The other day Dude watched "The Triplets of Belleville" which is an 2003 Academy-award winning film for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. A bizarre film that was enjoyable in parts. Besides the amazing use of perspective and 3D animation, the thing that caught Dude's eye was the filmmaker's observation of Americans as grossly obese. Now what does this have to do with Dude's trip to Disney World? Dude is convinced that the filmmaker did his research at the Magic Kingdom.

Without degenerating to an "Angry Krusty" bit from "The Simpsons", Dude was surprised to see the sheer volume of "Potato Chip-Challenged" individuals waddling down Main Street USA. The only thing worse was the use of Strollers as traffic control devices, wedging their way through crowds and clipping the ankles of many a pedestrian.

Still, the Dude's girls had a very nice time for the three hours we spent there yesterday. They met Ariel the mermaid as well as had a conversation with Peter Pan.
