BC: So he chose Little Superego's plan, and decided to approach the gentleman about the issue kindly. Big Bad Ego said, "Excuse me kind sir, I know you are new here, but you see. I am Big Bad Ego and I used to have the best house around, but now yours is the best in town. I could huff, and puff, and blow your house down, but instead I won't. I have come to ask you politely to leave the town." The little pig said, "I am very sorry to cause you any trouble Big Bad Ego, I will move out of town, thank you for not blowing my beautiful house down.
1: We all know the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, this is the alternate story, called the Big Bad Ego. | Big Bad Ego was a very handsome fellow. He lived in a beautiful forest. He had built his house from only the finest logs around. He had by far the best house in town.
2: As the animals would walk by they would always gaze in astoundment, at the beautiful log cabin of the Big Bad Ego.
3: They would gather at his sidewalk, and take pictures, what a beautiful house it was. No one in town had a house as nice as his, and oh boy was the Big Bad Ego proud, to have such a jealous crowd.
4: One day Big Bad Ego was off to work. With a smirk on his face he started on his way, well-dressed, and pleasantly behaved.
5: He made it about four blocks down, and something immediately had caught his attention. It appeared to be a new neighbor! There was a crowd surrounding his home, so much that he couldn't even see it. So he rushed to see what was going on.
6: Well what do you know? He had a magnificent house, four stories tall, made of even finer wood and logs! This made Big Bad Ego jealous, and angry, that he was no longer the owner of the best house around.
7: So he gathered with his friends, medium id and little superego, to discuss what he had seen. He said, "Friends! You will not believe what I have seen! A new neighbor to the town, he has the best house around!" "No way! No way!" his friends said."Well what shall we do?" said Big Bad Ego?
8: And to his surprise, both of his friends gave very different answers! Medium Id replied urgently, "This is a grave problem! A grave problem indeed! You must, huff, and puff, and blow that house down, and then you will have the best house around!" But Little Superego replied cautiously, "No! Violence is never the solution! Big Bad Ego should kindly ask the gentleman to leave the town, for then he will surely have the best house around!"
9: Big Bad Ego was quite confused at what he should do. He wanted to have the best and most beautiful house here in town, for it was what made him feel successful like a King and Crown. But he soon realized that if he huffed, and puffed, and blew that house down, he would surely be called a clown.
