Disney Lied....

I think I mentioned in some previous post that our building management subscribes to daily news video feeds in each of the elevators. Each corner contains a small monitor that gives me something to stare at during the daily triskaidekaphobic trip to the 16th (15th) floor. Usually I learn something relevant about the weather in Riga, Latvia, the cost of a rickshaw ride in Bangladesh, or who got voted off American Idol this week.

Today I learned that historians have determined that Cinderella's slipper was probably made from fur, and not glass as was previously reported in the Happily Ever After News Tribune.

Well, damn.

I have QUESTIONS about this, people! This is upsetting! First off, when the PETA peeps get wind of this, are they going to go out and throw fake blood on pre-schoolers at Hollywood Video?

Are we going to further learn that the fabled pumpkin really was an eggplant?

Other fairy tales are now left wide open for questioning. Jack and the Corn Stalk? What about all the rumors of the additional dwarves known as Blinky, Stinky, and Moe? What if Rapunzel had Jessica Simpson extensions?

And who are these historians anyway? Can't they find something just a titch more productive to think about? "Verre" vs "Vair" (French for glass and fur) isn't exactly rocket science. I looked it up in two minutes on Wikipedia, for cryin' out loud. Probably this was study funded by the Latvian government.

One thing I am sure of, with no further research required, is that if Cinderella had fur slippers, she absolutely positively DID NOT own a 7 month old whippet puppy.

I'd rather believe that Disney lied over believing that Tara got a hold of those shoes.
