"Fallen Princesses..."

"... When The Happily-Ever-After Doesn’t Happen."

Especially loved the Cinderella picture.

But in real life Pocahontas married a wealthy member of the English merchant class and she died young after having been feted in England.

Princess Jasmine picked up the wrong ammo belts and an undersized magazine for the rifle. She's not going to last long.

One was enough. Though I did like the second. After that: whatever.

Speaking of Princess Jasmine, the new Woody Allen movie Blue Jasmine is a tour de force of a fallen Princess coping poorly with losing her lifestyle.

It is painful to watch, although it is very well acted.

That Jasmine model looks just like Huma Abedin.

Snow White's prince has a hole in his tights.

Little (Big) Red Riding Hoodie wasn’t a princess

From one of the links:

"Fallen Princesses Book

The Fallen Princesses book is a collection of essays, published pieces, interviews, online conversations, project secrets and antidotes about the project."

Do they mean anecdotes instead of antidotes??? hmm.

I like the fact that Badass Jasmine has an M16 rather than the stereotypical AK47. That probably means she has joined NATO to finally throw off the oppressive system that has kept her sisters in chains. Judging by the color-coordinated Army Rangers patch on her right thigh, she is evidently part of an elite force fighting terrorism through firepower and fashion sense. That sounds like a happy ending to me! (She is going to have trouble fitting those .50 caliber cartridges in that .223 magazine though. But maybe she just jumped out of a helicopter and didn't have time to remove the ammo belts.)
