259-Egyptian Folklore: Butter

This story has a little bit of everything: genies, sorcerers, insecure kings, true love (with two practice marriages beforehand that the king insists do not count don't count those), and, of course, dancing houseplants.

256-Indian Folklore: Tiger Mom

A story about why you shouldn't give your children to the first person who shows up at your door who's definitely not a tiger what are you talking about if anything they're so human that you might be the tiger. Ever thought of that? That you might be a tiger? Hm. Something to consider before you go around accusing people (who are definitely people!) of being tigers (which they're not!)

253B-Monkey King: The Good Guys

Monkey has been fired. Sandy has been captured. Pigsy is fleeing in terror, and the monk is about to be cut to pieces by a room full of angry guys. Things are not going well.
