    My childhood was a lie. Despite the evidence displayed in the 1958 Disney orchestrated documentary “White Wilderness”, lemmings do not commit mass suicide. What other lies has The Mouse told us?

    More on the Disney lemming sham from Wikipedia:

    "Perhaps the most influential and, for the lemmings involved, tragic presentation of the myth was the 1958 Disney film White Wilderness, which won an Academy Award for Documentary Feature and in which producers threw lemmings off a cliff to their deaths to fake footage of a 'mass suicide,' as well as faked scenes of mass migration. A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation documentary, Cruel Camera, found the lemmings used for White Wilderness were flown from Hudson Bay to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where far from 'casting themselves bodily out into space' (as the film's narrator states), they were, in fact, dumped off the cliff by the camera crew from a truck. Because of the limited number of lemmings at their disposal, which in any case were the wrong sub-species, the migration scenes were simulated using tight camera angles and a large, snow-covered turntable."

    Well for starters mice don't talk...OK maybe they talk, but not in a language, at least, I can understand. What nonsense...talking animals indeed.

    The children love talking animals. Walt Disney didn't become a multi-billionaire for nothing you know!!! 😉

    I've heard for many years that Walt's head is cryogenically preserved and stored below Cinderella's Castle at Walt Disney World.

    That's a lie.

    It's actually below Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland in Anaheim. 🤔
