"...A prince is looking for a bride. A woman appears at the gate of his castle who claims to be the real deal but she looks, well, pretty disheveled. Old ma knows how to tell the difference, and so places a pea under the pretending princess’ twenty mattress bed. When the parvenu wakes up she whines incessantly about having slept so poorly because there was something amiss with the bed and BINGO everyone knows she’s the real deal. The prince marries his newly authenticated bride. The pea is put in a museum."
above. What do you think?
I am not putting a pea under my mattress.
