Now the oldest son woke up to discover his parents dead (and the cow!), and he decided to go down to the river and drown himself
When he got to the river, he discovered a mermaid sitting on the bank
She said, “I’ve seen all and know the reason for your despair
But if you will have s..x with me five times in a row, I will restore your parents and the cow to you.” The son agreed to try, but after four times, he was simply unable to satisfy her again
So the mermaid drowned him in the river.
Next the second oldest son woke up
After discovering what had happened, he too decided to throw himself into the river
The mermaid said to him, “If you will have s..x with me ten times in a row, I will make everything right.”
And while the son tried his best (seven times!), it was not enough to satisfy the mermaid, so she drowned him in the river.
The youngest son, woke up and saw his parents dead, the dead cow in the field, and his brothers gone
He decided that life was a hopeless prospect, and he went down to the river to throw himself in.
And there he also met the Mermaid
“I have seen all that has happened, and I can make everything right if you will only have s..x with me fifteen times in a row.”
The young son replied, “Is that all? Why not twenty times in a row?”
The mermaid was somewhat taken aback by this request
Then he said, “Hell, why not twenty-five times in a row?” And even as she was reluctantly agreeing to his request, he said, “Why not THIRTY times in a row?”
Finally, she said, “Enough!! Okay, if you will have s..x with me thirty times in a row, then I will bring everybody back to perfect health.”
Then the young fellow asked, “Wait! How do I know that thirty times in a row won’t kill you like it did the cow? “
