Hood Case: A Tragedy of Fur & Fury*(NOT a true story In this case, not a single actual living creature has been harmed in any way)Once upon a time there was a sweet 6-year old child who was loved by everyone who ever set eyes on her, but she was lovedmost of all by her dear grandmother. Granny sewed the girl a riding hood of bright red velvet, which suited her so well that shewould never wear anything else. Henceforth she was always known in the Woods as ‘Little Red Riding Hood.’ One day hermother said to her: Come, Little Red Riding Hood, here is a lovely sweet cake and a bottle of wine; take them to yourgrandmother. Granny is old and frail, and the sugar and the alcohol will do her some good. Granny lived in a cabin in the darkforest, half a league from the village.However, in the forest there also dwelt two wolves named Lupine and Vulpine. These two wolves had experienced a terriblewinter. They were famished, and were nearly at the point of death. These two wolves had searched the forest in vain for anymorsels to eat.Upon seeing Little Red Riding Hood walking through the forest toward Grannys house, Lupines eyes lit up and he exclaimed toVulpine I see dinner. Lets eat! Vulpine looked back at him and grinned and nodded in enthusiastic agreement. Then Lupine setoff after Little Red Riding Hood and Vulpine followed close behind him.Upon reaching Little Red Riding Hood, Lupine spoke: We are starving and we have come to devour you. Hearing this, LittleRed Riding Hood was quite reasonably terrified. So she replied, Please do not eat me, Mr. Wolf. I am on my way to see my sickgrandmother, and whats more, the Woodsman, who is the Sheriffs deputy, is on the road just behind me, and if he catches youhe will surely kill you with his very large axe. You may take my basket of food if you will let me go forth unhurt. Lupineconsidered this, then he took the food and fled into the dark woods. Vulpine followed his lead.The two starving wolves consumed all of the cake and all of the sweet intoxicating wine. However, they were ignorant of theserious cognitive effects of consuming processed, high-sugar human sweets and alcoholic drinks. So, before they knew it, the twowolves were overcome by the effects of the wine and of the sweetened cake. Still quite hungry, but now also intoxicated, theystumbled along until they came upon Grannys cabin. Then Lupine, peering into the windows and seeing no one about, decidedto enter the house in search of more food. He asked Vulpine to stand watch outside, and Vulpine agreed to do so. But in fact theinebriated Vulpine curled up in the bushes and promptly fell sound asleep.
