Things you may not have thought about when you first heard the tale, but think about now.
- Why is the stepmother so mean-hearted? Is she just the victim of being a stepmother in a fairy tale?
- What are the odds Hansel’s tactic of substituting bread crumbs for the white stones are mentioned as an example of failed process improvement in business school?
- Since when do witches have red eyes, to say nothing of bad eyesight? Is this confirmed in other fairy tales?
- Where did the witch get crabs in order to give Gretel only crab shells when she’s in the middle of a forest? How do supply chains work in fairy tales anyway?
Rated AD-G for general audiences. Contains a fearfully evil stepmother, arguably prejudiced ideas about witches and their eyesight, and lots of candy whose cleanliness is debatable since it’s being used a building materials.
