Ok, the “Scottish version” of Snow White is the best story ever. Actually Cracked is wrong; it’s not really the same, it’s a separate but similar fairytale (ATU#709) called Gold-Tree and and Silver-Tree. But whatever. I like the message: Wait for your evil mother-in-law to try to murder your wife, then find a new wife who can save your previous wife and help you murder your mother-in-law. And then you get to live happily ever after as as triad. The perfect fairytale for the poly community.
In my movie version, the prince, Gold-tree and the second wife will be played by Dreamer, Beulah and Kimona (that part was just for wrestling fans…. of course, then I’d have Raven come in a DDT everyone…).
It seems these tellers put their own little twists on the tale. Their insane, gut-wrenching, nightmarish twists.
