Do you all remember the children’s book, I know an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly? It was about an old woman who swallowed a series of increasingly larger and larger insects and mammals: a fly, spider, bird, cat, dog, goat. Somehow though upon swallowing a horse — THAT — was too much. Well that makes sense…
I remember being terrified whenever the teacher brought that book out to read. Seriously, a book about chronic over-eating, animal abuse and erupting stomach lining?
I bet the creators of American Horror Story loved that story.
Don’t get me started on Ring around the Rosie.
