Once upon a time, there lived a boy and his younger sister.
One night, their evil parents left them in a forest, and the boy and sister wandered about hand in hand because they were just kids and didn’t know how to get back home.
They came upon a house made of chocolate and candy and were lured inside because they were just kids and hungry and locked up by a witch who lived in it.
But, they were smart kids. They outwitted the poor old witch, shoved her into the oven and baked her at 450˚ Fahrenheit.
They took the witch’s treasure because they were just kids and didn’t know stealing was a felony and lived happily ever after until they grew up and weren’t kids anymore.
