I was in the Disney store on Oxford Street yesterday. My daughter has been badgering us about this 101 Dalmatians type dog for Christmas (yes, already!) and as I was passing I thought I'd buy one and stash it.

OK. Done. So, I thought I might get something for Lucas too. I know - Handy Manny and his tools or something. But, guess what, not one piece of Handy Manny merchandise anywhere in the shop!

He is a non-person and probably in the Netherland Gulag.

Disney as the Soviet Union!

Didn't you know the High Street is dying? :)

I know but I needed to see that it was the right one (the spotty dog, I mean). I quite like the image of Disney as a repressive police state

re-reading my post - it sounds like he has been sent to Holland? :D
