Dickensian dream or nightmare, you be the judge

I laughed when I saw this article about Dickens World. On the one hand, it’s sort of a tragic way to honor a great author, but on the other, little kids getting rebuked for asking for more cotton candy could be priceless. I am imagining one of those mastercard commercials too. (link stolen from Bookslut, where Michael Schaub has funny things to say about it)
