Two (originally children's) tales that underscore the shocking brutality of the world in which these stories were told. The first one is that of three roommates: a sausage, a bird, and a mouse, who decide to mix things up for once. The second is the Robber Bridegroom, a story where a woman has to marry a man who horrifies her...and the lengths she'll go to in order to get out of it.
The creature is the Roperite, a vengeful, narcissistic bird who just can't get over the Roadrunner's good luck.

A sausage, a bird, and a mouse all meet violent ends. A woman is dismembered and eaten by a group of drunk guys. A young woman is in danger throughout one of the stories, first from the dark forest, then from the cannibals, and ultimately from her father's patriarchal notions.
