Just so kids don't get wrong ideas, there should be fact qualifiers before or after every horror movie. Something like this ---

This is just the imagination of a fantasy screenwriter. don't take it seriously

I think this joker is a new competitor with Gunga Dim for the title of Author of the Goofiest Threads on a Flimsy Basis.

@FOUND SOUL,
But this is nothing new. In the days before movies, do you think kids were often told "Don't take that Hansel and Gretel story too seriously. It's just a story. Parents don't actually abandon their kids in a forest." Most of the Grimm fairy tales were designed to scare the bejazus out of any impressionable young child.

@Lustig Andrei,
Sooo Rick had bad parents that never, ever told him and now feels the need to warn children.

That being the case, why would parents let them read them?

Great money making scheme, kids love that stuff. But, nightmares are made from them.

@FOUND SOUL,
Obviously you don't understand the minds of the Germans. They thought Till Eulenspiegel was funny, especially the part at the end where he gets hanged. They laugh until the tears come.

@Setanta,
Quote:
Over the centuries Eulenspiegel's tales have been "dumbed down", becoming bland adaptations of satire
What is with this satire?

Quote:
The last two tales in Eulenspiegel's life (#94 and 95) concern his burial in 1350. Using ancient custom, his body had been placed in a casket formed by the hollowed out trunk of a tree. As the tree was being lowered on two ropes into his grave, the rope at his feet broke, and the tree fell into the grave, leaving Eulenspiegel standing upright. It was quickly agreed, "Let him stand. As he was odd while he lived, he ought to be odd in death too."

The grave was closed with Till Eulenspiegel standing upright. A specially carved gravestone, showing an owl clutching a mirror and providing his epitaph, was placed on his grave. Till's epitaph reads:

Don't move this stone, let that be clear - Eulenspiegel's buried here.


Is that why they laughed ? Confused Shocked

I love learning something new , every day ... Fanks Smile

Years ago, i read the memoirs of an RAF fighter pilot. He was shot down over France in the last days of the war. His engine was knocked out, but he still had his controls (a fighter without an engine is much like a rock with wings), so he was desparately trying to keep it aloft to clear some trees and land in a field. Then he sees a mobile anti-aircraft artillery battery on the far side of fhe field, and they start shooting at him. He hits the gun button on his stick, and the Germans stop shooting at him just as his plane pancakes into the field.

Well, he's pretty banged up, but he manages to slide the canopy back, and climbs out to find himself surrounded by angry German soldiers. They're jerking him around and they drag him over to the AAA battery. There, he sees one barrel of the gun peeled back like the petals of a flower, with the breech exploded. The gunner and loader are dead in their seats. Apparently, in a freak accident, one of the rounds from one of his machine guns went right down the barrel of the gun just as a canon shell was loaded, causing the breech to explode, killing the crew.

Now the soldiers are all silent, looking grim and staring at him. Suddenly, they all break out laughing, just falling out with laughter. One of them who speaks English tells him: "You should have seen the look on your face!" Then they're all slapping him on the back, telling him it was a great shot, he's the luckiest man they've ever seen, and they take him to their truck to drive him off to the POW cage.

For me, that has always been the very expression of the German sense of humor.

@Setanta,
Lol's it all sounded so grim till the end.

There was a war movie about a horse, Red something? Your story reminded me of that...

We all went to see it and burst into tears, un-controllably.. Another story.

But, a German soldier helped the other "side" free the horse...

That was a highlight, "the fight till the end" but "human" nature intervened.

My Grandfather, like many was a Soldier in the war....

He crossed a busy road, not thinking and got run over... So un-fair....................................................

Anyways.

Ancient Roman parents were said to have intimidated,
terrorized, their children by invoking the name of Hannibal.
