“small world” protest blocked

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

We have received reports that protesters from Save “small world” have been unable to carry out their planned protest along the route of the Olympic Torch. Says the group’s hypothetical leader Blaire Childe, “This other group of protesters kept getting in our way. They had all these signs about Tibet, and we kept trying to tell them that it’s not the Tibet scene that’s in danger, but the rain forest scene. It’s like they weren’t even listening.”

The group will move on to their second protest project, the recording of a new song titled “We are the small world,” which will feature various stars from the world of music singing about how this beloved attraction should be preserved. To date, they have not signed up any singers although, according to rumor, Michael Jackson keeps leaving messages that are never returned.

“it’s a small world” problem resolved (sorta)

There has been quite a bit of controversy recently regarding rumored plans to insert Disney characters into Disneyland’s classic “it’s a small world” attraction (Condorman in Canada, Nemo in the vehicle waterway, etc.)

To address complaints that classic Mary “Mary” Blair characters are going to be displaced by cartoon characters, Imagineers have announced that any displaced characters will find new homes in other Disneyland attractions. Look for tiny foreign children to make ghostly appearances in the Haunted Mansion, float weightless in Space Mountain, and participate in the newly rescripted, “tiki room school room.”
