WhippingBoy: hammettman: Lionel Mandrake: Meh...it's no Duff Gardens[encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 189x266]As a kid, me and my brother were brought to Busch Gardens in Van Nuys many times. For the uninitiated, Busch Gardens was a marketing vehicle for Anheiser-Busch beers, disguised as an amusement park. A few mediocre rides for the kiddees, and FREE BEER for the adults. It worked like this: there were pavilions spread around the park, which offered 2 samples to each adult. Then you had to get back in line, or move to the next pavilion. Mom didn't drink, but she stood in line to get her 2 samples, which she promptly gave to dad. The only time I ever got lost (separated from my parents for almost an hour) in my life was at Busch Gardens. It took me a few years, but I finally figured it out. After about 5 pavilion visits, in that Van Nuys summer heat, dad was toasted, and mom's primary focus turned from us kids to keeping dad upright./csbEvery vacation should be that good.
