    Smile My Dumb Little Pet Peeve With California Adventure...

    ...I can't stand all of the cheesy play on words for all of the restaurants and attractions. Some of them are confucing at best, and down right irritating at worst. Half of them need some serious though to ascertain the true meaning.

    1. Maliboomer - Malibu + Boomer (Just figured this out last week)
    2. Award Wieners - Award Winners (eewww)
    3. Pizza Oom Mow Mow - (Lame song, lamer name)
    4. Bur-r-rbank Ice Cream - Burbank Ice Cream(R-r-r-really cheesy)
    5. Catch a Flave - (a flave or THE Flave?)
    6. Engine Ears Toys - Engineers Toys (Moderatley cute)
    7. Man Hat n' Beach - (Where's this "man"? And where is the beach? And why is Manahattan Beach even famous in the first place.
    O.K., I'm done venting.

    It's a THEME park, thus the use of a theme(s), not Cal Tech. Enjoy!

    Too close to alluding to Flava Flave (aka "The Flav")

    It's not dumb at all. Weak thematic elements in the Park are being compensated for by tacky signage "word play". I love DCA, and wish it would grow up and be Disney, already.

    Did it really appear necessary for you to give us the "formulas" for all of the DCA attractions / eateries names? (..."just figured this out last week..." Really? Did you spend a LOT of time on this one?). I am sure that the Designers contemplated "Hot Dog Stand" and "Ice Cream Cones" as names for these places, and somehow thought that something that added a little Fun Pun might be appreciated... you know, for the tourists...

    I'm going to be sleeping with the light on...

    I giggle about Award Weiners too. I tried to have my wife hand me a blue ribbon there, but she refused.

    I always thought it was cheesy and campy but kind of fun.

    Maybe we should have things labeled like a first grade classroom.
