Family Portraits, 6: The Land of Fun
Paul Agostino (#2, The Gifted One)
Disney World is an unnatural and unholy place. You have a duck running around in a sailor’s shirt and no pants spitting out words in a strangled voice that you can’t understand, you have a dog named Goofy or Nitwit or Lame Brain who owns another dog that is named after a false planet, the place is run by a squeaky-voiced 90-year-old rat without any teeth, claws, or balls, you wait on long lines in the jungle heat to take rides to nowhere, and they don’t serve beer. You may call that a “Magic Kingdom,” or “The Land of Fun,” but I call it “Hell.” Still, I’m glad to be here with my family. Tea Cup Ride, here I come.
