{tumblr} Gladys Constanten ~ Rapunzel

tumblr_n1e13lpw9X1rdey8zo1_1280.jpg.

Originally published February 14, 2014, on Tumblr.

‘Ah! you wicked child,’ cried the enchantress. ‘What do I hear you say! I thought I had separated you from all the world, and yet you have deceived me!’
In her anger she clutched Rapunzel’s beautiful tresses, wrapped them twice round her left hand, seized a pair of scissors with the right, and snip, snap, they were cut off, and the lovely braids lay on the ground. And she was so pitiless that she took poor Rapunzel into a desert where she had to live in great grief and misery.
On the same day that she cast out Rapunzel, however, the enchantress fastened the braids of hair, which she had cut off, to the hook of the window, and when the king’s son came and cried:
‘Rapunzel, Rapunzel,
Let down your hair to me.’
She let the hair down. The king’s son ascended, but instead of finding his dearest Rapunzel, he found the enchantress, who gazed at him with wicked and venomous looks.
‘Aha!’ she cried mockingly, ‘you would fetch your dearest, but the beautiful bird sits no longer singing in the nest; the cat has got it, and will scratch out your eyes as well. Rapunzel is lost to you; you will never see her again.’

Read the story of Rapunzel here.

How can one resist a video that opens with Ted Nugent getting blown away and ends with a blonde building sand castles on the beach before being carted off, under arrest, in a helicopter, as Don Johnson watches from the water’s edge, forlorn?

Clearly a modern-day reworking of the Rapunzel fairy tale.
