Cinderelleper: A Fairytale Satire

by Ford Forkum

5/5 stars

I’ve always liked fairy tales and this humorous adaptation of Cinderella is no exception. The protagonist falling apart (from leprosy) was somehow both intriguing and at times emotional. I laughed a great deal at the subtle surprises thrown into the traditional narrative; especially the fate of the wicked stepmother!

Haiku Pop

A while back, I asked my friends on Facebook to create haiku from popular music. The concept was reinterpreting lyrics into a new art form. Ford Forkum and Justin Bog came up with great poems.

metaphorically
it’s easy to die for you
without peace of mind

No one should go to
Scarborough Fair, unless you
Need thyme for beef stew.

I look at you all
See the love there that’s sleeping
While the auto-tune kills
