“I find it hard to believe that bears made porridge and the only thing wrong with it was the temperature”

In the fairy tale of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” the bears made porridge that Goldilocks ate. This comment was posted on X/Twitter by Adam on March 22, 2021:

Wikipedia: Goldilocks and the Three Bears
“Goldilocks and the Three Bears” is a 19th-century English fairy tale of which three versions exist. The original version of the tale tells of an impudent old woman who enters the forest home of three anthropomorphic bachelor bears while they are away. She eats some of their porridge, sits down on one of their chairs, breaks it, and sleeps in one of their beds. When the bears return and discover her, she wakes up, jumps out of the window, and is never seen again. The second version replaces the old woman with a young, naive, blond-haired girl named Goldilocks, and the third and by far best-known version replaces the bachelor trio with a family of three. The story has elicited various interpretations and has been adapted to film, opera, and other media. “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” is one of the most popular fairy tales in the English language.
