Hansel & Gretel

There’s a thing or two I’ve always found a bit fishy with that tale. I’m pretty sure the Grimms were biased… could Hansel and Gretel still been angelic little darlings if they had run off on their own? But I think it’s fairly likely. What would you do if you were eight years old and couldn’t sleep because your belly was churning with hunger and you could hear your hated stepmother talking about how to kill you???

There’s more to this story, I tell you – the shocking TRUE story of Hansel and Gretel…

Snapped this photo at the gypsy fair down the road this afternoon. I suspect the fair’s authenticity, but the children were real.
