Once upon a time, beyond the seven seas, there lived a princess who badly wanted to marry a prince. One day, when she was walking in the garden, she saw a frog. Without thinking twice (because she remembered the stories her mom read her for goodnight), she took the frog in her arms.
My dear prince – she said to it – your cruel fate is coming to an end. My love will save you.
And she carried the frog to her castle. She kissed it and… nothing happened.
But the courageous princess didn’t lose heart.
Honey – she said showering the frog with kisses – what a cruel witch put such a strong spell on you? You’re ugly as hell but I see beauty in your eyes. I will always love you!
But the princess was determined and wasn’t going to give up. “No surrender” that was her life motto.
I know what I will do – said the princess – I will give you an ultimate proof of my love.
And the princess stripped naked and did a fine belly dance before the perplexed frog.
Still the frog remained a frog.
You scoundrel! – cried the princess and in her fury she threw the frog against the wall.
You fool – moaned the frog as it was giving its last breath – Can’t you see I’m just a fucking frog?
