"Indeed," agreed Gramsci. "The casting of that vacant chick as the 19-going-on-12 year old Alice was a case in point. If they were after naive idiocy - as the results would seem to indicate - why didn't they go the whole hog and settle for Julius Malema?"
"Quite!" the Cow concurred. "And of course, there's only one choice for the Mad Hatter - Winnie Mandela!"
"The shril, petulant Red Queen would be a perfect role for Helen Zille," suggested Gramsci, "and the macabre, malevolent Stayne would have to be that dude from the Freedom Front Plus!"
"That insipid goth girl as the white queen was also neither here nor there," sneered the Cow. "She looked like the bride of Dracula. Since he was on the payroll anyway, why didn't they just give the role to Christopher Lee?"
"But that would leave the Jabberwocky role vacant!" observed Gramsci. "Perhaps they could exhume Betsie Verwoerd, instead?"
"The Bandersnatch must be Jacob Zuma, though" the Cow insisted. "Chasing after young women... and that eyeball, plonked back in at any old angle! There's a distinct resemblance..."
"Plus then uJuJu would get to ride off into battle on the back of uMalume - that does seem rather fitting!" Gramsci mused.
