396 Pure, Unadulterated, Dyed-In-The-Wool, 100% Made-Up, Completely Fake Disneyland “Facts” won’t be available in paperback on Amazon for a few weeks, so if you want to order it for everyone on your holiday list you have two options:

(By the way, if you’re a total cheater-pants who likes to see what it is that they are buying, you can use the Amazon link and then click “Look inside” to read some of the book before deciding to raid the kids’ college fund and buy a few cases of ‘em.)

Deborah, who is proofreading and spell checking the final manuscript of 396 Pure, Unadulterated, Dyed-In-The-Wool, 100% Made-Up, Completely Fake Disneyland “Facts” for us, has asked us to pass along this special message:

“The people who came up with the spelling and punctuation used in Disneyland attractions should die in an elevator in the basement of a burning building.”

Thanks, Deborah!

After placing the copious illustrations in 396 Pure, Unadulterated, Dyed-In-The-Wool, 100% Made-Up, Completely Fake Disneyland “Facts”, we realized that we didn’t have enough info on this fellow:

Another question from the team fact-checking 396 Pure, Unadulterated, Dyed-In-The-Wool, 100% Made-Up, Completely Fake Disneyland “Facts”: When Disney announced the Pirates of the Caribbean overlay for next year’s Star Wars Week, they mentioned several characters that would appear in the attraction, including Darth Cutlas, Arr2-D2, and Captain Han Sparrow. Can you remember the rest of their names? And do any of you have a copy of the leaked script for the revised “Buy an Imperial Slave” scene (“We wants the bun-head!” and all that)?

Another question: At the Star Trader shop in Tomorrowland, have they finally gotten replacement Build Your Own R2 Unit parts, or are they still plagued by bad motivators?

Thanks!

We’re deep in the final fact-checking process of putting together our new book, 396 Pure, Unadulterated, Dyed-In-The-Wool, 100% Made-Up, Completely Fake Disneyland “Facts” and could use some assistance.

For many years, Wally Boag was the chief funny man of the Golden Horseshoe Review. As part of the show, he used to tell a very long, very funny joke, the punch line of which was, “The Aristocats!” Can anyone remember how it goes? We can’t recall and we want to mention it in our book. If memory serves, they did a documentary about this joke some years ago, but we can’t seem to find it.

Thanks!
