Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller for October 26, 2003
Red riding hood: Gasp! Grandmother: This sweet doggy is helping me with my estate planning! Big bad wolf: Heh heh! Red: My, what big ears you have, Mister Wolf. Wolf: The better to hear opportunity knowcking with, little girl. Red: And what big eyes you have. Wolf: The better to see legal loopholes with. Red: And what big teeth you have. Wolf: The better to seize power of attorney with! Officer: Sorry, kid... it's all legal. Wolf: Now get off my property. Lucy: Sheesh! And I thought the original version was gruesome... Danae: Fiction is never as scary as real life, Lucy. When Little Red Riding Hood got to her Grandmother's house, she saw that the ailing old woman had befriended the wolf... With that, red riding hood left to find help for her feeble grandmother... But red was too late. And before her grandmother passed away, she had signed papers that left all her assets to the wolf... leaving him free to roam and prey upon other good-natured old folks.
