    I was framed

    I saw a wrong translation "I was jailed" for "I was framed". "framed" means you are set up or have a false charge when you are innocent.
    But I don't understand why he said he was framed when he ate 2 pigs and actually "Huffed and puffed and blew their house down" He actually did all the bad things, but why is he saying he is innocent?

    ex) 3 Little Pigs...
    ...The news reporters found out about the two pigs I had for dinner. They figured a sick guy going to borrow a cup of sugar didn't sound very exciting. So they jazzed up the stroy with all of that "Huff and puff and blow your house down". And they made me the Big Bad Wolf.
    That's it. The real story. I was framed. But maybe you could loan me a cup of sugar.

    Surely you understand that a lot of "bad" people (or animals, in this case) claim innocence when caught?

    Okay, I thought like you did, but I kind of doubted it, Yes, right, he is just faking it just to justify what he did. Thanks a lot!!!
