Florida Dreaming

I'm dreaming up funny things right now. No, not brainstorming, I'm actually thinking up little comedy bits while I'm asleep. I actually woke myself up this morning laughing. This is probably because I've been working so hard and have public relations on the brain right now.

Now, to those of you who've been around here for a while, this probably comes as no shock. You're thinking, "No kidding. We know you kill yourself. If only we got some of that humor every now and then." So here it is. What I was dreaming of and woke up with giggles at.

Universal Orlando announced that it's going to start building a Harry Potter theme park. (Because Orlando needs some tourism, it's practically a ghost town most weekends.)

Universal has also announced a partnership with the Department of Motor Vehicles. Because it was the only way they could figure out how to make the lines move slower. Maybe not even at all on some days.

Yeah, in the cold, hard type of Blogger it doesn't seem nearly as hilarious. A joke about the DMV and slow lines? That's never been done before. Maybe you needed to see the Hogwart's crest on a surly DMV lady to appreciate the nuance of the joke. Or maybe I'm just slowly going nuts?

If dreaming of PR jokes is wrong, I don't want to be right.

The Harry Potter theme park is de facto also going to host the annual "largest group of virgins" conference every year.

Slowly? Going nuts? heehee! Someone sounds overworked. :)

Chunks, I think the problem was we all got tricked into doing 5 days of work in only 4 days down here in the States.

On a serious (and envious) note, I wonder how much JK Rowlings will make on the copyright/royalties/spinoffs. I'm sure she uses $100 bills (or £100 notes) on her toilet paper roll.

T, do you ever watch Robot Chicken? They did a vignette called (approximately) Dicks Who Time Travel, and one guy goes back in time and deliberately advises a down-and-out, garbage-picking Rowling to write a book not about a school for wizards, but something completely lame (I forget what) == and she trots off, all happy, and he snickers...

I love Robot Chicken.

I will admit to being enough of a geek that I'm looking forward to the episode in late June that's all about Star Wars.

I dislike Harry Potter and roller coasters--it's a match made in hell. But good for them.
