People fall into one of two categories: 1) Those who want to vacation in Europe. 2) Those who want to vacation in Disney World. Which one are you?
As a child, anthropomorphic cars and animals, and magic spells bringing you happy endings were captivating to us. But as we grew up our tastes got more refined and our enthusiasm for Disney went Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Bye-Bye. Well, that happened to some of us.
Who says you still can't enjoy the magic of Disney as an adult? Apparently, a lot of people.
YouTube channel CollegeHumor recently posted a hilarious video of a diametrically opposed couple discussing vacation options over a dinner date.
After amassing extra funds from a bizarre settlement, the woman proposes the couple take a vacation together. Assuming they're on the same page, the young man eagerly asks with eyebrows raised, "You thinking what I'm thinking?"
They both inhale in unison and then simultaneously answer completely different responses. She says, "Europe." He, of course, says, "Disney World."
After an awkward pause, the woman tries to keep her cool as they both try and make a strong case for their destination choices.
WOMAN: Um, I was thinking we could see the world and experience new cultures.
GUY: Like at EPCOT!
WOMAN: No, like uh, expand our minds.
GUY: Like an Imagineer!
WOMAN: Somewhere like Spain, France, or Germany.
GUY: ...like at EPCOT.
When she finally asks the dreaded question of why anyone would ever "willingly want to go to Florida," he comes clean and decides to reveal his true mark of a Disney geek. He flashes his inked arm of "Grumpy" with the inscription, "This is my happy face," in the classic Walt Disney font modeled after the entrepreneur's signature.
The woman is revolted and struggles to keep her food down, uttering, "Eww, I've had sex with you!"
He proudly declares, "It is the mark of my people. The mark...of House Mouse."
After waxing poetic about Disney's influence on him as a child from his annual pilgrimages to Disney World, he schools her on Disney verbiage like referring to "cast members" instead of as employees. "It sounds like a cult," she says.
He defends the Disney magic, explaining, "Just because I was indoctrinated as a child, I ignore all the bad parts about it and yield fully to its influence does NOT make it a cult."
So who acquiesces? And are you the guy or the girl in this scenario?
