The Little Mermaid, lovely, sweet Ariel ... WTF? A Lovely and Sweet Mermaid ... there is No such creature and I will tell you Why!
This Children Story is so sickly sweet that it almost makes me gag on my seafood platter.
I know, dear readers, that you ALL may think that it is a Charming Bedtime story to read to your children when putting them to bed at night ... but come on ... get REAL!
It was even further sugar-coated when Disney Studios got their hands on this quaint Faerie Tale (Who here remembers the Movie "Splash") and turned it into a mindless pile of Hookum! Enchanting Entertainment for young impressionable disconcerting minds it may be, but where are the actual facts? The TRUTH?
Mermaids are the Sirens of the sea and have been mentioned in Ancient Myths and Folklore through out History. They were the bane of Fishmen and Seaman and blamed for causing Sailors and there ilk for throwing themselves over-board by their enchanting looks and song and instrumental in ships floundering on Rocks and having their hauls torn asunder by jagged reefs.
The sweet, melodious, enchanting and enticing Sirens' song has been said to drive men crazy and lure many a Seafarer to their Doom.
Do not take my word alone dear reader. If you find yourself questioning my revelation and wish to know the TRUTH, I strongly suggest that YOU Google both "Mermaids" and "Sirens" and I deduce that you too will come to the same conclusions as I.
The Little Mermaid; Ariel is a complete over- the-top and unbelievable fabrication and fantasy and nothing more than a HUGE stretch of the Imangination and that even Faeries would be embarrassed to lean their names to this kind of "Faerie" Tale. How could anyone even contemplate filling their children's heads with such dribble.
In TRUTH, the Real Ariel, the Mermaid is a Blood-lusting creature of the Deep who exiles at luring poor seafarers to their death.
PS: Dear Readers, I am NOT here to re-write Faerie Tales (NOT Yet, anyway) ... rather to review.
