Grim tales in a sea of hope

(pardon this blend of humor in todays pc climate with a twist of lemon)

Hickory dickery dock, three mice ran up the clock. The clock struck one, the other two escaped with broken legs……..and soon filed a lawsuit against the owner for an unsafe clock. The mice won hands down.

Jack and Jill went up the hill. Jack was charged with trespassing and Jill complained of sexism that she had to carry a galvanized pail of water, while the Fish and Game commission examined the pail for illegal earthworms. They found none, but by this time Jill’s feet were sore because of her high heels, and threatened Jack with a lawsuit saying he caused her to tumble-down the hill. I say it was the shoes.

Little Jack Horner sat in a corner. He was accused of putting glue in Ms. Muffets hair. It was really a spider’s web, because the young lass tricked Jack into eating whey too much curds. It made him nimble and quick, and jumped like a Mexican bean over the candle stick, and the paraffin Police busted him for waxing eloquently without a permit.

Mary had a little lamb, and she was continually fleeced by the IRS, harassed by the Farm bureau for not having fencing, and cited for a jaywalking lamb.  But nobody seemed moved when Old MacDonald had that farm. Seems a bit prejudicial. Anyway, she appealed and won when the school board agreed that her lamb was an example of a faithful and model student, and that her lamb did not cause global warming.

Jack Sprat could eat no fat. Why? Because the breakfast nazis accused his lean wife of making covert doughnuts.  Nothing happened though, due to the evidence being licked clean. Yep, ‘fat free’ is the fault of fairy tales.

Who was it that huffed and puffed and blew the house down? Not the wolf, because his days were numbered and ended as a pot of soup. But not before the three little pigs had to endure a long court battle for a defective chimney cap which led to the wolf’s demise. They won though, for it was proved the wolf knowingly and willingly scaled the roof. The owl attorney named jack was a big help.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Huge mistake. He forgot to clock out for break, and was notified he had to appear before the Labor Relations board. Imagine his chagrin as he rocked back and forth, and fainted…. but there has been talk of a cold case being opened due to new allegations regarding the kings horses and men.

Epilogue

Gotta love the old nursery rhymes, but I do not care one whit about pc, and the devilish effects it has on common sense which permeates just about everything.  Now then, is there a greater tale to be told?

Yep, for children raised on such harmless stories know the difference between truth and endless fables. They know a carpenters table is not made accidentally, and they know God made the tree for the carpenter to make the table. They innately know God’s word is good. They know God made great whales as the supreme guests of the seas. They know that the eagles wings were not given to man. They know there is an absolute and ultimate Authority.

They simply need to be told by more ‘advanced’ minds that there is no difference between little Red riding Hood, and Joseph and his coat of many colors. Please.

Fortunately, there is the human conscience, that untaught great equalizer that recognizes lies, and knows truth from error, light from darkness, and instantly separates the brothers Grimm from the book of Esther.

All it takes is a big bad wolf to steal the joy from the little ones, or to suggest that the earth and all that is, the heavens and all that is, are a fabrication no different from little Bobby Shaftoe.

‘Be careful that ye offend not one of these little ones who believe in me………..’

  1. Ha! How delightful, Colorstorm. Well done. You certainly made me chuckle. Grim tales, indeed.

    The old fairy tales, before they became Disneyesque, taught us some really valuable things about the world around us. And nursery rhymes were usually political commentary from those who did not have free speech rights. Only the people knew what was really being said.

    What’s kind of bummer about political correctness is that nobody really wants to offend, something nearly impossible in today’s cultural of the chronically offended. So people become hesitant to do anything at all and we withdraw from each other. It’s a very shame based system and not healthy for anyone. Some of these poor little guys in school, good grief, they try to hold someone’s hand and all this adult disapproval about sexual harassment comes down on them. Or you’re playing with a toy gun and suddenly you’re the one who has caused sea levels to rise and civilization to be perched on the brink of destruction.

    Seldom spoken about is how many businesses have decided to simply shut down. It just gets to be too much, the threats of audits and gov regulations and a culture that just wants to sue for every little thing.

      Ub right about the far reaching tentacles of pc gone sideways.

      Yeah like the kid who said a girl was ‘pretty’ is deserving of a three day suspension. Geez.

      And in a related note, the pc crap has wedged its way into churches as well. And we wonder why the salt has lost its savor.

      Love your toy gun/sea level/civiliz/destruct/ –awesome, you raised a chuckle to pure laughter 😉

    “Advanced” minds huh? Yep, if only we would get some education and be cured of our mental illness, we would soon give up all of this God nonsense. And now, we are “quaint.” I’m actually honored, as the one thing I have never been called is quaint.

    IB said something once that has stuck: “Compared to God we are all morons.” How true was that? We are all spiritual morons, and no amount of study and google searching will ever change that. The only thing which will ever advance our minds spiritually is the enlightenment provided by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Until then, we are all morons. Morons armed with a spiritual pea shooter.

      Good one Wally. I’m of the opinion that ‘googling’ makes many stoopider— not all, but many.

      Eating reams and reams of junk, never digesting or considering context.

      Consider the cow………..who chews the cud. Yep, that demure animal that affords many a lesson.

      Good reminder there too by our wise friend about morons. Of all we know, we but know in part; we merely touch the hem of the garment…

      And ah yes, the pea shooter! 😉

    Those old Fairy Tales are timeless classics that teach many a good lessons on right/wrong, light/darkness, good/bad, so of course they are being shown the door by the usual PC morons (I’m sensing a theme here with that word so just went with it) because they are too violent or not gender appropriate or whatever. Oh how God must look down here and laugh at our foolishness. Or perhaps weep at times….
