Unleashing Bold Initiatives

For whatever reason, sometimes I get into a topic and ideas just flood into my head. The above cartoon came during one such time when I’d seen a drawing of Rapunzel in a children’s book.

Rapunzel offers all sorts of possibilities! 

There’s the hair, of course, and the prince, the tower, the witch, the rhyme. . . then you can branch out into shampoo, knots, rock climbing, etc.  Once I started thinking about Rapunzel, I wrote a good dozen jokes in about five minutes or so.

The above cartoon is one of my favorites because it’s so far removed from the actual scene.  I think it illustrates that there’s always opportunity to breath new life into old topics.

    Is Rapunzel a character in a children’s book? In Sweden you have Pippi Longstocking with a special type of hairdo! 😉
