Like Hollywood Westerns and dime novels, these theme parks propagate a particular myth of “the West.”

I prefer the Kool Moe Dee Wild Wild West to the Escape Club Wild Wild West, and anyone who disagrees is wrong or a snowflake or a fascist or something.

Note to self: never write a song and title it "Wild Wild West" because it will assuredly suck.
