For White Rabbit

It seems Tim Burton has done yet another remake of Rev. Dodgson's paedophiliac paeon to Alice Liddell. I keep wondering if some poor collector will get done for having some of his pics of Alice and need either of our services to beat a kiddie porn rap.

Oh dear, it seems that Michael Sheen is playing the White Rabbit in this œuvre. well, it beats Tony the Weasel, which he played rather eerily in the Queen.

Another load of famous thespians to make me wonder if this would really be worth the dosh to see. Although, it is getting good reviews, but I think they pay for those. BUt I do have to wonder when I see the likes of Tim Pigott-Smith, Alan Rickman, Matt Lucas, Stephen Fry, Timothy Spall, Paul Whitehouse, and Anne Hathaway (I thought she was dead and buried in Stratford-Upon-Avon). Although, I wouldn't mind dating Anne if I could get over the concept.  I like the chat up line: "Hey, babe, You've gotta go out with me--I'm from Stratford-upon-Avon!

Of course, John Profumo could also use that line on her as well. Oh, he was just our MP.

BTW, Dodgson was another old Rugbean. Tim Pigott-Smith didn't go to Rugby, but was a townie. I think one of his kin was an old boy during my first year, which made the Merrick character even more evil in my mind. Although, should I ever meet Tim, I will play him John Handy's Rainbow and tell him it's the Raj Quartet. He should appreciate that.

There is something very troubling about the average Victorian middle class parent...

Rev Dodgson: 'Um, do you mind if I photo your pre-adolescent daughter with her kit off?'

Average Victorian middle class parent: 'Noooooooooooo - help yourself. What could be more normal?'

The fun bit is some poor collector is nabbed with the things: are they still kiddie porn.

Where is John Mortimer when we really need him?
