Rumpelstiltskinby Brothers Grimm
“Today I bake, tomorrow I brew,
Next, the queen’s child is mine;
How good it is that no one knows
Rumpelstiltskin is my name!”
You can imagine how happy the queen was when she heard the name.
And soon after the little man entered her chamber and asked “Now, Mistress Queen, what is my name?”
She first asked “Is your name Kunz?”
“Is your name Heinz?”
“Is your name perhaps Rumpelstiltskin?”
“The devil told you, the devil told you,” the little man cried and in his rage stamped his little foot so with such force that he sank into the ground up to his waist. Then he stamped his left foot into the ground in rage and with both hands tore himself in two.
We meet Rumpelstiltskin last night when we watched Shrek Forever After 3D at SM City Marikina Cinema 1 and we really had a great time. This horrible short guy is really terrible. Do not bargain with this fellow...even for at least a day of escapade. Treasure your present being. Be contented with what you have and be careful in making deals. In the story, at the end of the day Shrek realized that his family is everything that matters. The ogre has until dawn to make Princess Fiona fall in love with him again to take back his wish in an agreement with Rumpelstiltskin. If Shrek doesn't receive true love's kiss by that time, he will cease to exist.
