The brilliant non-P.C world of Roald Dahl

I just bought myself a copy of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes, a classic collection of twisted fairytales, well worth checking out if you haven't already grown up having them read to you by your mummies and daddies back in the day.

Anyhow, I found this passage which must have flown right over my innocent little head. And the publishers...

from Cinderella

"What's all this racket?" Cindy cried.
"Mind your own bizz!" the Prince replied.
Poor Cindy's heart was torn to shreds.
My Prince! she thought. He chops off heads!
How could I marry anyone
Who does that sort of thing for fun?
The Prince cried, "Who's this dirty slut?
"Off with her nut! Off with her nut!"
