So on our trip we got to see Tinkerbell this time around. It was weird because her "guy fairy" was with her taking pictures and Megan didn't want to take it with him in the picture. So I had to be "that guy" and tell the male fairy to back away from my woman.
....Hmmm.... I suppose that could be taken in a totally different way.... nevermind!

Say goodbye to all of your favorite characters as you knew them in the DC universe!
If you didn't already hear the news, starting in September, DC will be REVAMPING all their characters and starting every comic book at #1. This is such a horrible tragedy I don't know where to begin.
First off, classics like Detective Comics and Action Comics have been around for about #900 issues. I was looking forward to buying a legitimate #1000th issue in 4 years but now... nothing. It's like an undefeated streak coming to an end just before hitting a legendary milestone!
A sad day for the comic book world indeed. Now if you're buying books get ready for the "new", "hipper" young twenty something, Batman, Superman (with new costume... again)and all the others... I'm going to go throw up now.

Whoa, that was way more post yesterday than I thought it would be. I'll only post 2 vids today. The next one will be up around lunch.
These clips are just of a few costumed people we saw around Animal Kingdom. When one blows Megan a kiss Megan refer's to Oz (my nephew) who for some reason LOVES Megan.
Though I have no idea why... : )

So whenever we go somewhere, I always like to try new places. So the first place we went to was right down the road. Dunkun Doughnuts. It was a really good place and I think they have the best doughnuts I've ever eaten! (this includes Krispy Kreme)
Anyway, here's a short bit on what I had.

So it's been a month since our vacation and I'm just now getting around to posting our videos from it.
Here's when we first arrived and saw Charity for the first time. Megan's not faking in the video here, for some reason she's sincerely happy to see Charity.
Me? I was just hoping to get some water works from her...and I did!

Ay, Yi, Yi, Yiiiii.... look at the Frito Bandito!
Man used to be a legend until he was deemed too "racist" and forced into retirement. Why racist? The guns, the gold tooth (not shown in this picture) and the fact that he'd try to "steal" your fritos. Absolutely ridiculous. I wish they could make fun of a "white guy" somewhere.
You know, make him... I don't know, dumb, arrogant, clueless, take your pick! Make fun of us to your hearts content and guess what? I wouldn't be offended. At all. Like I said, totally ridiculous.
Joe Camel. Forced into oblivion for being too appealing to children.
Look at this guy. He looks more ridiculous to me than cool. How could a kid look at this and say "OOH! I want to smoke too!!"
No, they want to smoke for other reasons. To be rebellious, look "cool", influenced by their favorite on screen action hero, who knows! There are a million reasons why a kid would want to smoke... Joe the Camel wasn't one of them.
Ok, I've said my piece. We'll move on to something else tomorrow!

So I'm sure some of you have heard this by now, but there's a group fighting McDonald's to "retire" their mascot Ronald because he promotes child obesity.
One of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard! (by the way, weren't we all supposed to die last Saturday?) First off, clowns are NOT in. Kids don't like clowns these days, they're more afraid of them, than love'em.
Plus, I'm amazed no one's pointed a finer at the real culprit here... the parents. They act like these kids can get in a car, drive to Micky D's and order themselves a Big Mac off their parent weekly allowance. HELLO!! It's the parents of these kids that are the ones making the bad choices for them.
"Oh, but it appeals to the children!" you say. Ok, so do toy commercials, movies and a million other things, but as a parent you can say "No." to that, right??
So why don't the parents own up and blame themselves instead of a fast food restaurant which even the biggest of idiots can tell you they don't deal in health food products?!
Some days I just don't get it.
If your a parent, YOU control what your children eat. As kids, we hardly went out. Mom cooked us some pretty mean meals but they were healthy and the right thing for us to eat. (even if we didn't like them from time to time) Going out was a treat for special occasions.
Now lazy parents run by the fast food place every evening because it's easier to do that than cook. I'm not saying it's wrong to do that from time to time when you've had a busy day, but EVERY DAY? Yeah, that's an issue.
Just to let you know, I have no special interest in McDonalds. I just hate when people try to pass the blame onto somebody else for something that is ultimately their own fault.
Tomorrow we'll look at a few other silly decisions against corporate mascots!
