Threes Company

I can't shake the feeling that the expression third times the charm was derived from the story of Goldie Locks and the three bears although it might not make since in the original version after she eats the perfect bowl of pourage and finds the perfect bed she is ripped apart by the three bears.

Moral of the story don't stick around in a crime scene longer than absolutely necessary.

Or don't eat a bear's porridge. But what kind of stupid bear would leave their hot porridge sitting out on the table and then step out for a bit?

Well, they need some salt with their porridge too. Guess that's what the bear stepped out for.
