A photographer here in town did the pictures. I did a book on public opinion, how it forms and functions, and then began a number of other books on American institutions—one on labor unions, one on museums, one on city planning, another on politics.
I was really having a good time until the Federal funding for this type of library book began to run out. I have always had a good sense of humor and an interest in word play. So my editor at Dutton, Dorothy Briley, who had meanwhile left and gone to Lippincott, and my agent and I all talked about it and I said I would like to do a book of tongue-twisters and maybe some other things that would be folkloric. Dorothy said go ahead, and, being a journalist, the first thing I did in that connection was to determine who was the president of the American Folklore Society.
It turned out to be Kenny Goldstein, who teaches at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a very generous man and to this day he is quite helpful. I use his personal library and he gives me all kinds of advice.
A little boy finds a toe in his yard, and he and his parents eat it for dinner. I mean Why are you eating a severed toe that you found in the ground? Naturally, some kind of ghost or shambling corpse shows up looking for its missing toe. But honestly, that kid is the real monster for being so gung-ho about eating human remains.
May I Carry Your Basket? Yeah, so there's a severed head in the basket.
Just FYI. Sam is just trying to be nice when he offers to carry an old lady's basket, but of course the old lady is a headless corpse. And then she and her head chase Sam down and bite him. Moral of the story: never try to help anyone, ever. The Drum So there are these two little girls, right? And they meet a third girl with a cool drum.
And they really want the cool drum you know, kids and their drums. Cool-drum-girl is all, "Sure you can have my drum Sam's parents pick up a new "pet" for him in Mexico, but it turns out to be a rabid sewer rat nice job, parents.
But that illustration is so grotesquely frightening, it kicks up the fear factor more than a few notches.
The Hook I have to say, I'm a sucker for a good old fashioned urban legend. Most people have heard some version of The Hook: two teens are hanging in a car, listening to a news story about an escaped murderer with a hook for a hand like you do , and they keep hearing a scraping sound against the car door. It was pretty awesome.
After twenty years I still remember "The Green Ribbon" as a traumatic memory of my childhood.
Glad to find out it was the same for others too: Ur telling me that all that time her head was off n that ribbon was the one to keep her head attached to her body?? My memories are vague but it was an old southern folk tale.
There's no moral, the reason the ending is so abrupt is because it's one of the original jump scares. The speaker would be calm and somber during the telling of their lives, but then shout "and then her head fell off! In the d a green ribbon around the neck symbolized mental instability.
I dunno if that adds any meaning for ya, but there ya go.
I love this story. I made a poem about this story if you guys want to read it Labels art film junk music photography poetry.
