NEWTwisted Teacher - Episode 10 -2021-07-11
3:11PM Jul 12, 2021
Welcome to twisted teacher podcast where we talk about the stuff we aren't supposed to and spell all the T Hello twisted teachers.
So welcome to Episode 10. And because this is our episode 10, we have a couple of top 10 types of lists for you today that we're going to be talking about. But first of all, we just wanted to let you know that we have how many states can well we have 12 that we haven't reached. Okay, so there are 12 states where nobody has listened to us from so if you know somebody in one of the following states share our podcast with them.
Okay, Oregon, Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Arkansas, West Virginia, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, there might be more than 12. But those are the ones we haven't.
We haven't heard from Yeah. It's pretty cool. Share, share, share, that'd be awesome. And we would appreciate it. Alright. So I have a word for you today. All right. And it's kind of a phrase, and I just want to get your feelings on it. Teacher resume buzzwords.
Oh, that's a good one. And having been on the interview committee, it's real interesting to take those words and use them in the questions. I would say differentiation is one.
Yep. So So I pulled up an article, it's by the busy educator calm, and it is keywords to include in a killer teaching resume, that you should use these words, growth mindset, yes, differentiated instruction, inclusive classroom classroom management, and I'm not going to read them all. Let me see which other one, data driven. Those are all some words, and there are more and that was on the busy educator calm. So if you want to go check it out. But I just saw grouping, flexible grouping.
Yeah, all of that. That doesn't mean a small group of children doing yoga. Flexible Group A. Small Group reading instruction. Yes. guided reading, guided reading. Yeah. Guided math. manipulatives. Hands on, right, project based learning.
All of those are buzzwords, which they're buzzwords for a reason. They are important things that you should incorporate in a classroom. However, if you're using buzzwords that you don't actually use, you're probably going to get tripped up in an interview, I would think. So you will.
Yeah. Because I will ask you, how do you implement differentiation? What is your guided reading group look like? And how do you use data to form your groups? And how do you assess I've had people just like, I'm not trying to call them out. But if they have it in the resume, I'm going to ask them about
it. So here's my question for not a question. But like a noticing having time interviewed in different states. What's really hard is when somebody asks you about an acronym, and they don't explain, like, obviously, there are some acronyms that are standard that go across all education, but sometimes they'll ask about an acronym and you know, full well, like, I mean, now I just say, Can I get some clarification on the acronym, and then it's usually something I can speak to, but I had a different acronym for it from a different state. And so I guess if you are an interviewing person, and you are talking about acronyms, just be sure to maybe clarify that a little bit to clarify what that is. Yeah, right. I would just ask jack, never say do you have a word for me have a phrase kind of
office supply stores, what's the first thing you you go to when you go in even if you need nothing pens?
Probably definitely pens. I'm like notebooks sticking. I love all things, school supplies, my husband so I think this is just the difference between a teacher versus a not teacher like I can remember when my kids were younger and we'd be going to get school supplies and I would ask about or like it would take you know crayons. I mean, first of all, I personally am a big fan of Crayola. There are certain pencils that I love. He would say they have crayons from last year and it wouldn't call me and I guess that's to even consider sending them to school with a not fresh Box of Crayons for the first day of school and I guess that's a way it's a waste of money, but there's just something about school supplies that makes my heart happy. I will say it gets annoying in high school. Because obviously there's there's no way to give you a comprehensive school supply list before they start school. But I really like the especially if you block schedule like your kid comes home day one and is like I need this stuff. So you go get that. And then they have the other classes the next day and they come back and they're like, I need to stop. So you have to go get that. And then by the time school has started, it's hard to get school supplies.
I just I turned to Amazon for that once my kids got to high school. I just think it's easier. I have quite an assortment, the sticky notes of all sizes and colors, note cards of all sizes and colors, paper clips, you know, the paper clips with the little designs on them. And you can actually write I realized I had a lot of pens in all areas of the house in my office. So I think that's it. Yeah, of course the fat ones. Those most famous ones are what are the flare pens? I don't know. The flare pens right, then I have the eraser. Yeah, I
like those two. Those are fine. Okay, so here's my question. Are you pro mechanical pencil or not? No,
no, don't like chemical titles. No, because it's the incessant I have to change the lead. Right? I see. I agree with that. Or graphite, whatever,
whatever it is. I agree with that being annoying, but at the same time, I do enjoy not having them sharpened. So I'd really rather people just get like the cheapo. disposable, like one use only, which I guess is not very environmentally friendly. No, I like just a good pencil with pencils. All right. So we have posted several different two so I guess a couple of different Never have I ever classroom additions and I'm just gonna run through these with you real fast. You can elaborate or not elaborate. You can just give me a yes or no. How to student throw up in your classroom. Is that ever happened to you?
Yes. on my blog, I still have like traumatic memories of that. And I knew she had to throw up. I was in the trailer, the school were reworked. And she had the you know, the heaving motion. And I handed her the trash can. And then she just spewed all over my desk. And I'm like, you could have stepped back. You don't want to reprimand a kid for throwing up. But I think there could be a game plan in what I did after that was just Hey in the trash can to the student and then send them to the clinic. Yeah, it was gross. I was because it makes me want to throw up and then the smell and you can't get stuff.
So my rule is I don't if you have to throw up, go. I don't care if I am running after you saying where are you going? Like keep going and we will straighten it out later Do not throw up on my classroom and I have never actually had a kid throw up in my classroom. And now you have knock on wood because I am very clear that we are not throwing up in my garage. I haven't happened this year, I am sure. But like even my own kids, I guess I was very clear with my throw up expectations for them. Because once they were once they were mobile, they always made it to a bathroom or if we had the stomach flu like into a bowl or garbage camera, whatever. But yeah, throwing up is it is indeed I need to knock on wood because throwing up is not going to happen. Okay, have you ever had a student use the bathroom in their pants?
Well, one I had, which was a mistake of mine at first it last episode. So that was that was teacher mistake. The second one, we went to the bathroom before launch in third grade. Same school we were in when I had the trailer. And he's walking in a turd falls right out of his pants, like joke around and he keeps walking on jeans. It came right down through the pant leg of the jeans. So, you know as teachers, we've got to be careful with anything that has to do with students go to the bathroom in odd in inappropriate ways. Yes, that's gonna be going on. And we always have to keep that in mind. Right. And so I have Mike who do I call? It's a big turd on the floor. He keeps walking. He had to have felt it fall out of his pant leg. And so i guess i got i don't know how i got it cleaned up. And I talked to him. He says it's like going to the bathroom. Awesome. So he just walked and pooped. I don't know how often he would do that. And of course we checked into it. There's there's nothing going on at home. Everything seemed okay. He was just not feeling to go to the bathroom. So he just went ahead and I don't there was I mean, I'm still wondering how it's Yeah,
it was definitely not skinny. I would say I don't know that I've ever had a child who put their pants at school that I've definitely had wet pants at school.
Yeah, that's that's more that's more understood to have them wet themselves then, especially third grade,
right? Okay, so have you ever accidentally shown a video with a cuss word? I have told a story about that happening to me. So it's definitely happened to me.
I believe I have I think it was more. I mean, I remember the burlesque thing. So that's why I kind of said yes to that one. Do you remember the seventh the version of Romeo and Juliet when we were young? That that They were literally naked and I must have blocked it from my memory. So some some teachers showed that version of it and I showed the newer version, which they were a little more modest in it anything
like okay, so have you ever had a student give you the finger? I've told my story about my elearning kid who did? I would I'm going to keep talking, I guess I would hazard a guess that most teachers have had a kid give them the finger. They just maybe didn't see it.
I don't think giving the finger is as powerful as it used to be. I think they do and say other things. But I'm sure someone's flicked me off. I will say that my first year of teaching, there was an empty condom wrapper on the floor in my classroom. I think someone put that in there.
Oh, okay. I was like, wait, your first year teaching was third grade. And it wasn't one of the condoms that came from? Please listen to a previous episode. If you don't know what I'm talking about.
Yeah, I was like, What do I do with that? Am I happy cuz they used one or am I upset because it's in my classroom? Have you ever cried because of a parent email? Usually, it's
not like I'm crying like I've cried because I've gotten emails parent that are sad. Like, they're not like they're telling me like something has happened in their family. They're not saying you suck. And I'm like, Well, I have. And it's usually I'm so like, angry that I got like, not so like, not like, Oh, I'm so sad because I really believe what they're saying. But more I'm so mad that they're like that. But you know,
whatever. If you're accused of things you didn't do, and you don't really have a quick way to respond. Yeah, I've definitely had. Yeah, a couple of times. I can remember them. I haven't had a lot. But yeah,
definitely. I had to skip lunch because you were dealing with discipline issues. Yeah. Yeah. I think so. It's always there was one teacher who responded to us who said nope, in like it was a lot of years. She's never had this. She's never skipped lunch. So good for her. It was something years or something. She said that she never got lunch. And I'm like, good for you. Like she had her boundaries firmly in place, I think cuz I'm not either that or she had no discipline issues, which I find that not. That's kind of hard to believe. Okay, have you ever sent a warning text to other teachers? Because you knew that administrators were doing a walkthrough Now, here's the funny thing. Now you're the person they probably syntax about?
No, I don't do walkthroughs I'll just be real honest. I think in the past, I've selected the folks I texted, because some teachers just might need a warning.
Yeah, I used to warn my team or I'd get I were, I get texts. I mean, the problem is you don't want to be caught on your phone. So um, so have you ever been this is totally off subject. But have you ever had an administrator that has been like, you cannot be on your telephones. And I'm like, dude, I use my phone for so many different things in my room. Like I use it as a timer. I use I have Kagan's selector spinner, an app on my phone I have. So I mean, like I had to go to them and be like, I use my phone all the time for these reasons, almost a little antiquated. Okay, have you ever had great intentions packed up your teacher bag, and then and brought it home with you and then not even taken it out of your car?
There is a lot of a lot of times, especially elementary school. I just because I gave too many assignments. And then I was stuck with having to grade them. Because you know, that was the whole feedback thing. If you don't get feedback, then what's the point? I've done that so many times there's a bag in the car now full of stuff I need to be working on for the county that's still in my car from? I don't know, may it's still there. I know it's there. I know I brought it home because in that effort I've started.
Yeah. The last one I was surprised at the number of people and I think you included who did not know what a circular fight like what when I say a circular file what that reference and I trash can. Yeah, so trash can. That is kind of fun. I'm not gonna do the other one today, we can save the next Never have I ever classroom addition for another day. But I think what's the time for now, our teachers. So maybe what I say is we'll do everything in the correct order or the same order every time but we like to keep you on your toes and you know. All right. So I need your opinion on something because this is something I have not really been following. And that is the whole Britney Spears conservatorship and I don't really know I need to do some research on it because I really don't know what I think I just know that hashtag free Britney is a thing, but I don't I don't know the details.
Well, she had the conservatorship is I think that's how you say it after she got in trouble years and years ago with the police and and that's what she shaved her head right like around that same time. She shaved her head she had it she had a mental breakdown, which you know, let's let's punish her for the rest of her life for that. There's a huge following on Instagram, but she I follow her on Instagram. And she posts these things that people think are curated by other people so that she's still she's still showing up but It looks like it's all being controlled. So I guess recently she went to a hearing or to trial and again, we need to do more research. So she could get out of the out of that situation her dad is the one in charge. You know, I know that morbid has a two part series on that. And I've listened but I don't have the notes in front of me to, to, you know, do it justice in the storytelling, but it is real interesting and, but shout my husband like the videos of her on Instagram, she's just dancing, like spinning and spinning and spinning, she looks a little off there. She had a Christmas tree, the background and one that was not too long ago. So I fell down the rabbit hole of the blogs have to check into it a little
bit. If you know something about this, that you think we should know that you can email us at any time about anything on twisted teacher two, the number email@example.com. So if you are like listening to this and be like, ooh, here's a great source for you to look at. Let us now
Alright, so the next thing we'd like to talk about is top 10 list of things people have done on social media that either they've gotten in trouble for or haven't been, had been frowned upon. Now, before we start this, let's preface that with the fact that we are not saying these are wrong. We're just saying people have gotten in trouble. And we also know that as teachers, we should be able to pretty much do what any other human can do on social media. All right. So one of them is don't post from the pool golf course or airport when you've taken a sick day,
right beach to save the pictures and post them on another day. Like, don't do it on the day that you are home sick because someone will see and someone will let your administration now
there Oh, there's nobody somebody will tell somebody will tell. Again, just post later. And if you want to take a sick day, and do whatever that's on you, I think we've earned those days, but you don't have to advertise it.
Okay, so don't wear spirit wear if you are going to be at a liquor store and then posting so a long time ago, obviously you couldn't post but we were still definitely encouraged by our principal to not shop at a nearby liquor store with clothes that advertise our school on it for sure.
So I mean, put it if you really need to go go ahead and go to the bathroom before you leave school and put it on your shirt on inside out. I have literally done that when people wanted to go get drinks after school and it was like a Friday when you were spirit wear so you can wear jeans. We've already talked about that. When I went into the bathroom and turn my shirt inside out so people wouldn't see me because I we have gotten called out in one of the communities in which I worked. Because we were having like margaritas after work one day or is after open house and then somebody complained that the teachers are drinking. So what? So who gives a flying rat's ass if we had a drink, sloppy drunkenness, different story. And I'm not sure that's really what we're talking about here.
Yeah. Okay. So this is one that I know is a hard and fast like rule, especially when social media was new. And the rule was, don't hold any alcohol in your hands and take a picture of yourself with it and post it. Because apparently, we're not normal humans who are allowed to have a libation. Now, I'm not saying that's right or wrong. I'm just saying I know that back in the day, people would get in trouble. Now I do know you can privacy settings can be a little more stringent now. So maybe you have you post that to the group of people that are not ello teachers with you.
Well, have you ever been at a party, you might have a beer or an alcoholic beverage in your hand and they're taking pictures and you're like putting it down? Or you're scooting behind people? Or you're hiding your head because you don't want to be seen in social media Acme that's, that's really freakin ridiculous. I mean, what are we saying here? I'm just saying, are we taking away like are the parts of ourselves are not teachers, so that we can have this persona that's not really realistic? I don't, I don't understand that
kind of crap. Alright, so here's another just like, you shouldn't do this. Do not, do not post yourself sunbathing, like at home on your planning time, or like when you're not supposed to be at home.
Right. See now, that one of the differences between high school and slows and I think some middle schools and elementary is that our planning times are a lot longer and I had to planning times and those planning times if you've got a block period, it could be a 90 minute segment. Oh, wow. And so yeah, so that was a shocker to me. Like I don't I only had 20 minutes at school. So elementary school, but yeah, people go home, sunbathe, do their thing. Take a picture.
So I have a funny story about sunbathing when you're supposed to be at school, but let's flashback to High School really quickly, my cousin and I went to the same high school all of my cousins. And I did. And anyway, my one cousin and I decided we we were done with that day and we left school I'm not, you know, I'm not recommending that or anything. So we go to the whole, like big process of leaving school after a period, there were kids who did leave. So it was easy to seamlessly blend in. And we went home and we were laying out in the backyard, my backyard, and all of a sudden my cousin looked at me and was like, my math folder is doing seventh period. We have to go back. And I was like, You have got to be kidding. Like we it was harder to sneak back into school and show back up like we left after fit. Like, we were literally only home for like 15 minutes. I mean, and I got caught slipping. When I came back to get my homework out of the lockers we went to see look how responsible we were. Oh, my gosh, I guess yeah. So here's one that I agree with. I'm just going to go ahead Oh, absolutely. don't post test questions from standardized tests ever on so right. Like, I know that we even have a disclaimer now that we say in our whole little speech that says to the children do not talk about any questions on any form of social media, blah, blah, blah, do not discuss any questions. But that definitely goes for teachers as well. I actually really try not to even look at the stupid test. Because, yeah, I don't want to ever be
you might know, you might know exactly what the kids are being tested on that you may
now do. I want to look absolutely for that very reason.
But But what is the reasoning behind the fact that we can't see what's on the test? Because it doesn't make it mean, we're teaching them. And we're not allowed to see the questions we see like prototype questions or sample questions, but there's no way I mean, it's just not saying that you're right.
Can I just tell you that we have math questions now? And I again, I'm not talking about a specific math question. But students, it's like, not all multiple choice or math test isn't anymore, and they have to bubble and answer. But the bubble machine doesn't read fractions, like mixed numbers. So you can't say your answer is two and three fourths, you have to turn it in to the improper fraction. So you spend all year teaching your kids to change their answer into a mixed number. And then when you start test prep, you have to teach them. Well, the correct answer is indeed two and three fourths that you may not bubble it that way, you have to turn it into an improper fraction to bubble
it. Okay, so this one is hard to do. And it's kind of like, it goes back to the same idea of the nasty emails that you need to refrain from sending. But don't post nasty comments about parents be they will always see them, they will always find out it even if you don't use their name. They know who they are. But I know it gets frustrating. I know there's days where like, I don't give a shit. I'm just gonna go post it because this was this was not equitable. For me. This was unfair. I was called out, you know, they don't have the whole story. And then
yeah, just refrain from that. Okay, so this I think, should go without saying don't ever post about kids in your class, especially I'm gonna say don't post about students you don't like
keep it to yourself or to your best friend who right that's the that's the real teachers lounge where you're like, this kid did this, this and this the new thing for me, especially in high school, and it's gonna happen if they ever let kids in elementary have their phones out there recording and videotaping teachers as they're teaching. And I've been in classes watching that because the said parent didn't like something the teacher said, so she's having the child record in videotape, how stressful is that, that you're going to be called out on every single tiny little fight you do. And there's nothing there's no law against it, because it's depending on what state you're in. And if at least one person is aware of the recording, and the teacher was aware, you can't take it not to there's those things and you know, this goes on the other side, too, for the students not to post, you know, out of context video clips of that's a scary thing. That's because there'll be the day that you're like said the wrong thing. And then everything's gone.
Oh, don't friend or follow your students or their parents, if it is avoidable. I think some school communities are different than others. Like when it comes to this, especially with the parents, I try my hardest. Sometimes I have already been friends with somebody and then I get their kid. So there's different situations like that. It's it's just a good rule of thumb to in general, not friend or follow your students or their parents.
Or maybe current like, I know that I have quite a few friends who are former parents from when I taught fifth grade so many years ago when their kids are in college out of college now. You know, that's fine. I'm just talking about like, and especially I think this goes to middle and high like if you're if you're friending students and their parents, it's just there could be some sticky situations that may No different than what they are now again, as teachers, we really should be able to, to post whatever it is that anybody else can post and not be judged for it. Now, again, we can't use our classrooms as platforms for any other like anything but social media on our personal account. That's a completely different story. I know that is definitely a source of contention, especially with our younger teachers who grew up on social media and posting just about everything.
Yeah, okay. So don't complain about your school on social media, by name or not by name. People know where you teach. So do not complain about your school on social media. Right? If you like your job, or even if you need your job, you don't have to like it.
Right. I know that a lot of teachers were posting about some COVID issues they were having at their schools, and they were being called out for that. Because we didn't know how to do COVID. We didn't know how to deal with it. And there was some inequities. There were some things that happened that were not in the teacher's best interest. I'm not talking about students, I'm talking about parents. And there's some things that were not in a teacher's best interest during this time. And I think teachers were fed up, and they talked about it, and they got in trouble for it. So
I this is a big one, I think don't post pictures of your students on your private Instagram account, or Facebook. I know that some classrooms have social media accounts. And I would assume and hope that if that's the case, that the teacher has all has the written authorization to post student pictures. Yeah, but just on your personal account, you should never be posting pictures of your students. And if you are, like really proud of something that happened, I hope we all know how to use the little emojis to protect my child's privacy,
right? And that's what I would do. Like when I go to take pictures, even when it is an account, or school account, I'll cover the student's faces up just to just to cover myself because I don't want to get caught the be the one student in the whole high school who doesn't have they're not allowed to be put on social media, right? Because there are legitimately
kids who have very valid reasons that they can't you know, it is it is time for twisted. Let. Today, we are going to be talking about Snow White. And we're going to start with a little recap of Snow White. Because the grim version is definitely different than the Disney version. And we're going to kind of talk a little bit about them both. And then we have a top 10 list. That is pretty funny. It's why Snow White stupid and why?
why things were, you know, looked into a little bit more. So no, we the grim fairy tales. I know most of us know them. And as a lit person, I'm still learning things about the Grimm Brothers. And I have a couple of fun facts about them. They didn't write the fairy tales. No, they did not. So I'm gonna read this from the biography and off of biography.com News, Brothers Grimm facts, and we'll put this source in the show notes. It says despite the fact that Jacob and Wilhelm are often associated with Snow White Rapunzel, they did not actually write any of those stories. The stories existed long before the two men were born in Germany in the mid 17. At the fairy tales, in fact, were part of a rich oral tradition passed down from generation to generation, often by women since a time during household chores. Again, there's women behind this and it goes back to the whole True Crime thing. I think that's one of them. They the stories This is shocking. They were not intended for children. Right? They really were not. They routinely included sex violence, incest, cook. Worse yet, they didn't even have illustrations. Probably a good thing.
So I like that sentence worst yet. They didn't include illustrations like that is worse than sex and incest. But why would
you want illustrations of that? Right? That's true. It was initially aimed at adults. And so in its original version, Rapunzel gets pregnant by the press after a casual fling. These are reasons these were not intended for children in Cinderella, and we'll go into some of these in more detail in future episodes, and Cinderella's stepsisters cut off their toes and heels to try to fit into the slipper. And so these were revised to become popular among children. Okay. At some point, Jacob and Wilhelm faced deportation and bankruptcy. So they had some issues, the brothers refused to pledge to the king and along with five other professors, the Gatling Guns seven were made to leave the city they were jobless and branded as political dissidents, the brothers were forced to borrow money from friends as they worked on their story collection. So those are just a couple of fun facts about the Grimm Brothers
real. Okay, so tell me a little bit about Snow White and the grim version of Snow White, and maybe even how it differs from the Disney version.
So I'm going to do a shout out to any stepmother out there because we've before we even get started, you've got the connotation of the evil stepmother. So and they might have a background story, you know, I'm thinking snow, why she might be singing the birds and stuff and that might just be annoying. And so the stepmother just had had a bad couple of weeks. So okay, so the 1857 version. The stepmother does not ask the Huntsman to bring back the little girl's heart as in the film. Okay, good enough. You know I had to explain that to my daughters. She asks rather for Snow White's lungs and liver when the hunter fools her by bringing the lungs and liver of a young boar Instead, she boils them in salt, and she eats them. So she thinks she's eating Snow White liver and lungs. Yeah, one of the common threads through a lot of these grim fairy tales is gonna be cannibalism. A little like Hansel and Gretel, right. Yeah, so the Snow White runs off to the dwarves and in the original they didn't really have the personalities as they did in the movie. Okay, cute little personalities as everybody knew them to have right dopey sleepy happy, grumpy. Is there a happy there's not happy? I'm not sure we have a happy Queen we also know is kind of aging and she's jelly of Snow White and all for beauty and she's pissed off about it. So she's got some aging issues going on. Maybe some self esteem you know? I'm gonna give the benefit of the doubt to the stepmother. Now I'm not saying evil is right I'm just saying you get you become evil because of things that happened to you. So the Queen decides she's trying to kill Snow White wants so she decides to put you know take matters into her own hands and somehow she knows what the dorbz she's Snow Whites with adores, she goes three times and each time she leaves with snow. White apparently dead. The third time the Queen returns with what the Brothers Grimm describes as a poisonous poisonous apples is super poisonous. You have to say it twice super poisonous, super on one face of Apple, that one face of apples deadly. The other isn't and convinces her stepdaughter to taste Apple by biting the wholesome side herself. She takes a bite and falls down dead. Of course. Now before this. She comes as I guess a peddler and gives her a comb. So you're answering the door randomly some person you don't know, here's your comb, you randomly comb your hair and you fall down. Yeah, that was one of the right then I think she comes as another forgot who she's changing herself into every time and she gives her laces for a corset and the laces somehow strangle or fixate Snow White and she falls down. So somehow the Queen knows she hasn't died the first two times. And where are the doors during all this? I guess they're high. Whoa. And they're when they're mining. For Joe, so they get home I guess after a long work at the coal mine, whatever, wherever they are. And Snow White's dead she's just full on dead on the floor, you know, and they just pull out a glass coffin somewhere from somewhere in the middle wherever they live. Okay, it's like a little cave cabin thing. And they embossed her name in her birth, name and birth so randomly many years later, so let's let me let me go ahead many years later, many years later, many she's dead in the glass coffin. I guess they keep her there. And then a prince comes to the house and sees the dead girl just random. Right? He randomly comes to the house. He sees the dead girl and he falls in love with her. Okay, it's kind of weird. So the prince likes dead girls. All righty. Then it even gets better because then he wants to buy Snow White from the doors, a little trafficking prostitution. Well, I wouldn't be prostitution if she's dead. Maybe in an odd way it could be I don't know. He tells him that he will die if he can't see her every day for the rest of his life. So the prince is a serious creeper. He's got some made this again, this is the grim version. So true crime. Finally he gets he just wears down the doors and maybe there's Howard having her in there. So his servants are carrying her home in a coffin and they drop her in the jolt performs the Heimlich maneuver in a chunk of the poison apple comes flying out of her mouth and she returns to that's pretty awesome because
I'm a little worried that like being without oxygen for years would have caused brain damage, but you know, whatever. Okay, so some of the reasons just a few of the reasons or is there more there's more there's more
there's a little more it gets better so they get married because you know you're dead. The first man who you see you're gonna marry that's that's really a good lesson for our young women in the world. So they invite the evil stepmother to the way Oh, okay, who tried to kill her? No, I always I get you know trying to get your family back together. But this is not the time especially when somebody has tried to kill you. So she sees Snow White alive and marrying a prince she's soap Okay, quote unquote, from this article. She's so petrified with fry that she could not budge. This is where I think it gets to a point of no return iron slippers have been heated over a fire and they were brought over to the stepmother with tongs, and she had to put on the red hot slippers and dance until she fell down dead. Okay, wow. So in the Disney version, a couple of things are different. Yeah, I didn't realize the prince just randomly was singing outside of her balcony in the Disney version. I had to pull that up. I thought it was snow Sleeping Beauty we were talking about I said we're going to talk about in our top 10 reasons and questions we have about the story or our blend of the the grim and the Disney.
Okay, so my first reason like that, I think Snow White I mean, snowwhite herself is kind of stupid. Her father was obviously really stupid because he obviously didn't realize he was married to an evil witch or a queen or that he had married an evil witch or an evil queen. So therefore, possibly, you know, wide stupidity was inherited.
Also, do you know many men would be like, I didn't know that either.
This is true. I feel like lately, all of my books that I've been reading, like with the gripping psychological twist, have all been yours. We're all split personalities. Mine are all that the woman has no idea that her husband was a serial killer. So I
mean, maybe no idea whatsoever. Well, that's a whole other day. Yeah, not a
whole different thing. Okay, so and then here's my next one. She stumbles upon the Seven Dwarves calling the mage right she maybe Yeah, in the movie? Why did she start cleaning it? I'd be like, dude, these little guys are gross. why she's
patriarchal bullshit, is what I wrote. Because that's just what they were expected to do. What? It was dirty, so why not clean? She needed to keep it was like her. Yes. paying rent.
Okay, like she cleans before they even get home. I guess she was hoping they'd be like, wow, this little woman is great.
I don't know. All right. What time should one verse people by an evil person when you know they're about they're out to get you? A little paranoia might have gone a long way. That was your special note.
Right? Yeah, she's just I mean, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not obligate you like if she had been a little bit paranoid. I think that could have saved her ass. I just don't think she was very smart. Right? Going back to the dad was obviously stupid. I think it was inherited. Alright, so was she so freaking hungry? Were the dwarf starving her to death? He absolutely had take a bite of that Apple. There's somebody had already slobbered on one side of
the shower. Okay, and then turn it around. Right? Right, because they don't talk about how she treated her.
If you walked up to me and took a bite out of an apple and then handed it to me, I'd be like, I'll go buy it right. Well, the apple Tell me another
one that you've assembled Apple goes back to the original sin and Adam and Eve. I did find that not that that makes it better for her to take a bite of it. But it killed her. I don't know if it was poisonous, or if it choked her because it seems like there was something supposed to be poisonous, poisonous, right? And why did the dwarves happen to have a glass coffin? Did they build it? Did they build it in the movie? I haven't I should have watched the movie again or something I
know I should have to. I don't know. But I feel like even if you are building a glass coffin that that takes a skill set that I'm not sure that I knew that the dwarfs had. And then like the other way that she dies, one of the other ways that she dies is the peddler stranger Queen, which comes to the house and like sells her gives her a comb. Right. So I know that when I go to like Walgreens and I buy a new brush, I don't stand in the store and brush my hair, right? I don't know why she all of a sudden gets a comb and like comes her hair and
she was a people pleaser. And she just wanted to make sure that she the peddler knew that she was gonna use the comb.
Yeah. Okay, so this is a good question. And it's kind of different depending on which version we're talking about why and how did the prince fall in love with the corpse of Snow White now, in the Disney version, they had already had a moment because they sang together, right? But still, I mean, although Troy and Gabrielle on High School Musical sang together and pretty much fell in love too. So maybe it's a thing I don't sing so maybe I don't get how you can just fall in love immediately once you sing with someone but in the grim version, I literally think he had never seen her before and just stumbles upon the glass coffin and falls on that he falls in love with her dead body. I like your next point.
Oh do you think the Queen if the Queen had fillers and Botox that she would have been so angry and jealous?
I think it might have been a different plotline if the Queen had gotten some plastic surgery herself to remain youthful Yeah, I think that's a story waiting to happen like you know twisted fairy tales para
You know, there's all kinds of things going through your mind I'm just gonna give her a little credit and I think she just lost it because she was stuck there. Yeah, so the lesson to be learned let me usually you
can come up with a lesson like a theme or a lie moral Well, I would say maybe don't take shit from strange people that you don't know who they are. It's not like it was her stepmother giving her the stuff it was legitimately her stepmother disguised to strangers don't take stuff in don't move in with seven men you've never met
and I just really want to if she was decomposing when the prince showed up
right I'm gonna go with no because he thought she was beautiful and he loved her. Did the to that poisonous Apple like was an embalmer had an embalming? Well, you still decompose even if you're a mom.
All right. Well, that's our snow white or twisted.
lit. segment. Yeah. All right. Well, everyone stay twisted, who had borrowed Toy Story? Three jars. Was that okay? Yeah, that was great.
