With a Carving Knife

Post by Scattercat » Tue Nov 09, 2010 4:30 am

It was a punishment. Retribution. The three mice, you see, had transgressed. They had sinned. And as sinners they deserved the severance of a part of themselves. A sacrifice.

Blind? Yes, they were. It's the title of the song. Your point?

You're not following, I see. What simpleton could be so deluded as to intend defiance of the Divine? No, they were sinful in themselves, as part of their very nature. That is the secret.

Well, there's metaphorical and then there's metaphorical, if you see my point. Now hold still, or this will hurt far more than it already would.

I second this, because as I recall, the farmer's wife cut off their tails with a carving knife (see how they run!)

Also this is how I feel about roaches. Their very existence feels like a sin. D:

ALSO ALSO. Dribblecast dibs >:D

I remember back in high school, playing the murderer in Agatha Christie's "Three Blind Mice." Hardest part was learning how to play the damned song on the piano.
