It's really refreshing to find young people who are willing and able to take the time to dedicate themselves to important causes. not one of them.

Cross-posted from the front-page thread:

"From the theme park that brought you 'Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters,' it's... 'JungleSkipper Dan's Hippo Shoot'!

"It's an entirely new way to experience the Jungle Cruise. Every visitor will be equipped with a special hippo pistol and will win points for every hippo blasted from the water! Get your boat's high score, and you could win 'The Pith Helmet'."

I am *so* entering this in the next Theme Park Apprentice game, by the way. ;^)

And I forgot, don't worry about those hippos after you shoot them. They're only sleeping.
