25+ Funny Quotes about Fairy Tales

Fairy tales are a literary staple of any childhood. The powerful scenes they describe, the emotions they convey, and the obligatory happy ending they provide are very influential on the minds of young children.

But if you think about it, some of the lessons from fairy tales are nowhere near to the realities of everyday life. They cover the whole spectrum of the highs and lows of modern life.

As a result, many funny quotes about fairy tales and the messages they intend to impart travel around on social media, poking fun at the content of the stories themselves or the stereotypes they play into.

From the damsel in distress to the knight on his trusty steed, no character is safe from the minds and wit of those viewing these stories from a real world, adult perspective.

Take inspiration from these funny quotes about fairy tales and rediscover the hidden messages for managing our busy adult lives.
