Princess Peter and the Pie Piper of Pontefract
The Slightly eccentric A to Z blogging adventure of unknown and rather unpopular Modern fairy tales
P Princess Peter and the Pie Piper of Pontefract
PRINCESS PETER was a peculiar person, and was often seen peeking at pelicans in the Planetarium pond and Pondering. It was all PART of her preparation for the prestigious Pontefract Pork pie competition. These are very personalized pork pies and have been known to contain all sorts of things as well as PORK, including Pink Psychedelic Pigeon, Possum, pomegranate, potatoes, Parrot and passion fruit but to name just a few.
You see Princess Peter was passionate about pies but every year the pie piper of Pontefract would always win the posh pewter plaque, because he had a secret ingredient that no one else knew about (Parsnip).
PRINCESS PETER thought it might POSSIBLY be pelicans or even Penguin, but of course it was not.
As the people prepared their pies an old pirate was seen parading about the towns parks approaching passers by. As it happens Princess Peter was a Part-time Policewoman and she politely asked the pirate what he was doing. And he said he had a secret ingredient for pork pies and was hoping to sell it to PEOPLE, so the PRINCESS and part-time policewoman purchased what was the last pterodactyl meat on Planet Pluto (sorry Earth).
So when the judges tasted all the personalized pork pies entered in the prestigious Pontefract Pork pie competition one pie tasted so unique that it propelled its maker to first PLACE. Yes it was PRINCESS PETER'S PORK PIE, Princess Peter had finally won the Pontefract Pork pie competition, she was so proud that she gave everyone in the town a pie. But she ran out of pies which left two PEOPLE without one. Neither PRINCESS PETER or the PIE PIPER of PONTEFRACT got to eat one of the pork pies with added pterodactyl meat, luckily the Pie Piper of Pontefract had loads of pies so they ate his instead and everyone was happy.
The next morning the town was rather peaceful, so peaceful you could hear a pin drop. Then there was a knock at Princess Peter’s door and the pie piper said everyone in the town was dead from food poisoning. It was then that Princess Peter noticed the pterodactyl meat was one hundred and fifty millions years past its sell by date. The Pie Piper of Pontefract said put the packet on the fire and no one will ever know, and then Princess Peter and the Pie Piper of Pontefract lived happily ever after, making pies but not using out of date pterodactyl meat, sold by pirates on the playing fields of Pontefract.
And the moral of the tale is never put pterodactyl in frozen Lasagne . . . . . . . .
