Reinventing the fairy tale - Fun and Games with Jenners 12


Blogging buddy Jenners challenged us to rewrite a fairy tale by mixing it up with pop culture.

I picked the disturbing tale of Hansel and Gretel.

You know the awesome tale of the evil bitchy step-mother who demands the poor woodcutter father abandon his children in the woods because they have no food to share with them. In the woods the children are rescued by a child-eating witch. Things go from bad to worse until the kids manage to cook the witch and steal her gold.

They find there way back to the father who tells them the step-mom is dead. We don't know how that happened but he was woodcutter after all and had a lot of sharp objects in the house. He hugs his kids and tells them he won't leave them for dead again and they tell him the found some gold and life will not be great.

Blah blah happy ending.

My version merged with the characters of LOST.

Once upon a time there was a very drunk doctor who died in Austrailia.  His HOT son Jack went to fetch his body.  On the way home Jack's plane crashed and he found himself lost in the words.

Soon Jack awoke and found Kate who helped the poor doctor sew up his side.

When it became apparent that rescue wasn't coming, Jack led Kate and the rest of their group into the forest.

"Do not worry," he said, "I can find the beach again and I will get us home."

In the woods, the group encounters all sorts of dangers including a polar bear, a smoke monster, and a visit from Jack's dead father.

Just when the group is about to revolt and name a new leader, they come under fire and are taken hostage by the OTHERS.

The OTHERS want to fatten them up and eat them.  They trick the others by offering a chicken bone instead of their fingers everytime they come over to their cage to see if they have fattened up.

Soon a man from the future named David Faraday arrives at camp and the entire show begins to really  Jump the Shark

It's truly sick just how much I love this totally outlandish tale.

I've never watched 'Lost', even the commercials confuse me.

Love the chicken bone for the finger trick.

I love your outlandish tale! You have a great imagination. I love the clever tone in your story. One of these days, I have to watch Lost. Love the "jump the shark" reference.

Great job!
