    6. Three Thirsty Brothers Three thick-skulled thoughtless thirsty brothers needed something to quench their thirst. The threesome did the unthinkable resorting to thievery not thinking thrice if this was really the thriftiest thing to do.

We ought to give all of you the thumb and throw you out of the house. Then their father threw in his two cents worth. Ive stuck with you through thick and thin!
