today i learned – mon 6th aug 2018

we’re getting dark today 😈 strangely enough though … the dark theme is actually disney based?! 😳

#tdil the original story of snow white and the seven dwarves had a pretty grim end πŸ˜…

it’s funny isn’t it – a lot of old nursery rhymes or stories made for children are often actually based on some pretty grim things πŸ™ˆ … a few that i’ve heard today would actually make some good horror films πŸ˜‚

in the case of snow white, however, it’s just the ending that was dramatically changed by Disney to make it more kid friendly πŸ‘πŸ»

as we all know (or should … like, there’s no excuse to not know how snow white goes πŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ), the disney story of snow white sees her poisoned by an apple 🍎 but then rescued when her prince kisses her … of course she then goes off and lives happily ever after πŸ‘ΈπŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»

that’s not how it went in the original german novel that was written by ‘the brothers grimm’ in 1812.

in their novel, snow white is still poisoned by an apple … but instead of a kiss saving her, it’s actually the prince dropping her casket that dislodges the apple from her throat, subsequently waking her from her slumber πŸ‘πŸ»

after that, things get grim πŸ˜… snow white and her prince invite all the kings and queens to their wedding, including the evil queen 😈 without knowing that it is snow white’s wedding, the evil queen accepts the invitation 😏

when she arrives, however, she is forced to wear iron slippers that have been super heated over coals 😳 these shoes obvs burn her feet quite considerably … even so, she’s forced to dance in them until she dies ☠️ #lovely

how charming is that? πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ i hear that there are similar stories when it comes to rapunzel and pinocchio … maybe we’ll do those in the future πŸ€”

let me know what you think πŸ˜‰

bye! 😊 #tdil
