A Tabloid Updates an Old Fairy Tale

Recently some British scholar claimed that The Iliad and The Odyssey were not the product of a single author (Homer), but instead stemming from the oral tradition of a culture over an extended period of time. Ho! The Greeks were barbarians!

Revisiting of cultural traditions is not exclusive to hoity-toity learned scholars in ivory towers; even the tabloids have gotten into the act.

Specifically, the Anaconda, Montana Daily Butt Squeeze reported on some recent exposé made by a local scholar of an old fairy tale. This seems credible. Will Disney make an updated version?
