Don't know what Lewis Carroll meant, but the latest Alice movie had a really 
fine Jabberwock---not the way I pictured it, but great fun! In fact, the 
whole movie was great fun. Of course, I'd watch Johnny Depp and or Helena 
Bonham-Carter watch paint dry....and anything Tim Burton does has my 
attention. Guess I'm a serious case of arrested development, liking twisted 
versions of old classics like Alice in Wonderland and Sweeney Todd. Oh, no, 
wait, they were twisted to begin with! Never mind.

And about that Cheshire Cat....Now that is a strange Caterday.
