Another Dutchism

“Sneeuwwitje stikte in de appel.” - “Snow White choked on the apple.”

Apparently, in the Dutch version, when the evil witch gave Snow White an apple, she didn’t just fall into a deep deep sleep until her true love came around and gave her a kiss; she just choked. I’m hoping this is a shining example of Dutch humor.
