Once, in the bush of Alaska, three little pigs decided to leave their mother and make their way in the world.

The first little pig gathered up caribou hides to make a tepee out of.

"My house will be stronger!" proclaimed the second pig.

He gathered up those little scraggly spruce trees and built a shack.

The third pig bought a lot of duct tape to build his house with.

The other two pigs laughed.

"Your house is made of duct tape! Ha ha! It'll blow down or get torn apart!"

The third pig ignored them, and after working for several days, finished his duct tape house.

One day, the three pigs decided to go and check their trapline. As they were walking, they met a grizzly bear. After exchanging "hello's," the three pigs hurried home because they didn't want to meet any more bears!

Now, the bear had been hibernating all winter, and was extremely hungry. Those three little plump, juicy pigs were irresistible to him!

After following their scent, he found a tepee made of caribou hides. He knocked on the door.

"Please, let me in little pig."

"Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!"

"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll take down your tent!"

The grizzly took down the tepee with one swipe. The little pig ran to his brother's shack for help.

"Please, let me in little pigs," said the grizzly after he politely knocked on the door.

"Not by the hair of our chinny chin chins!"

"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll take down this shack!"

With two swipes, the shack was a pile of bad firewood. The two little pigs ran to their brother's duct tape cabin for help.

The grizzly knocked on the door.

"Please, let me in little pigs," he said.

"Not by the hairs of our chinny chin chins!"

"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll take down this cabin!"

The grizzly swiped at the door, but nothing happened, He swiped again. The door held. He clawed and chewed on the side of the cabin, but the cabin held. In his anger, he jumped on the roof and started chewing and pounding as hard as he could. The little duct tape cabin held.

Then a boat buzzed by with a tourist in it. He instantly lost interest, and went to go and try to eat a tourist.

"See brothers," said the third pig, "nothing is stronger than duct tape. Next time, build your house with duct tape."
