This is ridiculous, everyone knows that Cinderella's prince was a foot fetishist.

Actually there's a misunderstanding here. The slippers are not really made of galss. In French they're called "pantoufles de vair", where "vair" is pronouced the same way that the word "verre", meaning "glass". But "vair" it's a name for an animal (something like a squirrel). So everybordy think it's "verre", "glass", but really it's just fur.

My work here is done.

That is an urban legend. The glass slipper was invented by Charles Perrault, whose original text is still available to read (here it is on Project Guttenberg.) It is indeed "pantoufles de verre" (glass). Glass, it is suggested, was the peak of chic in 17th century France, so Perrault simply used the most outrageously extravagant footwear he could think of (compare and contrast with the Brothers Grimm version, where she dances in shoes made out of solid gold- a metal known for being heavier then even the proverbial lead.)

Okay, wrong thread but I already have the links ready and this forum won't let me make a new thread without an account and the account needs to be validated by the admins.

If your all out of material, maybe it's time to retire. Just gather your enormous piles of webcartoonist money, buy a secluded home and live the rest of your life in peace and quiet.

Different approaches to a kind-of-sorta similarly themed subversion of an established joke structure, made 9 years apart?

This is a very mild thing to be upset about.

It's almost as though it would have been more productive for the both of us if you hadn't felt the need to share this.
