Here it is: the evil queen is an idiot.
“Now, now … no cause to be rude. Play nice!”
She’s an evil queen. I can be rude if I want to.
Anyway, said EQ has a problem: Snow White is prettier than she is.
Now, a rational, non-idiot person would come up with a rational, non-idiot solution.
You might say “force feed her five chocolate cakes a day and ruin her complexion” or “bump her off, yo.”
Something like that.
The evil queen’s plan?
Ooo … going right for the “bump her off, yo” option, eh?
Not this poison. This poison doesn’t actually get rid of Snow White.
It preserves her.
And her beauty.
And has a built-in loophole to cure her.
What the heck, evil queen? Why not just use regular poison?
If it was good enough for Socrates, it’s good enough for Snow White, that’s my motto.
The obvious answer, of course, is that the evil queen is kind of an idiot.
But hey, maybe not. She might have just not thought through her plan all the way. Happens to the best of us.
Now if a smart villain like the Joker or Professor Moriarty had to get rid of Snow White?
She’d be dead.
Because the smart villains think out their plans all the way through.
So next time you’re making a plan, think like the Joker or Moriarty.
Not like the evil queen.
‘Cause she’s an idiot.
