Grimm is sick of happy endings, bloodless romances, blind obedience, insipid weddings, unearned wealth, unmerited praise, and undeserved good fortune. Heâ€™s had enough! And, like every bad boy whoâ€™s had enough... he wants more. More passion, madness, revenge - and misery. More darkness, and more difference. And whatâ€™s the harm?
Enough of this baloney (for want of a more suitable 4-letter word) passing itself off as culturally-relevant commentary. Fairy tales arenâ€™t supposed to suffocate us with nonsensical pap. They should engage us, entertain us. Forget the sap-sucking morals, the boring life lessons, the comfort from the cold. Grimmâ€™s tales are like real life: nasty, brutish, and short. And funny.
