If you really needed some straw there's always the Jamey Wrights and Ron Villones of the world.
But the three little pigs have looked at the bricks and their checkbook and decided they can only afford to make bricks themselves instead of buying bricks that someone else made. Then, they only had enough to get sticks, which is better than the open air and the strawhouse that they lived in before. Not much better, and certainly not strong enough to withstand the wolf (playoffs), but a little stronger than the one they had before. But those bricks can be hard to come by, and they're just learning how to make them, so for now, its sticks, straw or open air.
