Writing stuff is hard so I use a pointy pencil. Pointy, pointy, pointy, pointy, pointy, point.
Wallpaper peels and plants become dead and picture of Mr. SquarePants get annoyed and Mrs. Did you like it or did you really, really like it? Give me your completely honest opinion of how great it was. SpongeBob: [looking like he wants to insult it] Oh Patrick: Do you really think so? SpongeBob: We need to get that song on the radio! Patrick: Then let's go right now, come on! Patrick: Yeah. Did you see his ears? SpongeBob: I didn't know they could turn inside out like that.
Now, how are we going to get your record on the radio? Patrick: What record? Wind howls as SpongeBob and Patrick shiver] We just have to play your record from the top of this antenna. Patrick: Carry me? SpongeBob: Huh? Onward and upward! They get to the top of the antenna. Patrick stands on SpongeBob's face, takes out his record player and then puts it on the top of the antenna, the record player wobbles and falls off and Patrick catches it] Oh!
Hmm-- this record won't stay put. SpongeBob: [mumbling inaudibly] Patrick: Good idea. I forgot.
Everyone screams and runs around because of the song. Scooter and The Lifeguard tip the boat over] Billy: Stop! Patrick: Uh, bean dip? SpongeBob: Yes, that is important. But I was thinking about music!

Turn it up, Patrick! Get your torches! You can't be an angry mob without pitchforks! Get your cotton candy! Can't throw a riot without cotton candy! SpongeBob: [laughs] That's not an angry mob, Patrick. It's your fan club! Patrick: Fan club? We should sing them a song! Fred: Who's responsible for that song on the radio? Patrick Star, Musical Genius. Patrick plays with a guitar, while SpongeBob plays with a chainsaw and a tambourine. Just as he was about to leave, he heard the sound of the harp-girl weeping. Jack bit his lip, sighed and returned to the kitchen.
He grabbed the sickly hen and the singing harp, and began to tiptoe back out. But this time the hen gave a cackle which woke the giant, and just as Jack got out of the house he heard him calling, "Wife, wife, what have you done with my white hen and my golden harp? Jack ran as fast as he could and the giant, realizing he had been tricked, came rushing after - away from the castle and down the broad, winding road.
When he got to the beanstalk the giant was only twenty yards away when suddenly he saw Jack disappear - confused, the giant peered through the clouds and saw Jack underneath climbing down for dear life. The giant stomped his foot and roared angrily. The giant swung himself down onto the beanstalk which shook with his weight. Jack slipped, slid and climbed down the beanstalk as quickly as he could, and after him climbed the giant. As he neared the bottom, Jack called out, "Mother! Hurry, bring me an axe, bring me an axe.
Jack jumped down, got hold of the axe and began to chop away at the beanstalk. Luckily, because of all the chores he'd done over the years, he'd become quite good at chopping and it didn't take long for him to chop through enough of the beanstalk that it began to teeter. The giant felt the beanstalk shake and quiver so he stopped to see what was the matter. Then Jack gave one last big chop with the axe, and the beanstalk began to topple over. Then the giant fell down and broke his crown, and the beanstalk came toppling after. The singing harp thanked Jack for rescuing her from the giant - she had hated being locked up in the closet all day and night and wanted nothing more than to sit in the farmhouse window and sing to the birds and the butterflies in the sunshine.
With a bit of patience and his mother's help, it didn't take long for Jack to get the sickly hen back in good health and the grateful hen continued to lay a fresh golden egg every day.

Jack used the money from selling the golden eggs to buy back Old Bess, purchase seed for the spring crop and to fix up his mother's farm. He even had enough left over to invite every one of his neighbours over for a nice meal, complete with music from the singing harp. And so Jack, his mother, Old Bess, the golden harp and the white hen lived happy ever after. Printable version of this story. Top 10 Activities. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.
