THE SAW CHAINS

TEXT NOT KEYPUNCHED
ONE MIMEOGRAPHED STORY ABOUT TWO SCANDINAVIAN AMERICANS;
IN 10X13 ENVELOPE, SQ730849-21
SQ730849-21

Submitter comment: SEVERAL FAMILIAR MOTIFS APPEAR IN THIS STORY SUCH AS THE TWO FRIENDS
UNWITTINGLY TRYING TO THROW EACH OTHER OUT OF BED. THE BEAR GOING
AFTER THE PERSON WHO WAS "SUPPOSED TO BE ON HIS SIDE" IS ALSO A
COMMON IDEA. THE ENDING ALSO IS TYPICAL. MY PARENTS REMEMBER
HAVING HEARD ALMOST THE SAME ENDING ON OTHER STORIES BEFORE.
I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT IT TOOK MANY OF THE PEOPLE
I TOLD THIS STORY TO SOME TIME TO CATCH ON THAT SAW CHAINS WAS
REALLY SUPPOSED TO BE CHAIN-SAWS.
