Lewis Carroll was not a pothead.

We all know Miley Cyrus, right? She's annoyingly popular, has huge buckteeth, and just starred in a motion picture. she also insulted one of the greatest works of fiction of our time:
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, often abbreviated to simply Alice in Wonderland. Lil' old Miley, lookin' for some more media attention, has called it "perverted." She claims that the story is based upon drugs.
Uh-huh. Alice was actually created as a story for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who published the Alice books under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, to entertain the children of a friend of his. The main character, Alice, was based on Alice Liddel, one of the girls.
it infuriates me that Miley Cyrus flat-out insulted a fine piece of literature, one that, may I add, was made into a DISNEY film directed by WALT DISNEY himself. This seems outrageous, especially when you facto in that Miley Cyrus, not only a singer/songwriters (technically TWO singer/songwriters) is a DISNEY CHANNEL STAR. She's 16. What the hell does she know about what Carroll did or did not intend for Alice to be based on. We know that Alice began as a story told to a family because records of this exist. Having enjoyed Carroll's books for several years, i find Miley's comments offensive and rude, and I daresay i won't be tuning in to anything of HERS anymore. Till next time,
