The Creepy Origin Of Mad As A Hatter
If you look up the phrase “mad as a hatter” you’re going to notice something very disturbing. It’s not all fun and games like it’s portrayed by The Mad Hatter in the story “Alice In Wonderland“.
The Hatter in the story was a crazy colorful character who had certain spurts of sanity followed by a lot of madness. However the matter still had enough sense to help Alice.
The REAL PHRASE came from something a little more sinister…..
I always knew that the hatter was a crazy character, but I never realized that it came from something that was true. Just like other Disney stories and characters, sometimes their origins aren’t created from happy things, but sometimes from rather odd and this particular case a very crazy story.
