Plot

The short begins with a man who had three sons; the first son was handsome and talented, and he could play the fiddle with his feet. The old man knows him to make a fortune someday. The second son was strong and wise, and he could recite clever verse while holding huge weights above his head. The old man knows him to be famous someday. The third son was not at all like his brothers, and he was a dullard and becomes lazy while getting his lederhosen all wet. When the old man tells his son to get out of the rain and said that he will never amount to a hill of beans, the third son asks who wants to be a hill of beans.

The next day, the old man decides that his sons need to go out into the world and make their fortunes, and he gives them some sour cheese, stale bread and a cookie and waves them goodbye. The first son stopped under a shady tree to have his midday meal. When the funny little man asks the first son to share his meal with him, the first son refuses, and he needs this food to keep up his strength so he could play the fiddle with his feet. Later, the second son stopped under the tree to have his midday meal. When the funny little man returns, the second son refuses, and he needs this food to keep up his strength so he could hold heavy weights over his head while reciting clever verse. Soon, the third son came up to the tree as a spot to rest, and he has his midday meal. When the funny little man returns with a bandaged nose, the third son gives him the food, and he is not crazy enough to eat it. When the funny little man gives the third son an axe and told him to cut down the tree, he scurried back home. So the dullard did as the funny little man told him and chopped down the tree, and inside the tree was a golden goose.

The third son took the goose straight to the village, and he met a wealthy merchant who wishes to buy a feather from the golden goose and asks to give him a nickel. When the merchant reaches down to pluck a feather from the golden goose, he got stuck to it, and couldn't let go. The third son explains that some things happen in fairy tales. So the both had to continue, and they met a robber who waved his sword and tries to steal the golden goose. When the robber pushed the merchant to get to the goose, he got stuck to him, and the third son went along with them. When the three get to the village, the sheriff sees the robber, and he also got stuck to him. So it continued until one hour later, two hundred and six people were stuck behind the golden goose. Now it happened that the king had a daughter who never laughed. When the princess looks out of the castle and sees the people stuck behind the goose, she started to laugh.

Upon seeing the third son, the king told him to make his daughter laugh and has to marry her; the third son explains that the honeymoon suite gets a little crowded, and the king calls the castle wise man to solve the problem with seventeen magic words. After the problem was solved, the third son marries the princess, but surely lived happily ever after. But such wasn't the csse that the princess hits the third son in the head with a rolling pin. Because of the dratted goose, the third son is henpecked for the rest of his life, and the goose is for the birds. If the readers meet a funny little man with a long beard and a crooked nose, they refuse to share his meal with him, or the goose will be cooked. At this point, the short abruptly ends.
