File this one under the "What were they thinking?" category.

I can see at least two things fundamentally wrong with this ride and I do not mean in an engineering sense!

The question asked, "Who designed this?" I don't know his name but I am willing to bet that by law he is required to notify all of his neighbors he has moved into the neighborhood.

Of course, this is what happens when we let our children be entertained by characters that never wear pants! This perverted duck and that damn Porky Pig are corrupting our children! Then there is that square pants character. Yes he wears pants but not much is left to the imagination! Won't somebody please think of the children!

You know you are getting old when the band in the club starts playing and you are immensely relieved because finally you can let that fart go you have been holding in for the last 20 minutes and no one will be able to hear it. Oh the relief!


If you have not seen it yet you must go to House of Jules and check out the parenting advice and how the moonwalk can be such an instrumental part of child rearing! That is the funniest thing I have seen in quite a while.

that is quite disturbing in a perverted kind of way, aint it? The thing that scares me the most is the look on Donald's face....and just WHAT is he looking at??!!!

Jules said...

1) Is this ride design what actually killed Walt Disney?

2) What parent actually ponied up the coins to pay for this?

3) Why am I laughing so hard?

Also, thanks for the plug!

Yikes! That duck ride is so wrong! I always wondered too why cartoon characters wear shirts and no pants. There's something weird going on, if you ask me.


Rob said...

Beth- Veeeeery disturbing! Now that I think about it that might be a young Paris Hilton on that thing, that is where it allll went wrong!

1. It very well could be!
2. Hey, get OFF of that thing! Why Daddy? Never mind why- just get off of it, NOW. Then I unleash Motherf**king Moonwalk! (Three days later that still cracks me up!

Stacey- Remember- Sharing is caring! And hey, that attitude WILL NOT get your house cleaned! ;)

Anne-You know, we are probably being too harsh. The “flasher” characters are probably real nice folks then that fully clothed Goofy is probably an alcoholic wife beater! I tells ya! ;)

oh my!! dirty donald. and just think, this ride design was chosen over many others, i'm sure. there was probably a 'sit on my bill' donald ride, and a 'you dont need any pants either' donald ride....

Paper Propaganda said...

no i have to say, that i actually agree, this ride is ridiculous. we have one like it in our mall, and i cringe when my kid wants to actually go on it!

I bet someone designed it as a joke, then their boss thought it was a great idea. Since the designer had been having a hard time coming up with something exciting. He let his boss think it was great.

It's so wrong of me, but I can't stop snickering at that ride.

I will never look at Donald Duck the same way again. Remind me the next time I go to Disneyland to stay clear of him.

kay said...

hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! where in the world did you see this? hysterical!

and the look on donald's face. the pervert

Rob said...

Melek- “sit on my bill Donald” ROFL!

Paper Propaganda- Oooo! Send me a picture!

Tanya- You know, I can’t help but wonder if the original design vibrated as well! (remember the Harry Potter Broomsticks?)

Sauntering- Don’t feel bad, it is funny! (I really like your new avatar!)

Tammy- Hey, you’re an adult, it’s OK if you go for a ride! It’s the little girls that make your hair stand up.

Kay- Yeah the look on his face makes the whole picture!

Rob said...

BTW- I have the best commenters! Yawl’s comments are better than the original post!

tammy said...

Ohhh....okay. Bring him on then!

Rob said...

Tammy, for an extra quarter you can even get the “magic fingers”! Woot! :)
