I was planning to go the rest of my life without being reminded of the existence of Dollywood.

Damn you poster! Damn you straight to hell!

The House and Senate Galaxies are particularly known for this phenomenon.

If you look for gas with a radio telescope you see an enormous blob of gas
And if you look for Anna Nicole with a radio telescope you see an enormous blob.

Well, if it is just us, it would be an awful waste of space.

"Few objects inhabit these regions, where lonely stars, torn from their parent galaxies, live isolated lives before they fade and die alone"

-Sounds like a Star Trek convention...

good headline

Holy crap, three posts in a row defending Dollywood.

Good taste surrenders.

Screw Dollywood. I'd be spending too much of my time in Tennessee's divine pig temples, stuffing my face with barbecue.

AmigaJoe: LMAO.

Our local region of space only being a few tens of thousands of light years across.

Randumb, they're running Fark off the old server.

Believe it or not I booked a weekend at the Lawerence Welk resort in SD with me and some of my friends. Maybe I should have realized that I'm 23 and not 63. Oh well should be fun. anyone ever been?

I hate living in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy.

FarkShadows, you don't need a radio teleschope for that, mate.

err scope not schope

Ya.. unlike Hollywood. But I guess the poster feels like the better person for picking on aging country music stars instead of those who actually do shoot their mouths off.

Dollywood: Bringing even more rednecks to East Tennessee than normal.

Trust me, I grew up near there.

More proof that the Bush/Cheney elitist conspiracy extends into the outer reaches and have plotted to keep those less privileged galaxies from getting their rightfully due quota of stars. Hillary has submitted a bill calling for the government to move stars from the small percent of greedy hoarders and be equitably distributed amoungst the underpriveleged galaxies. Taxes to support this endeavor will be raised to 150% of income.

I do not know about Dollywood, but Dolly herself is one of the most lovable stars out there. She possesses more charm than all of the stars of Hollywood put together.

Plus she is witty. One has to possess wit to come up with this line..."It takes a lot of money to look this cheap!"

And then, of course, are the...

Headline made me chuckle. I worked with some rather country folks in the N. Carolina Piedmont at my last job. Sitting in the break room one day, the subject of honeymooning at Dollywood came up. Of course, I made some snide comment about trailer park amusement parks. The gal sitting there who actually was living in a trailer and had honeymooned at Dollywood failed to see the humor.
