    Where in JC was Swittzer fall?
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    You know, the back side of water waterfall.

    Over here on the right is something you don't see everyday. But I do. Every seven minutes.
    Up on the left is Switzer Falls. Named after the famous explorer Dr. Albert...Falls.
    Now we are headed down the Nile River, the longest river in Anaheim. And if you don't believe me, you are in de-Nile.

    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    Did you actually put the "..." because you don't know his real name? Dr. Albert Schweitzer- one of the top ten greatest humanitarians in the last 100 years. Corresponded from the jungles of Africa, with some of the greatist minds of his day including Albert Einsten whom he was often mistaken for. He probably even had limited correspondence with Walt, hence the name of the falls.

    No, the elipses is there because that's the joke. Everyone is expecting "Schweitzer Falls" to be named for Albert Schweitzer, but they catch you off guard with Albert...(pause for comic timimg) Falls.

    Anywho..that would be a real tragedy if this turns out to be true. If it is, I hope they work hard to restore it, because the Jungle Cruise just wouldn't be the Jungle Cruise without the backside of water. I mean, geez, that line is so ingrained in my life that when we visited Niagra Falls and took the tour that takes you right up next to the falls, my entire family was just giggling over that fact that were seeing the back side of water!

    Three cheers for edumacationizing!

    I am dumbfounded that no skipper had graced you with that old stale joke.

    Now, whenever you ride it, you'll hear it ALL the time!

    I always get the egomamical skippers---

    *and this bengal tigger can jump up to 25 feet...isn't that amazing, just like your skipper.

    *Here is the back side of water...isn't that amazing? just like your skipper.

    *Ok we're back isn't that amazing? Just like your skipper

    Maybe not so amazing if he never told me the Albert Falls joke! Grrr

    lol- you need to get a female skipper next time- they usually do all the jokes and aren't so self indulgent. Maybe you could even ask her out

    Thats friggen priceless- I was dating a skipper off and on for a while- Then she disappeared. She is very subtle on her tour. Fun stuff- The best skipper I ever had was the overly animated dude. Must have been his first day which sort of ruins the joke " that not something you see everyday, but I do."
