In a fantasy kitchen, a witchy-looking mother looks angrily at her beautiful adolescent daughter. The mother points toward a big oven.
Mother: Daughter, I’ve tolerated your adolescent whining for long enough. Into the oven!
Daughter, aghast: Are you saying you’re my stepmother?
Mother: What? No.
Daughter: Oh. You’re sure I was incubated in your womb?
Mother: For nine terrible months I will never get back, you monster.
The daughter crawls into the oven and pulls out a bone.
Daughter: Okay, you scared me for a moment. I’ll clean out all these bones for you.
P.S. Our bills are paid by our wonderful patrons. Could you chip in?

LOL … this is a fun one.
Little thing about the description … the daughter crawls into the oven with a bone, not with a brush and dustpan.
Whoops! Thanks for catching that.
You’re welcome. Glad to see it has been changed.
Does the mother eat humans?
She’s clearly in the ‘baking children’ trade. Don’t forget that since the Brothers Grimm such atrocities can no longer be done by a birth mother, so as long as she’s the birth mother of her daughter, the daughter is in no dangers to share the fate of the other children.
I always love the facial expressions in this comic strip! Simple yet expressive!
Seconded. It’s difficult not to imagine the mother fantasizing about incinerating her daughter and also scoffing at the idea that the daughter would even think that her mother would so such a thing.
I dont get it
In fairy tale retellings since the Brothers Grimm, only stepmothers kill children. Hence as long as the girl is the biological daughter, she’s in no danger.
… or she thinks she isn’t…
