What am I? What am I?

An old classic :)

Stashed in: Words!, Author Unknown, Best Videos, hilarious, my boys love this!

my 3-year-old son said, "i want to punch those guys right in the face!"

Yeah, I think the lesson here is to not wish for your stuffed dolls to come to life!

Good point, be careful what you wish for ;)

...cause you just might get it!


I think that was a Pussycat Dolls song. 

As contrasted with Pinocchio which tells us we want our dreams to come true. 

I wonder if it's known, who first quoted:  "Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it."

In your Yahoo link it makes reference to a 1902 horror short story.

Unclear if that story is the origin or if it just employed an existing trope. 

i don't think this video is trying too hard to have a moral other than the obvious!  and i doubt they were relating it to "the monkey's paw."  (but i do remember reading that story in 7th grade and being blown away by it!  it felt like real grown-up literature to me: dark and meaningful.)

Wow, very cool that you read it :)  This was the first I heard of it,  I'm going to add it to my must reads ;)

Emily, I saw the video as an anti-Pinocchio. Wishing things come to life doesn't always end well!

Janill, be careful, it might make you stop wishing for things.
