Definition of a prince

In which I argue that princesses are a bunch of flangiprop.

Disney princesses

Fairy tale Princesses are bad enough (looking at you Snow White) but their male counterparts are just as terrible.

Tall, dark,  Handsome? What is needed is a word to sum this all up, I propose that word to be ‘flangiprop’.

These are the real reason that princesses fall in ‘love’. It’s not like Snow White, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty had long conversations before they decided Prince Cute-but-Stupid demonstrated his GSOH that princesses apparently “look for”.

Princes are very flangiprop, they are shallow and once every 7 seconds stop and think about sex. But here’s the thing…there are some of us who spend the other 6 seconds thinking about other stuff…you know like not being total d!cks. About being nice and considerate, about how we can help others, thinking about the little things.

And this means we waste 85.7% of our lives because no princess measures you by the depth of your personality, it’s about the size of your flangiprop. I’ll admit that attractiveness plays a part in all relationships, but lets not pretend it is solely a man-thing. Princesses are just as bad. In reality being ‘the kind of person I would like to meet’ means nothing if a lack of ‘physical attraction’ doesn’t get you through the door. Without the looks you are in “good friend territory” and leaves you like some doe-eyed Jehovah’s Witness standing on the doorstep.

In truth most Fairy Tale Princes are:

  • Idiotic
  • Whiny
  • Stupid
  • Rush head long into romance
  • Rush head long into trouble

Still they’ll always get the girl, thanks to being enormous flangiprops.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Flangiprop!.”

Invent a definition for the word “flangiprop,” then use the word in a post.

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

  1. As the prince said in Into the Woods“I was raised to be charming, not sincere.” Have you seen Into the Woods? The movie was a decent remake, but the original play was pretty spectacular and addressed this very thing.
