Dasvedanya, Llama-ettes!

Our good pal JohnL at TexasBestGrok has discovered the perfect alternative to the upcoming Llama frog march to Disney: Stalin World!

Says the proprietor of the place, one Viliumas Malinauskas, “It combines the charms of a Disneyland with the worst of the Soviet gulag prison camp.”

That'd be a neat trick, since the only major difference I see betwen the two is that in the gulag, the guards shoot you if you smile, while at Disney, they shoot you if you don't.

Message to the Butcher's Wife: Honey, call Aeroflot!

UPDATE: Brian B of Memento Moron, a blog you should be reading every day if you don't already, had these questions after my last outburst on this subject:

Hypothetical question for ya:

Assume for a moment that you get there and actually enjoy all/some of the experience.

1) Do you 'Fess up?

2) How many ways will your missus think of to serve you crow?

Short answers are:

1) Not in a zillion years. Not under sodium pentathol, not under threat of the Comfy Chair. No. Possible. Way.

2) Their name is Legion.

OT here, but how is that N.T. Wright book you're reading?

Yikes, what a segue! I must confess I haven't started in yet. It's next in line for my evening read but I promised myself I'd finish up the Journals of Lewis & Clark first. The good news is that our boys are headed home and have already come back as far as Great Falls, Montana, so I should be able to start on the Wright pretty soon.

Holy crap! I was there in Vilnius when they took down the statue in the first picture. (Not to mention being out in the street when the Spetsnaz shot the place up in Jan. 1991). I can't believe this wacko is putting it back up.
