Illustration Friday: Giant -

"... fee-fi-fo-fum,
I smell the blood of an Englishman,
be he alive, or be he dead,
I'll grind his bones to make my bread ..."

Yes! Can you imagine a modern version of "Jack and the Beanstalk" done by Wes Craven? :O

Even a mean giant has to eat, Susu.

This is really disturbing! Goes very well with the quote though.

Tonya Vollertsen:
The quote, obviously, is from the Old Fable known as "Jack and the Beanstalk". The written form of most fables and fairy tales share an oral history that's likely hundreds of years older ... many are frightening and gruesome, designed to keep the children close to the house and in view. But, who didn't know all of that? :)
