T-Rex: Once upon a time there was a man who bragged to a king that his daughter could spin straw into gold. This absurd claim was entirely without merit.
Narrator: THE STORY OF RUMPELSTILTSKIN Narrator: as told in the 19th century
T-Rex: The king locked the girl in a room filled with straw and said if she didn't spin it all into gold, he'd murder her. Kings, right? The girl was doomed, but then a small man appeared and offered to accomplish this impossible task for a small fee! And incredibly, he did. The next morning, the king demanded the girl repeat the trick, and anyway long story short the girl ended up deeply in debt to the nice man who kept helping her.
T-Rex: Since he was nice, he said he'd forgive the debt if she guessed his name! AND he gave her infinite guesses. Utahraptor: Super nice!
T-Rex: The girl guessed name after name but none were correct. Finally her friend spied on the man, discovered his real name, and told the girl. When the girl said "Your name is Rumpelstiltskin!", the man was FURIOUS. He screamed "The devil told you that!!" over and over.
T-Rex: Then in a rage he stomped his right foot deep into the ground, burying it up to his waist. Then he grabbed his left foot with both hands, and screaming, tore himself in two, right up the middle. THE END. T-Rex: THE MORAL: NIGHTMARES WALK AMONG US
