Costume Craziness

Costumed characters are kind of bizarre anyway, considering that they don't talk and all that, but I find it particularly weird how people seem to think kids will want to meet just about any character. I mean, Mickey Mouse I can see, but Great Adventure has Looney Tunes, and Bugs Bunny doesn't strike me as being quite as huggable. Still, that's nothing compared to how Dorney Park has Peanuts characters. I mean, maybe you'd want to hug Charlie Brown to try to get him not to be so mopey, but I'm not sure I can see a kid being all that excited to see those characters, with the possible exception of Snoopy. Anyway, I mention this because bethje and I are planning on going to Astroland before it closes for good, and I noticed that they have a meet-and-greet with the Incredible Hulk. That's just who I want to meet and greet! Some guy who's always getting angry and smashing stuff!

Also, I got the link to this from twobitme:
