WEBVTT 1 00:00:03.399 --> 00:00:07.150 Welcome back to your favorite train wreck of a podcast, down to fork. 2 00:00:08.230 --> 00:00:11.710 I know you have been eagerly waiting on the edge of your proverbial seat for 3 00:00:11.869 --> 00:00:17.070 season two, and here we are. Why are you about to be disappointed? 4 00:00:17.149 --> 00:00:21.460 Or maybe you won't be. At least you will continue to get your 5 00:00:21.500 --> 00:00:26.739 money's worth of free entertainment. This season we will be kicking things off at 6 00:00:26.780 --> 00:00:31.339 the camp fire. Spoilers. Apparently, the fire must complete its full story 7 00:00:31.500 --> 00:00:36.090 cycle before it can push out another story, which can mean only one thing. 8 00:00:36.649 --> 00:00:40.409 We will be putting a pin in our cliffhanger ending so Prejordan can tell 9 00:00:40.490 --> 00:00:45.850 de Voss's full bell pepper story. Lucky you. Welcome again to season two 10 00:00:45.890 --> 00:00:49.689 of down to folk. Feel free to leave and come back once the Holy 11 00:00:49.810 --> 00:00:59.840 Trinity get their Shit Together. As they sit by the camp fire looking out 12 00:00:59.880 --> 00:01:03.510 into the night sky, I reminded of a story I heard just recently on 13 00:01:03.629 --> 00:01:08.069 a podcast, or or in a dream, or maybe even in a memory, 14 00:01:08.709 --> 00:01:14.750 but here it goes. A long time ago, in a faraway place, 15 00:01:15.310 --> 00:01:19.859 there lived a family of GNOMES. There was Aiden, the dad, 16 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:26.019 and Ada, the MOM. The kids names were Icho, Armada, Binali 17 00:01:26.420 --> 00:01:30.900 and bannocks, and the youngest was named Bell Pepper. Bell pepper was a 18 00:01:30.980 --> 00:01:36.450 feisty one. She would often wander far off into the fields by herself, 19 00:01:36.890 --> 00:01:40.810 well past midnight, when it was the most dangerous of time for gnomes to 20 00:01:40.849 --> 00:01:45.609 be wandering by themselves. Her mother would often scold her when caught, saying 21 00:01:45.650 --> 00:01:51.560 AH, Bell No, to which bell pepper would reply, I'm just going 22 00:01:51.640 --> 00:01:56.439 to the salad bar to have a few drinks. Everything's Cool, stop getting 23 00:01:56.439 --> 00:02:00.799 your non panties in a twist. No, Bell Pepper's mother would say, 24 00:02:00.469 --> 00:02:05.349 you are much too young to be going to the salad bar. That's for 25 00:02:05.510 --> 00:02:08.830 mature nomes, gnomes who have now surpassed their four hundred viewing of the Moon 26 00:02:08.990 --> 00:02:16.099 twelve times. Mother. How exactly do I calculate that math, bell pepper 27 00:02:16.180 --> 00:02:20.659 asked. Well, Dar you simply take four hundred divided by twelve and then 28 00:02:20.659 --> 00:02:23.060 multiply that by thirty. One. Square that past the age of the Earth 29 00:02:23.139 --> 00:02:28.419 and your great grandmother's first birthday, and Oh, I don't know, just 30 00:02:28.699 --> 00:02:32.650 trust me. This made bell peppers sad because she knew her mother failed math 31 00:02:32.889 --> 00:02:38.530 class. So Bell Pepper, being who bell pepper was, which was someone 32 00:02:38.569 --> 00:02:43.330 who relied on social media for all our facts, especially all medical science information 33 00:02:43.650 --> 00:02:47.599 and modern math practices. She googed it, decided she was old enough and 34 00:02:47.840 --> 00:02:53.280 went to the salad bar anyway. The Salad Bar was hopping, the music 35 00:02:53.400 --> 00:02:58.669 was Funky, the bodies were sweaty, the boys were fly and the girls 36 00:02:58.710 --> 00:03:01.990 were fly, and what I mean by that is they were literally flies, 37 00:03:02.909 --> 00:03:10.150 like there were flies everywhere because someone had read weddinged the joint an hour prior. 38 00:03:10.990 --> 00:03:15.939 If Bell Pepper's mother hadn't delayed her with the confusing age math conversation, 39 00:03:15.419 --> 00:03:21.580 bell pepper would have been toast, just like these disco's gnome zombies. Huh, 40 00:03:22.139 --> 00:03:25.139 thought bell pepper. Allowed then she took out her phone and Google mapped 41 00:03:25.219 --> 00:03:30.490 the nearest nightclub called Dubert, and danced the night away, giving no thought 42 00:03:30.490 --> 00:03:35.090 to the dead gnomes at the salad bar. Come morning, Bell Pepper, 43 00:03:35.370 --> 00:03:39.770 exhausted by the night's revelry, those breakfast triplets and the crunchy old captain were 44 00:03:39.849 --> 00:03:45.360 off the hook. She decided to do the walk of shame back to her 45 00:03:45.479 --> 00:03:51.560 home. However, in her exhaustion, she didn't look both ways when crossing 46 00:03:51.680 --> 00:03:55.270 the street and was struck by a humble farmer and his cart and died. 47 00:03:57.150 --> 00:04:00.030 Why? Because death is a bitch and death will make you her bitch. 48 00:04:01.069 --> 00:04:05.110 The humble farmer, not knowing what he hit, got out of his cart 49 00:04:05.469 --> 00:04:10.699 and saw the dead gnome and panicked. He threw bell pepper into the back 50 00:04:10.819 --> 00:04:15.620 of his cart and hurried home with hopes no one had seen his vehicular homicide, 51 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:19.699 at that was the right term for hitting and killing someone with one horse 52 00:04:19.939 --> 00:04:25.649 driven cart. Anyway. Now, the humble farmer was a simple man with 53 00:04:25.810 --> 00:04:30.009 simple needs and simple wife and three simple kids. Like the kids were really 54 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:33.410 dumb, dumb as rocks, one might say. And as he rushed home, 55 00:04:33.810 --> 00:04:36.730 he took the dead nome and quickly buried it in the garden behind his 56 00:04:36.889 --> 00:04:42.680 home, hoping his wife and children would not notice his mysterious gardening at such 57 00:04:42.720 --> 00:04:46.800 an early hour. He went inside and as his simple wife slept, he 58 00:04:46.879 --> 00:04:50.040 kissed her four times on the forehead and slid into bed without her noticing. 59 00:04:50.839 --> 00:04:57.069 Now, I know you might be asking yourself what was the humble farmer doing 60 00:04:57.149 --> 00:05:00.829 out so early in the morning? Well, to be quite frank with you, 61 00:05:00.870 --> 00:05:03.509 it's none of your damned business and we've got a lot of more stories 62 00:05:03.550 --> 00:05:06.500 to tell this season. So just accept this premise and move on with the 63 00:05:06.620 --> 00:05:12.300 rest of the story. Okay, so later that morning the humble farmer woke 64 00:05:12.500 --> 00:05:15.819 to the sound of his three simple children screaming about something growing in the garden. 65 00:05:16.259 --> 00:05:19.579 The humble farmer jumped out of bed and quickly ran to see what the 66 00:05:19.660 --> 00:05:25.009 commotion was about. Papa, what is that, the oldest child said, 67 00:05:25.050 --> 00:05:29.170 pointing at the mound of dirt conspicuously shaped like that of a dead gnome. 68 00:05:30.209 --> 00:05:32.689 It's a new crop I planted early this morning. There's nothing to be worried 69 00:05:32.730 --> 00:05:38.439 about, the humble farmer quickly replied. But what is growing from that mound, 70 00:05:38.639 --> 00:05:41.920 the Middle Child said, kicking the mound, revealing the beautiful green leaves 71 00:05:41.959 --> 00:05:46.399 and vines breaching from where the GNOMES head would have been. It's a special 72 00:05:46.560 --> 00:05:51.829 type of vegetable that will bring us fortune and fame. The humble farmer gazed 73 00:05:51.829 --> 00:05:57.949 upon the plant with amazement. What's the vegetable's name, the third child asked, 74 00:05:58.230 --> 00:06:02.029 touching the leaves and pulling gently. Well, it's called and then the 75 00:06:02.069 --> 00:06:06.699 humble farmer saw that that the vines, the Gold charm from a necklace peeked 76 00:06:06.699 --> 00:06:11.180 from the ground. The charm was one of those name charms and it read 77 00:06:11.660 --> 00:06:16.180 Bell Pepper. The humble farmer grabbed the gold evidence and said plainly, it's 78 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:21.649 a bell pepper, and the three children accepted their father's answers without any challenge 79 00:06:21.689 --> 00:06:27.370 and quickly ran inside for breakfast. The humble farmer was in awe of how 80 00:06:27.529 --> 00:06:31.920 quickly the plant grew that by nightfall the plant had produced six peppers that in 81 00:06:32.040 --> 00:06:36.639 fact look like bells. They were beautiful and full of color. They were 82 00:06:36.680 --> 00:06:42.480 like nothing he had ever seen. The next morning the humble farmer picked the 83 00:06:42.600 --> 00:06:46.959 six bell peppers and placed four of them in his cart to sell. He 84 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:48.750 would leave one for the family to eat, and the last one he would 85 00:06:48.750 --> 00:06:53.750 use to grow more peppers for the future. He took the seeds out of 86 00:06:53.829 --> 00:06:58.230 the sixth bell pepper and buried them into the ground next to the original plant, 87 00:06:58.670 --> 00:07:00.779 you know, next to the dead gnome he'd killed and disposed of. 88 00:07:00.860 --> 00:07:06.180 Right the humble farmer took the fifth pepper and gave it to his wife. 89 00:07:06.740 --> 00:07:10.939 Slice this up and have a great lunch. Save a little for me when 90 00:07:10.980 --> 00:07:15.139 I come back from market. Then the humble farmer kissed his simple wife and 91 00:07:15.379 --> 00:07:19.769 simple children each on the forehead four times. Why do you kiss me four 92 00:07:19.889 --> 00:07:25.649 times? Dear his simple wife asked. Each kiss brings on good luck to 93 00:07:25.850 --> 00:07:29.810 each bell pepper I have to sell at the market, replied the farmer, 94 00:07:30.160 --> 00:07:32.560 and I will have the grandest luck, for I have the grandest bell peppers 95 00:07:32.720 --> 00:07:36.879 and the grandest family in the land. All of our children were born with 96 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:43.199 IQ's of eight deer, replied the humble farmer's wife. Well, times that 97 00:07:43.360 --> 00:07:46.389 by for for each of our children and for yourself, and times that by 98 00:07:46.509 --> 00:07:49.990 each of their IQ's and will have two hundred times the luck at market. 99 00:07:50.629 --> 00:07:56.149 The humble farmer too was not good at math, so off to the market 100 00:07:56.189 --> 00:08:00.060 he went. Now it may seem odd that he only went to sell for 101 00:08:00.300 --> 00:08:03.139 bell peppers, but, like the village, had never seen anything like this 102 00:08:03.339 --> 00:08:05.740 and well, it would be a hard cell. He tried them and if 103 00:08:05.740 --> 00:08:09.060 they sold, you knew that he could then sell whatever was to come from 104 00:08:09.060 --> 00:08:13.089 the new plant. And, Lo and behold, he sold all four peppers. 105 00:08:13.569 --> 00:08:18.810 People were so excited the humble farmer was elated and rushed back home to 106 00:08:18.889 --> 00:08:22.769 tell his wife. When he got home he found the house empty. The 107 00:08:22.889 --> 00:08:26.360 table was set and it looked as if the children and his wife had eaten 108 00:08:26.399 --> 00:08:31.399 the bell pepper for lunch and as their plates were half eaten, bites of 109 00:08:31.439 --> 00:08:35.799 food remaining on the table. At the head of the table was a simple 110 00:08:35.840 --> 00:08:39.480 little bell pepper egg dish, to which the humble farmer quickly ate. As 111 00:08:39.519 --> 00:08:43.789 he wandered the house looking for his family, he stepped outside to the back 112 00:08:43.830 --> 00:08:48.429 of the House and froze in his tracks. There before him laid his three 113 00:08:48.470 --> 00:08:54.590 children and wife, dead, faces swollen as if they had suffocated or been 114 00:08:54.710 --> 00:08:58.460 poisoned, the vines of the bell pepper plant twisting and growing over their wretched 115 00:08:58.580 --> 00:09:05.019 corpses. Then the humble farmer felt the burn in his throat as it swelled 116 00:09:05.259 --> 00:09:07.659 and he began to choke. He fell to the ground, reaching for his 117 00:09:07.820 --> 00:09:13.809 family and cried out loud with his last breath I'm sorry, I'm sorry, 118 00:09:13.769 --> 00:09:20.009 I'm so and then he died. Up on a hill not far from the 119 00:09:20.009 --> 00:09:24.360 humble farmer's house, a family of nomes Dands to Jig at the side of 120 00:09:24.399 --> 00:09:28.720 the farmer's death because they knew something. He did it. Don't kill and 121 00:09:28.840 --> 00:09:33.919 then bury a gnome in your garden. You go to the authorities and you 122 00:09:33.080 --> 00:09:37.039 tell them about the accident, and there they will be a trial and if 123 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:41.149 it was truly an accident, then you might get off with a very minor 124 00:09:41.230 --> 00:09:43.309 punishment or go to jail for your crimes, and the family would have some 125 00:09:43.470 --> 00:09:46.509 peace knowing that their loved one could be buried properly under the last ray of 126 00:09:46.549 --> 00:09:52.100 sunlight. Because if you don't, the GNOMES will poison your garden and will 127 00:09:52.139 --> 00:09:56.820 kill you while you eat, because nomes don't fuck around and death, like 128 00:09:58.059 --> 00:10:09.929 we stated, it a real bitch. Why do we even try any more? 129 00:10:09.769 --> 00:10:15.129 Oh, look, chat has joined us again to read US poetry collected 130 00:10:15.210 --> 00:10:18.409 by the dipshit in turn, Dana. He has assured me this is in 131 00:10:18.529 --> 00:10:24.480 fact real poetry from a pair of writers known as the brother's way. So 132 00:10:24.679 --> 00:10:39.870 buckle up and get ready, because here it comes. When I was a 133 00:10:39.990 --> 00:10:50.340 young boy, my father took me into the city to see a marching band. 134 00:10:52.980 --> 00:11:00.220 He said, son, when you grow up, would you be the 135 00:11:00.419 --> 00:11:09.169 savior of the broken, the beaten and the damned? He said, will 136 00:11:09.289 --> 00:11:18.279 you defeat them, your demons, and all the nonbelievers, the plans that 137 00:11:20.440 --> 00:11:31.039 they have made, because one day I'll leave you a phantom to lead you 138 00:11:33.789 --> 00:11:50.419 in the summer to join the black parade. Sometimes I get the feeling she's 139 00:11:50.740 --> 00:11:58.779 watching over me, and other times I feel like I should go and through 140 00:11:58.899 --> 00:12:05.970 it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets. And 141 00:12:07.850 --> 00:12:20.679 when you are gone, we want you all to know a world that send 142 00:12:20.840 --> 00:12:30.429 you reeling from decimated dreams. Your misery and hate will kill us all. 143 00:12:31.789 --> 00:12:39.549 So paint it black and take it back. Let's shout it loud and clear, 144 00:12:39.710 --> 00:12:54.139 defiant to the end. We hear the call do or die. You 145 00:12:54.299 --> 00:13:03.450 will never make me, because the world will never take my heart. Go 146 00:13:03.649 --> 00:13:11.490 and try. You will never break me. We want it all. We 147 00:13:11.730 --> 00:13:20.080 want to play this part. I won't explain or say I'm sorry. I 148 00:13:20.200 --> 00:13:31.110 am unashamed. I'm going to show my scars, give a cheer for all 149 00:13:31.149 --> 00:13:39.309 the broken. Listen here, because it is who we are. Just a 150 00:13:39.470 --> 00:13:45.860 boy who had to sing. I'm not a man, I am not a 151 00:13:46.019 --> 00:14:07.409 hero. I don't care. We will carry on. Will carry on and 152 00:14:07.730 --> 00:14:18.679 though you are dead and gone, believe me, your memory will carry on. 153 00:14:20.960 --> 00:14:43.059 You will carry on and though you are broken and defeated, your weary 154 00:14:43.179 --> 00:15:11.759 widow marches on, and we will carry on. At least the music was 155 00:15:11.879 --> 00:15:15.960 better this week. It's all about the small winds at this point, I 156 00:15:16.120 --> 00:15:20.870 guess. And then there was Ariel. Let's see, what can we expect 157 00:15:20.909 --> 00:15:26.590 from this? Whatever, you can head down to the grotto and get your 158 00:15:26.629 --> 00:15:30.590 ear assaulted while I go see if Harry will let me borrow Cabeza, because 159 00:15:30.629 --> 00:15:43.179 I'm about over all of this bullshit. Once upon a time, in a 160 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:48.700 kingdom far away, a queen and a King welcomed a new daughter into the 161 00:15:48.740 --> 00:15:54.850 world. The child was perfect in every way. She cooed and giggled and 162 00:15:54.970 --> 00:16:00.490 wiggled her toes. Her parents were so proud they invited the entire kingdom to 163 00:16:00.529 --> 00:16:06.519 the castle to marvel at their baby girl. Well, almost the entire kingdom. 164 00:16:07.159 --> 00:16:11.879 They didn't invite militia. She was kind of a kind and she always 165 00:16:11.879 --> 00:16:17.720 smelled a little like sausage. It was unnerving, but malitias showed up anyway. 166 00:16:18.159 --> 00:16:22.470 Despite that, nobody wanted her there. Typical. Told you she was 167 00:16:22.470 --> 00:16:26.389 kind of a count right. She didn't even pull the whole Oh, I 168 00:16:26.950 --> 00:16:30.350 assumed the invite got lost in the mail stick. Nope, just flat out 169 00:16:30.389 --> 00:16:33.740 showed the fuck up and was like what's The bitches? And everyone was like, 170 00:16:33.860 --> 00:16:37.059 Oh, you're so annoying, and she was all, I hate babies, 171 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:40.299 but you should have invited me, and they were like, we did 172 00:16:40.340 --> 00:16:41.940 invite you on purpose, because her girls and mean, and she was all, 173 00:16:42.100 --> 00:16:45.980 I'll show you mean. And then she curched the baby to die at 174 00:16:45.980 --> 00:16:51.769 age sixteen when she pricked her finger on a spindle or some shit. It's 175 00:16:51.850 --> 00:16:56.970 really dumb. Still, that was a serious threat, and militia was magical. 176 00:16:57.889 --> 00:17:00.919 She might have been a stinky bitch, but she was true to her 177 00:17:00.960 --> 00:17:07.319 word about magic. But the child had three fairy godmen there's they couldn't undo 178 00:17:07.440 --> 00:17:14.200 Malicia's spell, but they could edit it, so to speak, and so 179 00:17:14.480 --> 00:17:18.589 instead of pricking her finger and dying, she would simply fall into a deep 180 00:17:18.630 --> 00:17:23.390 sleep, only to be broken by love's true kiss. fairies take forever to 181 00:17:23.470 --> 00:17:29.109 age, so instensibly they still be around to help her a just and so 182 00:17:29.269 --> 00:17:33.660 the baby became a child, the child became a teenager and the teenager became 183 00:17:33.700 --> 00:17:37.980 a well, I mean I guess still a teenager. She didn't live with 184 00:17:38.099 --> 00:17:41.980 her parents in the castle. Her fairy godmothers had taken her into the woods 185 00:17:42.019 --> 00:17:47.289 where they lived in their little fairy house. They wanted to protect her in 186 00:17:47.329 --> 00:17:52.569 the event that militia had more evil in store for the girl. And while 187 00:17:52.650 --> 00:17:56.809 she appreciated her fairy godmother's like so much, she didn't really understand why she 188 00:17:56.849 --> 00:18:03.119 couldn't live in the palace like couldn't she be protected there? They had guards 189 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:08.119 and soldiers and shit for a reason or whatever. On her sixteen birthday she 190 00:18:08.319 --> 00:18:12.029 was out singing and dancing with animals or some other Disney bullshit, when she 191 00:18:12.470 --> 00:18:15.829 stumbled upon a spinning wheel. I mean, it was right there in the 192 00:18:15.869 --> 00:18:19.630 middle of the forest. It wasn't the weirdest thing she'd ever seen out in 193 00:18:19.630 --> 00:18:23.190 the woods, I guess not. Even that day she passed by a bear 194 00:18:23.309 --> 00:18:29.420 devouring a little girl, a boy obliterated on rocks below a Rickety Bridge to 195 00:18:29.539 --> 00:18:32.980 dragon corpses Awhend to go smoking, a sick her at with what looked like 196 00:18:33.019 --> 00:18:36.380 a glass of scotch sitting up on top of a mountain ledge, and a 197 00:18:36.539 --> 00:18:41.809 gathering of animals crowded around a guillotine where a hair had been decavitated, well 198 00:18:41.849 --> 00:18:45.009 in a part of his shoulder. But WHO's kept anyway? So she walks 199 00:18:45.009 --> 00:18:49.329 up to the spinning wheel and for whatever reason, decides it's a good idea 200 00:18:49.369 --> 00:18:56.960 to prick her finger, and she immediately falls fast asleep. She inexplicably ended 201 00:18:56.039 --> 00:19:00.559 up in a tower in the castle rather than looking like she'd tied one on 202 00:19:00.640 --> 00:19:06.839 in the woods. So there's that. The girl slept, and slept beautiful 203 00:19:06.839 --> 00:19:11.950 as ever. The days turned into months, the months became years and the 204 00:19:12.029 --> 00:19:18.029 years became, well, you know, more years, I guess. And 205 00:19:18.269 --> 00:19:22.950 she aged as she slept, but had no wrinkles or anything because she had 206 00:19:23.190 --> 00:19:29.740 only the sweetest dreams. It was sort of like an opium high. So 207 00:19:29.900 --> 00:19:33.420 one day this prince is passing by and he makes an assumption that there's probably 208 00:19:33.460 --> 00:19:38.170 a sleeping woman in the tower. Oddly prophetic, but it could just be 209 00:19:38.250 --> 00:19:42.730 wishful thinking. He was the kind of guy that you could totally see shopping 210 00:19:42.769 --> 00:19:48.650 are post Al and hollister wearing a puka shell necklace while poorly strumming Dave Matthew 211 00:19:48.809 --> 00:19:52.880 songs and smelling like old spice and date rape. So of course a sleeping 212 00:19:52.960 --> 00:19:57.119 woman would be appealing fucking herb. So, rather the then go in and 213 00:19:57.240 --> 00:20:03.400 like introducing himself to the king and Queen, he just took out his climbing 214 00:20:03.480 --> 00:20:07.470 supplies. Yeah, he had them on him. He's climbed a lot of 215 00:20:07.589 --> 00:20:12.309 towers looking for leaving women and begin scaling the Tower. When he reached the 216 00:20:12.390 --> 00:20:18.349 window, he saw the princess fast asleep in her bed and was immediately overcome 217 00:20:18.470 --> 00:20:22.980 with love. Okay, actually he just got a boner, but that's about 218 00:20:22.980 --> 00:20:26.819 as close to love as anyone in this story is going to get. Anyway, 219 00:20:26.819 --> 00:20:29.619 he goes over there right he's about to plan to big kiss on her. 220 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:33.740 He knows this kind of story. Loves True Kiss and all that. 221 00:20:33.700 --> 00:20:40.490 But as he leans in, he sniffs the air. Is that urine? 222 00:20:41.890 --> 00:20:45.009 He backed up slowly and began to take in the scene. That woman on 223 00:20:45.250 --> 00:20:49.680 the bed. Her skin appeared grafted to the linens, and he doubted those 224 00:20:49.759 --> 00:20:56.119 had ever been washed. Her dress appeared to swallow her entirely, as her 225 00:20:56.160 --> 00:21:02.839 bones protruded from her emaciated frame, any muscle having atrophied years ago and subsequently 226 00:21:03.000 --> 00:21:07.710 broken down and cannibalized by the starving body. Her hair, which he could 227 00:21:07.750 --> 00:21:12.710 tell at once been thick and healthy, laying clumps around her head, fallen 228 00:21:12.789 --> 00:21:18.140 out years ago. Her mouth gaped open, revealing yellowed and broken teeth, 229 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:23.980 and yet he could still hear her raggit breathing in and doubt, in and 230 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:29.819 out, like he was a scumbag but even he was horrehyde. What the 231 00:21:29.980 --> 00:21:34.410 actual fock who would be so cruel to keep this woman alive for what had 232 00:21:34.529 --> 00:21:37.970 to be at least a hundred years? She was a god dear mummy. 233 00:21:40.009 --> 00:21:44.849 He felt the burning bial pushing its way up his throat and he hastily clumbed 234 00:21:44.930 --> 00:21:48.599 back out the window. If you ask the fairies, they will tell you 235 00:21:48.759 --> 00:21:55.359 to this day the princess continues to sleep, her body decomposing as she struggles 236 00:21:55.400 --> 00:22:00.160 to maintain any manner of bodily function. They tried to find the three fairy 237 00:22:00.240 --> 00:22:04.829 godmothers, but when the fairies showed up at the woodland cottage, it was 238 00:22:04.950 --> 00:22:11.309 found abandoned, the door wide open, food still on the table, dishes 239 00:22:11.349 --> 00:22:18.180 in the sink and the television one. They were on the lamb and they 240 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:27.740 still are. Pure evil. Even Kelly thinks they're sick. You have been 241 00:22:27.859 --> 00:22:33.970 listening to down to folk.
