POTD: Cowboy Moon

So this misquoted line came to my head on a walk the other day: “….and the cowboy jumped over the moon.” What made me think in terms of fractured fairy tales I don’t know; perhaps a residual of watching too many episodes of Rocky and Bullwinkle back in the formative years of my youth.

Apparently to this day there still exists a genre of literature (illustrated or otherwise) devoted to fractured fairy tales. Perhaps the most controversial and disgusting of these come from the NRA who armed characters such as Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel in rewrites of their misadventures.
