    "Upbuckle"

    Am I the only one who reads those signs on the way out of the Resort as "upbuckle" instead of "buckle up"? I am reading from top to bottom!

    The absurdity makes me say the nonsense word out loud half the time.

    I notice that too whenever I leave the resort. I can't say that I've ever read it as "upbuckle", but for some reason the sign has always looked strange to me. Maybe because I use it as a point of focus while leaving the property after having 8,000 drinks at Epcot.

    It makes sense, its kind of like a play on words. You buckle "up," not down, so they put the picture of Mickey buckling his belt above the buckle. I know sounds confusing, but it does make a little sense.

    Anyone else have to say it like "buckfutter!" from Celebrity Jeopardy on SNL?

    Yeah, I figured it was just me. Cracks me up everytime, in my own little world.

    I point them out and tell everyone in the car to "up buckle" every time I'm on property. My fiancee doesn't find it quite as amusing as I though.
