Theme park T-shirt of the day

Published: October 6, 2009 at 3:51 PM

A person I follow on Twitter just sent out the message: "'People make plans and God laughs at them.' I bet He is cracking up today."

Seems an appropriate sentiment for a day in which my coverage plan blew up like a Michael Bay movie.

Or perhaps I should draw my inspiration from a T-shirt:

Boldly going nowhere

Sure, it's from Universal Orlando. But given that that park's half-owner is party to the deal that refuses to happen so I can't cover it, I'm gonna go with it. Sums up my feelings for the day, that's for sure.

Anyone else have any favorite theme park T-shirts they'd like to describe?

Spent the whole day waiting to publish the report on the Busch theme park sale... which didn't come through, despite many, many off-the-record reports from within the company that it would on Tuesday. I had at least four interviews lined up... all of which didn't happen.

So, in short, I spent the day boldly going nowhere.

I used to like the ones from universal that said thing 1, thing 2 etc... But they need to retire those for a while, way to many identical things running around, lol.

At least you stirred up a debate with your article.

Love the shirt, too. A little Photoshopping and you could have your BEC shirt, but I am not that attuned to PS.

I bought my husband one that he loves to wear under his police uniform. It is a black shirt from Animal Kingdom. In large letters it says, "I'm Surrounded By Idiots". On the back it has a small Scar (bad guy from Lion King). He laughs and says if only the criminals could see what he is wearing...
