On the Mouse Ears Of A Dilemma

Most people who know the Butcher's Wife like her for her kindness, her consideration and her sense of fair play. What they fail to appreciate is that she can be very evil when she wants to be. Allow me to explain.

You see, for quite some time now the Missus has been trying to dragoon me into a family trip to DisneyWorld some time next spring. Most readers of this blog probably would not be surprised when I say that I find the entire concept of Disneyworld and everything in it to be perfectly loathsome and, as a result, have so far steadfastly refused to be hustled into going.

But this weekend, the Missus upped the ante by saying that if I do go, I can write whatever I like about it here. Arrgh! What a diabolical ploy! The prospect of all of that material for a wall-to-wall snarkathon puts things in an entirely different light. I haven't formally agreed yet, mind you. But she's undoubtedly found the talking point. Damn her!

The other thing she keeps saying is that if I do go, I have to promise that I'll smile and look happy. Feh. I've been resisting that one too, but last night I got thinking that, in fact, artificial enthusiasm was perhaps the perfect behavior for a visit to such a place after all.

All I can say is that if this deal goes through, you guys are in for some choice ranting.

I was very anti the idea of going to Disney World until I went for the first time more than 10 years ago. I loved every minute of our week there. Go. You'll enjoy it.

It's a world of laughter
- A world of tears
It's a world of hopes
- And a world of fears
There's so much that we share
- That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all


Die all you brown and yellow people from mostly communist and dictator ruled countries!

Disneyworld is really not so bad. I think the Disney corp. has lost its soul and that Michael Eisner may well be Sauron himself, but the parks are actually pretty cool.

Took my wife browbeating me into it to go, also.

Ah, come on down, it won't be that bad. But be sure to visit Gatorland while you're here.

No, I think I like the Butcher's Wife BECAUSE of her capacity for evil, she's such fun to be around. That said, Tom is adamant about skipping Disney, we'll see how long that toot lasts. The Family Guy is always busting on Disney -- Michael Eisner to Stewie: come to Disneyland. Bring money.

P.S. Brass's song above was hysterical.

There is no great genius without some touch of madness.
