Sporking Ahoy!

I do love me a good sporking (or if you prefer, MST3King, but that's so hard to type out, plus possible copyright violations). I also love to share the sporkage. With that in mind, check out the blog of Sarah Beth Durst, author of been-on-my-TBR-list-for-freakin'-ever novel, Into the Wild and its sequel Out of the Wild. Both deal very heavily with fairy tales, apparently, and thus SBD had to do a fair amount of research.

She's been turning all that research into comic gold with sporkings of obscure (and a few not-so) fairy tales. Key quote from the sporkage of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves"
The huntsman takes Snow White to the forest and tells her to run away. He kills a wild animal instead and brings its heart to the queen who eats it with ketchup.

I added the bit with the ketchup. She doesn't use ketchup in the traditional tales, of course. She actually uses A-1 Steaksauce.


Now, if possible, I'm looking forward to my library system getting Into the Wild even more. It's in the catalog! They promised! I have a request on it!
