It wasn’t because they didn’t have a marketing plan.

It wasn’t even because they lacked an understanding of media relations

Even a child, hearing the tale for the first time, would correctly conclude that Pigs 1 and 2 lived in houses too flimsy to withstand calamity.

From an ordinary child’s understanding of the story, one may conclude two things: first, that children are able to grasp many important lessons even at an early age; second, that some adults, blinded from pride and entitlement, lack even a child’s comprehension.
