I’ve always had a fondness for communal stories—the stories so old or common that it’s impossible to find any one “original” version, and every person you ask is certain their version is the right one. Listening to a folk tale is the media equivalent of a home cooked meal: even if the technical skill would be better at an expensive restaurant, no restaurant will ever have the personality of someone’s chicken parmesan, “just like Mom used to make”.
