GOSH, YO! I LOVED HILAIRE BELLOC'S CAUTIONARY TALES WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID, YO! 'MATILDA TOLD SUCH DREADFUL LIES, IT MADE ONE GASP AND STRETCH ONE'S EYES' - GOSH, YO! SUCH FUN! YES, YO - SHE DID GET BURNT TO DEATH BECAUSE OF HER NAUGHTY LIES, AND YES, NAUGHTY JIM GOT EATEN BY A LION BECAUSE HE RAN AWAY FROM HIS NURSE, BUT SERIOUSLY, YO, THEY ARE EXAGGERATEDLY SILLY AND HILARIOUS! IT IS SILLY ENGLISH HUMOUR, YO! THE BRAVE LITTLE PUCK WAS NEVER SCARED!
READ THE MATILDA POEM HERE
, YO! BRILLIANT STUFF!
That Night a Fire did break out--
You should have heard Matilda Shout!
You should have heard her Scream and Bawl,
And throw the window up and call
To People passing in the Street--
(The rapidly increasing Heat
Encouraging her to obtain
Their confidence) -- but all in vain!
For every time she shouted 'Fire!'
They only answered 'Little Liar!'
And therefore when her Aunt returned,
Matilda, and the House, were Burned.
YES, YO! BE WARNED, ALL YOU NAUGHTY LIARS OUT THERE! THE SAME FATE WILL AWAIT YOU! ;D
