        Three men in a tub,

        And who do you think they be?

        The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,

        And all of them out to sea.

    Can't say I've ever heard of that one, with or without the samurai, but I only know the 'big' fairy tales.  Like the ones that got turned into Disney films, and maybe a few more.  And the Princess Bride, of course.

    But hey, fairy tales come from all sorts of different countries and regions, so knowing all of them from everywhere would be... inconceivable.
