Yet more wolfen slander, 1 September 2013
Author: Shawn Watson from The Penumbra

Big "Bad" Wolf, now speaking with a German accent for some reason, takes his kids out to hunt, opting to finally finish off the three little pigs while they still frolic campily. The sensible pig is even building an elaborate torture device to protect them from Wolfie. His brothers have been crying wolf as a joke and doesn't take them seriously when he turns up in actual sheep's clothing.

Again, as much as I'd like to see those little pigs get shoved in the oven and Wolfie and kids finally be fed it doesn't happen. The sensible wolf brings his torture device and gives 1930s cartoon-going kids the pleasure of seeing an animal go through excruciating pain just for being what he is.

A disturbing metaphor if there ever was one.
