Now in society that would not be funny, but for the purposes of the musical in, which it was presented as a comedic bit with fireworks and music, this bit was funny. In The Frog, there are also sexual comedy. The bit that captured my attention was when Xanthias is suddenly eager to enter the club, for lack of a better term, because there are dancing girls in the building. This is so typical
The short story,”Rikki-tikki-tavi” by Rupyard Kipling, shows how family is most important, where a curious, clever mongoose fights an evil pair of cobras who want to kill Rikki’s new family. Firstly, we can tell that RIkki-tikki is given the human traits of bravery and curiosity. This is shown when,”he is eaten from head to tail with curiosity.” Later in the story, Rikki-tikki goes and explores the garden out of curiosity, where he meets Darzee, Darzee’s wife, Nag, and Nagaina.
In the opening of Jeff the killer’s story readers are thrown into a scene where Jeff is lurking in the shadows of a child’s room ready to kill him.

The chickens had begun to fight after witnessing Rosaura and Tita argument. The author added magical elements to a simple fight, turning it into a hurricane. Magical Realism: “While Tita was singing, the bean liquor was boiling madly. The beans allowed the liquid in which they were floating to penetrate them; they swelled until they were about to burst” (Esquivel 366).

Not knowing the snake’s whereabouts Sykes walks in and gets bitten.
A blazing fire, sending sparks of red, orange, yellow, white, blue over the dark and still sky? The comparisons and descriptions are endless, but some stand out more vividly in our memories. In “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” by Washington Irving, the beautiful Katrina van Tassel, daughter of the wealthy van Tassel family, is desired by nearly every man in Sleepy Hollow. Among these are the scrawny schoolmaster Ichabod Crane and the burly prankster Brom Bones, The short story follows Ichabod and Brom in the pursuit of Katrina, to the van Tassel dinner
When she has an idea, you better say your farewells because you never know what might happen. Her idea of fun is walking on top of falling-in roofs, driving gators through muddy ditches, trying to shoot birds with a kids bow and arrow, and trying to make our own torches drenched in wasp raid. Very few of our ideas are smart and if our parents knew what we were doing at the time, we would be in an enormous amount of trouble. You see, my life has changed so much in the past few years that we are starting to think alike and have the same crazy and reckless ideas. We have many funny stories to tell our summers together, and one of my favorite ones was on a rainy day last spring.
As she watches a little boy smash butterflies on the wall with a hammer, she sees a caterpillar crawling by. She must have known what was coming next because she picks the caterpillar up and runs away. Once in another room, she comes across a
Dillard’s purpose is to inform the reader of how to develop a larger range of our vision in order to get new perspectives on how to live life. She introduces logos to get to ethos. Dillard uses many interesting facts like in “Fixed”, “The female will mate with and devour up to seven males”(Dillard 60) and “If a bee is heavy with honey, the wasp drinks by licking the tongue of her unfortunate victim”(Dillard 60). The facts prove that there are intricate details about everything. The authors desired outcome is to make people want to open their minds and look more abstractly in their lives.

Me: “What does that have to do alongside anything?” Therapist Dan: “I’m the expert. Simply indulge me.” Me: “She aggravated me for the reason that she continually leapt on top of my bed nightly plus the aforementioned stunned me. On one occasion I placed her cranium within a toy football helmet of the Rams and took a Polaroid picture of it.”
