What is the genre of The Three Little Pigs?

In the strict definitions of traditional literature, it would be a fable (a story with a moral lesson).

All of the animal characters act like people, which teaches a lesson to be passed on through generations. It is a folk tale, not a fairy tale, because there is no magic.

It can also be considered a "nursery rhyme tale" for the rhyming conversation of the Wolf and pigs when he wants them to let him eat them:

Wolf: "Little pig, little pig, let me in."

Pig: "Not by the hair of my chinny-chinny-chin."

Wolf : Then I'll huff...and I'll puff... and I'll blow your house in!"

How many pigs would serve 50 people at a roast?

You want 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of meat per person. So 75 pounds of meat should be enough for 50 people. If you're buying a whole hog I would recommend getting one about 125 pounds on the hoof.

What is the main idea of The Three Little Pigs?

I think its 'a stronger attitude can help you in life' and in the story is 'a stronger house can help you survive.'

The main idea is about the 3rd pig being smarter and more industrious than the other two pigs by building a house out of bricks, so the Big Bad Wolf cannot blow the house away.

Who is involved in the story The Three Little Pigs?

The protagonists are three anthropomorphic pigs, able to talk and use tools, each of which builds his own house. The antagonist is the Big Bad Wolf, also anthropomorphic and with a unnaturally strong set of lungs.

The cautionary tale has each of the three pigs building a house from a different material, with the more durable houses taking the most effort to build. The wolf wishes to eat the pigs, and is able to "huff and puff" and expel air with such force that he "blows the houses down" that are made of straw (first pig) and sticks (second pig). However, the third pig has expended the effort to build a brick house, which can withstand the powerful exhalations of the wolf. The only weak point is the open chimney - but when the wolf tries to use it to enter, he falls into a cooking pot in the fireplace.

In some versions of the story, the first two pigs are eaten by the wolf when their structures fail catastrophically. In others, they both flee to the safety of the third pig's house. In some versions of the story, the wolf survives his scalding and never threatens the pigs again.

The basic moral of the tale is to avoid half-hearted enterprises -- do something well, even if it requires greater effort. Also, the lesson that effort expended today can have great value tomorrow.

How does The Three Little Pigs go?

As with many nursery ryhmes the The Little Pigs story is a cautionary tale usually considered too frightening for smaller children. Choice of construction materials is key in this story. The first Little Pig carelessly builds his home out of straw. The first big blow from the Wolf knocks it down and he flees for his life to the second Little Pig's house of sticks. Same story with the stick house. A little huffing and puffing and the stick house comes down. Pig 1 and 2 run to Pig 3's house of bricks. Pig 3 took much longer to build his house of bricks. He didn't have time to play around as Pig 1 and 2 did after their faulty construction jobs. He was hardworking and determined and it payed off in the end. So the Wolf dined on something other than pork and Pigs 1 and 2 learned a hard lesson in responsiblity and the benefits of hard work.

If you have killed three black bees in your house within the last three weeks does this indicate you could have a nest inside your house?

No it doesn't mean you have a nest in your house. Bees, wasps and hornets make their nests outside. They could be in the walls, or if you have windows or a door open then they could have just flown in. I get bees and wasps in my house off and on simply because one of my doors is open when I'm gardening. Check around the outter perimeter of your house to see if you can see a hive of any sort. If they are bees (generally yellow with dark brown strips) then call a beekeeper. Bees are getting to be a rarity for some reason so don't kill them! Hornets and Wasps have elongated bodies (may have stripes depending on the region you are in). You will have to get an exterminator.
