Hansel and Gretel


Hansel and Gretel

The two cuties in the above picture might cause some to forget the dark side of today’s story about a wicked scheming witch that puts together a gingerbread and candy house trap to lure children so she can pop them in her oven and eat them.

The story reminds me of a W. C. Fields funny man quote. Three things were wildly known of Fields:

(1) He said when offered a glass of water, “I never drink anything that fish swim in.”

(2) When asked if he had any requests on his painful death bed he said, “I’d rather be in Philadelphia” having no love loss for that city.

(3) And like the witch in todays’s story, not a great lover of children, he said smiling, “Kids are nice if they’re cooked right.”

I think W. C. Fields was joking but the confectioner witch was not. Still in this story the tables are turned for these two children had brains and not just sweet tooth(s) and out smarted the witch, she ending up in the oven and not they, a pretty sweet deal all in all.
