Ferret Fairy Tales

As a well-known branch of pop culture, fairy tales can pop up in all kinds of weird places.  Since we all know a ton of the classic fairy tales, they can easily be used to make jokes that people of all ages will understand; I mentioned this before, in my post on the hipster Little Mermaid.  This can be seen in Ferret Frenzy’s 2o11 calendar, “Ferret Tales.”

Ferret CinderellaI discovered this bizarre calendar in the mall, a few months ago.  The whole concept seemed so singularly weird that my friend had to buy it and has been keeping me updated on the “ferret tale” that graces her wall each month.  The calendar, which is comprised of ferrets photoshopped into easily recognizable fairy tale settings, includes ferret versions of many of our favorite fairy tale characters.  Snow White, Goldilocks, and even Little Red Riding Hood have ferret doppelgangers.

Unusual as this calendar may seem, there’s something about it that is truly hilarious.  I know I’ve often said that the dead fairy tale medium manages to keep growing in all sorts of ways, but this may actually be the weirdest of them all.
