Dulces Anahuac (Tijuana, Mexico - July 2001)
Everyone remembers when Sir Walter Raleigh became this mixed-up robot who
couldn't spell and tried to kill people, right? "I AM RALEY G, BEEP BOPE"?
Well, this candy cigarette brand commemorates the history. Of that.
There actually are cigarettes sold in Mexico that look suspiciously like
these called "Raleigh" or "Raleighs".
Oh good, the neighbor's home, still sans muffler. I'm giving his
car another week, tops, considering the amount of tranmission fluid he's
dumped on the ground. Any day now, really. I think a real man, like Sir
Walter Raleigh, for example, would have kicked his ass already. But then,
what gives with the flowery neckbrace, Walt? That's like reading Steinbeck's
hearty Travels with Charley and cringing at the part when he takes
Charley, the mangy poodle, to be groomed. Really, you're cringing throughout
the book, because Charley is a poodle. That's not a dog you
take on a cross-country road trip. It just doesn't fit, no matter how many
different states of being he's able to communicate to you via his "Fft"ing.
