This story is The Merry Wives from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang
This story is about 3 wives who each boast about how stupid their husbands are. When the price of a pint goes up, they decide to have a contest to see who has the stupidest husband. The winner would be able to drink free from then on. They then proceed to play tricks on each of their husbands. Who will turn out to be the stupidest?
This fairy tale is Rated G. It’s funny, although as a husband I am horribly offended.
