Seven League Boots

He's a horrible ogre, but I dig his hair and vest.

I've seen uglier and far worse-dressed. Believe me.
But that girl does look worried.

This one's a particularly bloody fairy tale. Lots of child abandonment and cannibalism and so on. It's no wonder the ogre's wife is a little stressed.

I often wear seven league boots to get to work. BLAM BLAM! And I'm there. I'm going to have to look up this fairy tale. It sounds good.
