Quotes: Grimmification
"...[W]ell, in the original yarns, the ugly sisters get their eyes pecked out, the witches get cooked alive, the wolf eats both Little Red Riding Hood and the grandmother, Rapunzel gets pregnant, and Sleeping Beauty is really about necrophilia. I mean, what? Even the Grimms themselves toned it all down for the next edition."
James Burke, Connections 2: One Word

I guess you think you know this story.
You don't. The real one's much more gory.
The phoney one, the one you know
Was cooked up years and years ago
And made to sound all soft and sappy
Just to keep the children happy.
Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes

Calvin: Wow, the story was different that time.
Hobbes: Do you think the townsfolk will ever find Hamster Huey's head?

Happily ever after... Ends NOW!

Tiffany Aching: And this is Fairyland?
William the Gonnagle: Aye. Ye could say it's the bit the tourists dinnae see.
