We’ve told you before that Robby’s sister,
Ann-Louise, is fascinated by all things Dubai, and has been using it in
cocktail conversation for years, forever telling people Dubai is where she’ll
finally get to star in a TV show (once all the studios are built), Dubai’s
where she’ll live like a princess and never have to pay for anything again
(because she’ll marry some sheik), and Dubai’s where all of her dreams will
come true (with her chief dream, as always, being to never work again and have
everything done for her). ”It’s my playland,”
she says, “the place I just know is meant to be home. While I love
She has, of course, never actually been there.
She gets all her news from old Vanity Fairs

If you lived in Boystown,
you’d know why it’s roll around on the ground hilarious every time Ann-Louise

Frightening she thinks Dubai is a Wonderland, but funny, after having a gay brother for, oh, over 20 years, and surrounding herself almost exclusive with gay dudes in New York, she’s picked up on so little of the lingo.
Ann-Louise is a slow-learner, though.
She’s not alone, apparently, because
whoever’s building all of the giant, enormous, largest-in-the-world, champagne-covered oddities in

We’ve told you before that we firmly
believe the Burj Khalifa,
the current tallest building in the world, is going to collapse within 10
years. It’s already started falling apart. We think it was so
shoddily built that it’s a danger in and of itself…but we can’t imagine men
enslaved to build it would strengthen its structural stability. If you had to
live in a hot shipping crate, and you weren’t being paid for your work, and you
weren’t allowed to go home, would YOU do a good job fastening rivets so your
The Dubai Aquarium Mall is perfect
self-parody. Why build a mall inside an aquarium? Because we can!
Just imagine the horror of all inside as the seams in the acrylic start to pop and salt water floods the Gucci and Prada-strewn marble corridors of the mall…where giant sharks swimming overhead look down at the tasty morsels scurrying away from the water.
What’s interesting is that
But, as soon as police eliminated all the
evidence, the Ministry of Propaganda stepped in and said, “Oh, no, there was no
explosion. All the sharks are swimming nice and are smiling.
Someone spilled a large glass of delicious date juice on the floor and
then a small child thought it had come from the tank, and that is why people
thought there was a problem. That child has been killed and will make no
