Alice

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

'Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!'

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One two! One two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

'And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

The Fox and the Grapes
An Aesop's Fable

One hot summer's day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch. "Just the thing to quench my thirst," quoth he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: "I am sure they are sour."

It is easy to despise what you cannot get

Here goes:

Once upon a time there was a lady. She wanted to have a baby. And she did. But she was sad, because the baby had brown hair. "I wanted a blond!" she screamed, throwing the baby of a cliff.

She then had another baby. It had red hair. "I wanted a blond!" she shouted, again throwing her off the cliff.

The days past, and many a child was thrown off a cliff. Then, the lady reached the age of 40. "I'm too old now! I'll never have a blonde baby!" She lived the rest of her life in depression.

Oh, and she was put in prison for throwing babies of cliffs.

THE END!

Do non-Ariel mermaids exist anymore? They do, here in the Fairy Tales & Fables Spot!
This is a simple request I ask of fellow fans of the fairy tales & fables spot: if you can, try to refrain from bombarding this spot with Disney-related links, videos, and images and instead expand what you consider the 'classic' fairytales and fables. While it is true that movies do rely as much on fairytales and fables as books of yore did, the commercialization of Disney's versions of these classic tales overwhelm the vibrant worlds of Mother Goose, Aesop's Fables, and Hans Christian Andersen. I wonder how many children are unaware that the traditional Little Mermaid had our fishy protagonist dying in the end as her prince married another, as opposed to marrying him herself and living happily ever after? While it is much in the tradition of fairytales and fables to evolve beyond their original form, I request that we keep the Fairytales & Fables Spot as literature-based as we can. That's not to say comparisons between the many incarnations of fairytales are not welcomed. In fact, they will be greeted heartedly. But upload your Disney images, videos, and links in the Disney spot. Share the classics here. Thanks.
