Smile, You Son Of A Bitch!
So Universal had announced that they are closing the "Jaws" ride at Universal Orlando effective on January 2, 2012. This news makes me very sad. I have a personal connection with this ride, as when I first moved to Orlando I was a skipper on said ride. It was a fantastic experience and I had a blast shooting that shark 50 times a day. Pun intended.
As it happens, Ken was on my boat at one point and I used his name for the skipper on the sunken boat in my act. I thought it was clever, leave me alone. So as "Jaws" goes the way of the "Ghostbusters" stage show and "King Kong" lets hope that they don't replace it with another boring thing like "Twister", damn that attraction sucks. So everyone remember to keep your hands and feet inside the boat at all times.
I never had to wear that stupid hat, just in case you were wondering. Also as we are talking about one of the best movies ever, this made me chuckle. Thanks to Steve Niles for finding this gem.
So folks how do you feel about this news? Ever been on the ride? As always Let Your F'ing Voice Be Heard in the comments or on our facebook page. "Farewell and adieu to you, Spanish Ladies..."
