Never trust a princess...

Second City Network has just released the latest in their series, "Advice For Young Girls From a Cartoon Princess". This time, Snow White (played by comedian Danielle Uhlarik) gives the skinny on her platonic relationship with seven strange men, housework, wildlife, trusting old ladies and hooking up with princes:

"You know you've made it as the prettiest person
when everyone around you wants to kill you..."

The first two in the series tackled more recent iterations of princesses, Ariel and Belle:

Hilarious and sad.
