Welcome back to Stupidville

March 2, 2011

Blog Guy, you’ve written about your brother Basil, who used to be an expat export expert and now plays mandolin in Mandalay. But do you have any other siblings?

alice dallas 240Sure, there’s my sister Alice. She lives in Dallas.

Does Alice have a nice house in Dallas?

Nice? It’s a palace!

A palace in Dallas for Alice?

She even has a sculpture in the garden.

A sculpture? Of what?

I’m sorry to say, it’s a phallus.

Sorry? You harbor malice toward Alice’s phallus in Dallas?

Well, perhaps I am callous.

Alice and Dallas 220But I thought you also had a sister named Susie.

Yeah. The floozy. She carries an Uzi…

I have to go now, Blog Guy. You just keep on talking.

Its just a phallus in Alice’s Palace…
Just like in every garden in Dallas
People are funny and not at all callous
They just look the other way, in good ol’ Dallas…

There is something about Alice Braga’s smile that kinda freaks me out a bit.

Is this the Alice with the restaurant or the one from wonderland? Or are they one and the same? If you really can get anything you want at Alice’s restaurant, can I get a doughnut with extra sprinkles?

@Jazz – maybe you should just go ask Alice 😉

This blog brought back memories… there was a lot of hoolabaloo locally over a phallic sculpture haha…basically some individuals wanted this sculpture pulled down before the Pope’s visit to Malta.

Had they managed to do so, would Alice have taken the Maltese Phallus?
