cozy in my bed.

Unless anyone else thinks

they've got what it takes.

Oh! Oh! Pick me, pick me!

I have a scary story!

This isn't the one about you getting

trapped in the petting zoo again, is it?

- 'Cause that's not scary.

- Actually...

If you look at it from my perspective...

Hey, guess what, Pinocchio,

no one cares!

Get ready to send these

jokers home, Shrek,

'cause I've got a doozy...

and it's all true!

It was a dark and stormy night...


My girlfriend kicked me out.

I don't know, something about

me being too into myself.

Blah, blah, blah, yack, yack, yack.

You? But you are so adorable.

I know!

That's what I keep telling her!

I need a good woman, Muffin Man.

Ah. I can help you, Gingy.

- How about this one?

- Aw, I dunno.

- You like her, huh?

- Nope. Weird hair.

- How about this one?

- Too skinny.

No! Don't like it!

Okay. Well, how about this one?

Yes! That's it!


She's perfect.

The girl of my dreams.

Wait! More sugar.

But that is not the recipe.

Trust me, Muffin Man,

this girl's gotta be real sweet.

I want someone

who will love me forever.

I must warn you, Gingy.

No one has ever made

cookies with this much sugar.

You are tampering with forces

far beyond your comprehension!

Just put her in the oven!

Ah ha ha ha ha!

Ah ha ha ha...


Ha ha ha ha!

Hey. I get a little privacy?

- Huh?

- Take a hike.

Oh, oui.

Oh, my gosh, I'm in love!

A cookie angel.


And you're hot too!




I guess it didn't work.

Ha ha!

Gingy, is it you?

The one I was made for?

Oh, we'll be together forever.


I can't see me

Loving nobody but you

For all my life

When you're with me

Baby, the skies'll be blue

For all my life

Me and you and you and me

No matter how they toss the dice
