Something to ponder on as you wander on


Some liars are born that way, some are self-made; but the really great ones are elected to Congress…

WHAT THE ??

WHAT THE ???………..
Hey,, what’s going on here?…Where’s Hillary Dillary
and that damn village of hers,, where’s the PTA, the PDF,,
the HTML,, where’s MADD?…Haven’t they been watching?...
Have they forgotten?.. Aren’t they suppose to be censoring
all things apon this earth to protect the youth of our nation
and the unborn?...How can they let this go on?…

It was just the other day,, yes it was Tuesday,, X-mas day
as a matter of fact,, if its any of your bees wax…Anyway,,
I was over at my Aunt Berthas’ house doing the
“merry-how-are-you-here’s-you-gift-give-me-mine-goodbye”
ritual for this time of year…Aunt Bertha was fortunately the last
spin on my merry-go-round ride of the night before I could
head home to put my own yule log to bed,, if you catch my drift…
Anyway…Aunt Bertha has a couple of kids,, their kinda of young,,
about 5 or 6 yrs old I suppose,, and this year before I could
escape it was decided (by Aunt Bertha of course) that I should
read them some fairy tales before they went to bed…
She got an old book from out of her den called “Mother Goose”…
A harmless enough looking book,, it had lots of cute drawings
and cartoons in it,, so I thought it would be kinda of fun and easy
to read it to them…Besides the faster they went to bed the
faster I could get out of there…

I started reading some of the stories in that book and I was
appalled…These were horrifying stories,, certainly not something
that should be read to innocent children who play
Halo on the X-Box…Ghastly,, mean stories,, of death and
witched witches…There was one story in there that had an
egg shaped guy jump off a wall and committed suicide…
Is that any kind of story to tell young children?...Then in the story
a bunch of soldiers came by and ate him…What kind of sick mind
makes up things like that?…Another story had these two kids
just walking along in the woods and then an evil witch captured
them and put the kids in an oven…
What the??...
There were stories in there about cooks putting live birds in pies,,
and a poor welfare mother with lots and lots of kids,, so many she
didn’t know what to do with them,, she just let them run around
in old shoes,, another story had a guy named Jack setting fire to
everything with a candle…It was terrible… Well I just couldn’t
bring myself to read those stories to my Aunt Berthas’ kids…
It was horrible...
Why doesn’t somebody do something about these stories,,
shouldn’t they all be gathered up and burnt,, or at least
put a warning on them saying “for adults only

As soon as I get enough money scraped together I’m going to
buy a stamp and mail a letter to Hillary Dillary and tell her
about this,, and as soon as she’s President I’m sure she’ll
make it a top priority…
Cuz after all it takes a village…….............

You mean to tell me that someone actually let you read stories to their kids?!?!?!

to Catz:
OK,, I lied,, I actually stole clips from You-Tube and read that to them....the result was the same,, only the blood and guts parts where much more realistic,, and we could replay them a lot...
no word from Hillary Dillary yet...

I don't want to give you bad dreams, sweetie, but those were the "cleaned up" versions! The originals were even worse. Our ancestors really wanted to get their "sitting on a damn cold earthen packed floor and now I got hemorrhoids so this better be full of sex and violence" worth. Ye bards of old really didn't like to run from angry mobs much, so they tended to satisfy their customers. Fairytales, like fairies, were pretty brutal! But, then, so was life... The Brothers Grimm were the first to start cleaning up fairytales for general publication (being PC started way earlier than we tend to think!) and took all the good parts out.

Yes i know,, today wicked Fairie Tales are called commercials.. and most tall tales are told by politicals...........

did you only post that 'cause you knew I wouldn't know what you were talking about? WABAC? I'm a little afraid to ask...but what's that? I shall check back later for the answer. Since that cat picture I think I can handle just about anything here.
