10 of the Most Bizarre Fairy Tale Adaptations

“A Case Study of Emergency Room Procedure and Risk Management by Hospital Staff Members in the Urban Facility,” Stacey Richter

In this short story, very loosely based on Charles Perrault’s Cinderella, the Princess is a meth head who has wandered into an emergency room. Her fairy godmother, as it were, is a gilled angel named “Gilbert” (possibly “Gillbert”), and the Prince tricked her into helping him run his meth lab by feeding her a giant pony made of candy. Cinderella as a drug addict having a psychotic episode? You know, it kind of makes sense.
