I just don’t see the hungry people. These summertime freeloader feasts are frequented not by the famished and faint, but by the fat and flourishing.
It sounds like a dark, lurid tale. An evil creature luring little children to a feast. The kiddies get fat and sassy on limitless sweets and meat pies. Fat and sassy, indolent and apathetic, and finally, completely helpless against the terrible fate the evil creature had, all along, designed for them. This is not “Hansel and Gretel,” this is the feeding trough of the public school free food trap.
