When your memes show up in real life I saw this on ifunny about 1 2 years ago and thought it was hilarious Wellturns out it was a real book I picked up this copy in a little hole in a wall used bookstore Lucky findThis little novella transverses the most common fairytales and throws a completely new spin on them A completely and utterly politically correct spin on them Cinderella arrived She was dressed in a clinging gown woven of silk stolen from unsuspecting silk worms Her hair was festooned with pearls plundered from hard working defenseless oysters And on her feet dangerous though it may seem she wore slippers made of finely cut crystal The amount of sass condensed in this book is overwhelming Red Riding Hood screamed not out of alarm at the wolf s apparent tendency toward cross dressing but because of his willful invasion of her personal space Hilarious in the extreme My mother sister and I took turns reading these stories out loud on a car ride We had several moments where we literally could not speak because we were laughing so hard This was certainly a fresh take on some old stories One day an invitation arrived at their house The prince was celebrating his exploitation of the dispossessed and marginalized peasantry by throwing a fancy dress ball YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading
