JUDGE JULIA: Miss Francis. Do you wish to cross examine Mr. Farkle?
FRANCIS: Most assuredly and most briefly too, Your Honor.
JUDGE JULIA: Proceed then.
FRANCIS: With your permission Your Honor, first I am going to ask the two individuals in the rear of the courtroom to rise.
JUDGE JULIA: I will allow it for now.
FRANCIS: Thank you. (She points to the a man and a woman. They rise.) Mr. Farkle, do you know the two individuals who are standing?
FARKLE: I am afraid not.
FRANCIS: They are members of DWD. Do you know the group?
FARKLE: Actually I have heard of them. Disney World De-Programmers. They are hired to take in individuals who may be too preoccupied with Walt Disney and Walt Disney World and help them stay clear of their so-called addiction.
FRANCIS: Mr. Farkle, do you consider yourself a candidate for DWD?
FARKLE: Of course not.
FRANCIS: I wonder Mr. Farkle, can you tell me the capacity of the Men’s Room in the American Adventure Pavilion?
FARKLE: Yes, it has 6 stalls and 12 urinals, it …
FRANCIS: Thank you Mr. Farkle. Your Honor no more questions.
Is it possible to know TOO MUCH about Disney? Do YOU know someone who is too preoccupied with Disney (and is that a bad thing??)
Rich may be the only blogger who; had an ORIGINAL Davy Crockett coonskin cap (and wishes he still had it); watched Disney’s Wonderful World of Color in black and white; watched the Disneyland opening ceremonies on that same black and white; AND rode the original It’s a Small World in the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. In addition, he is a college professor, and a grandfather of six whom he is thoroughly dis-doctrinating as often as possible.
