Three Billy Goats Gruff

If you didn't know, this tale originated in Norway. I have this terrible English transition of the story that I just have to share with you.

So the third goat comes over the bridge and the troll says he's going to gobble him up and the goat responds "Well, come along! I've got two spears, and I'll poke your eyeballs out at your ears. I've got besides two great big stones, and I'll crush you to bits, body and bones." Graphic, huh? Maybe this shouldn't be a bedtime story!

Oh, that is nothing compared to the other Grimm's Fairy Tales! You should read all the originals, but not to the boys! Disney and parents have made bedtime friendly versions, but the original German stories are SO GROSS! I used to love them when I was little!
