Hans was in love with a girl named Gretel. They saw each other every day and every time Gretel gave Hans a gift. Hans was however not that smart, so he mishandled the gifts. Gretel gave Hans a needle and he stuck it in a hay. His mother told him that it was going to be better to stick it through his sleeve. And so he did the next day.
