Lying King Meets a Cookie
[a classic And-Then Children's Story]


Once upon a time, Lying King met a cookie.
AND THEN

He asked the cookie, "Who are you?"
AND THEN

The cookie said, "I am not a who. I am a what."
AND THEN

"What is a what?" asked Lying King.
AND THEN

"I am a what? What are a you?"
AND THEN

"I'm a Lying King and I never lie."
AND THEN

"Okay," said the cookie. "Then I will eat you." CHOMP!
AND THEN

"You can't eat me." said Lying King.
"I can do karate." CHOP!
AND THEN

"No you can't. You said you never lie
and everyone lies once and a while.
so you must be lying."
AND THEN

Lying King did karate —
because he had learned it at
Baby Monster School —
and the cookie crumbled.
AND THEN

Have fun,
— Josie (and dad)
