 The Geeks Bro

Well it's been a while since my last column, and the geek was getting anxious for me to bust out another column filled with witty anecdotes and sarcastic humor. Instead, he's going to get this column.

First, let me thank those of you who took the time to write in encouraging words about my last column, all one of you… Like I read somewhere, if you make just one person happy, you have done your job. My question is what happens if while making that one person happy, you tick off another hundred or so? Oh well, I don't think I ticked anyone off too much, people just don't seem to want to talk to me, and I am ok with that.

Anyways, this is going to be a relatively short column, but it's all I got for now. To my one and only fan, I hope I can call you a fan, I have never had a fan before, and I think it would be really cool to have a fan. No matter, until I hear otherwise, you are my fan. Anywho, I know you requested more on my theory of the Disney Cult, and in time it will come, but for now you will have to suffer my mindless ramblings about other topics. Actually here's a funny little story about the cult theory of mine, I actually wrote a paper on this subject in college. That's how pathetic I am. I took time to actually research, and write a paper on Disney being a cult that is trying to take over the world. Got a B on it if I remember correctly. If the stupid English lit grad student did not had it in for me, I would have gotten the A it deserved… I have been searching for the paper in my archives, but it appears to have gotten lost in the great computer crash of 1998. Such is life.

Now on to the important stuff…

Last time I wrote about the a few good things, some bad things, and a few downright criminal things as I saw them in relation to Disney. Well I don't feel like doing that this time, and since it is my column, I can pretty much do whatever I want. Instead, I am just going to ramble on about various topics that come to mind as I type this out.

First off, I hate strollers, and especially those really wide two to three kid SUV type strollers. You know the ones I am talking about, the ones that are like 10 feet across, with tires bigger than my than a full size truck, enough cargo space for three kids, and all the gear associated with them. Those strollers are evil. Picture this… Imagine if you will, trying to cross the bridge that goes over the entrance to Pirates at Disneyland. Ok, those of you that have been to Disneyland know that this is a congested area to start with, for some reason; at any given moment of any given day there are always a ton of people in that little area of the park. Ok, so you are trying to cross the bridge, but for some reason, no one is moving. Big surprise the reason for the delay is there is a family crossing the bridge with one of these aforementioned beasts. This thing is I swear at least 15 feet wide, and would take up like 2 lanes of traffic on any highway. So we sit there stopped dead in our tracks for like 10 minutes while people try everything in their power to squeeze by on either side. It's not a pretty picture, but it happens almost every day. And if that's not bad enough, why is it that the owners of these strollers cease to realize that it hurts when they run into the back of your legs? My theory is if you can't control the stroller, you shouldn't be driving it…

The Geek tells me the reason I get run into all the time is 'cause people just don't like me. It's probably true, but I got to believe there are others out there that have had similar experiences… If you have a funny stroller story, or really any story, send it in to thegeeksbro@disneygeek.com , I would love to read it, and if nothing else prove to the Geek that I am not the only one.

Well that's all I feel like writing about today. The memories of being run into by strollers are just too much for me to cope with and keep writing, so I am gonna call it quits on this column. Now go and check out some of the other sections of this site. More importantly (Blatant, shameless advertisement to follow) go the library section of this website, and buy one of the books using the links from this site. Everything you buy, we get a small percentage of, and it helps to keep this site running in this "scary" economy. Thank you for your support.
