I have a Swedish children's book somewhere, in which some characters are 
harassed by a big ugly monster who carries a sign around his neck that 
says "Monster".

the protagonist ends up adding two dots to that sign, turning it into 
"Mönster" (meaning "model", in the "model citizen" sense), and all ends 
well.

just imagine that story in reverse.
