"older sister: cinderella, wash the floor.
other older sister: yeah, wash it, and then re-wax it.
(sisters leave for the ball)
cinderella: wash, wax, phew.
(fairy godmother appears)
fairy godmother: phew, ammonia. that strips wax. but use Mr Clean with no ammonia. Mr Clean gets the dirt but leaves the wax shining and you get a shine.

"In Our Time there was once a liddell girl who set out to find the fairy tale- for she had heard everywhere that the fairy tale had become lost. Indeed, some people said that the fairy tale had been dead for some time. Supposedly it was lying buried Somewhere, perhaps in a watery grave.

Even if one should survive to a bull market, that was not the fairy tale: the calf must be enlightened.’
An old horse stood on the street. He was going to be taken to the laughter-house- for he had served his time. The butcher sat in the levee and drank.
‘He won’t know either,’ the girl thought, ‘but i’ll ask anyway since he’s an old horse and must certainly know a great deal.’ And e asked the bus driver.

And it let the gurl&th’rest of the criminal court in
