Slumdog fantasy

Someone was telling me, the other day, about "Slumdog Millionaire" and what a great movie it is. Uh-huh. It's Another Great Movie I think I'll Miss. A guy just happens to win a kajillion rupees on on a millionire TV show, after coming out of one the world's worst slums. Just like real life. A virgin whore becomes a virgin over and over again, courtesy of miracle surgery. Sure, happens all the time. A big happy Bollywood dance number and Everyone lives happily ever after. Yup, I see it happen around me all the time. Happiness is only a few dollars away.

Are they fucking serious? This is like the whore with the heart of gold; the lesbian who goes straight after meeting just the right guy; the god descending from heavenly thrown and making everything just dandy. It ain't the way things work. No.

Can you, by the way, imagine how those slums smell? No, the theatres don't give you scent-o-rama. Just bullshit-o-rama.
