Too Many Beans, not enough Deans

Over the last two days Ali and I were at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando. Orlando is on the cutting edge of two things: Tacky, and dealing with large humans.

First, tacky, go there and get back to me. If the World's Largest Bargain stores don't do it, the $24 parking at Universal will. For dealing with large humans (darn if I didn't forget my camera) but at the roller coasters they had this sign:
"For those of you with extra dimensions, Rows 3 and 6 have modified seating to handle people of extra dimensions." NO SCHMITZ!

Hey, Universal, got anything for this? Turns out they don't Ali felt bad for one lady that was too big for the added dimensions.

Hey, I feel bad for anyone that has this type of issue, but there are certain places that not everyone belongs. For instance, I don't belong at a bridal or baby shower, I've done both in my life, if you ever see me at another, feel bad for me. The butt above doesn't belong on a roller coaster or on an airplane. Sorry, I feel bad, but you just don't belong. You want to belong, you fit the seat, don't make the seat fit you!

Ok, I got home from Universal and shagged it over to Centro Ybor and saw the new film about Dean Karnazes' run or 50 marathons, in 50 states, in 50 days. Dean kept harping on the fact that 33% of America's youth are obese. He thought this was unacceptable. Dean, I agree! And I believe he is out there inspiring people to do more and live better. You go Dean, you go!

Dean said, "if I can get one person off the couch, that's worth more than a million dollars!" Well, I'd like to get some people off the couch too, but I'm not rich like Dean, so my saying is a little different, "if I can get one person to get off the couch and give me two million dollars, that's worth more than a million dollars!"

So, at least Dean and I are on the same wavelength.

I don't belong within 500 feet of a school, but that's for legal reasons.

This weeks assignment...
When they finally make a movie about Andy (like they did for me) who will play the role of Andy?

-Dean Karnazes

Weird Al... you know the one from Married with Dragnet!

I'd like to play AndyMan. First, it would be nice to be beloved instead of envied. Second, for once, that dough boy could get in to shape. C, I'd love to be able to yell at race directors and little kids and not have it hurt my book sales!

-Dean Karnazes

AndyMan said...

Ok, Ed O'Neil was me, but the second Dean, that was the Professor all the way!

Oh, that's rich!

AndyMan said...

Oh, I'd like to play the AndyMan, we could be twins, except he doesn't need the armour.

Christain Bale

AndyMan said...

Damn, that was supposed to be an anonymous Christian Bale post. Gotta get some lessons from the Prof on that method!

Chase Squires said...

I think Danny Devito is a natural to play AndyM ...

Star said...

I'd be fine if someone called me "multi-dimensional" but apparently I'll have to look out for the "extra-dimensional" terminology.

I can't really believe that you went to see the Karno movie. Did you at least go to the adult theater in YBOR and drink some brews while you watched him run around the globe?

AndyMan said...

Star, Yes, we went to YBOR and Jon, Fred and I drank. The Good Doctor and Mary not so much.

Chase, No, no, this movie is about me, not you :-)

Roger said...

Was it one of those movies where the audience gets sprayed with faux sweat to really heighten the experience?

I'm sure he's using the movie to pimp a new cologne.

AndyMan said...

Man, that would have been great. Some Dean spritz. But no, no 4-D stuff. Just a lot of Dean running around with no shirt on looking a little more chiseled than a straight man should.

Chase Squires said...

Exactly, Aman, exactly ... I mean, he does live in San Francisco, right?

Arlene said...

I think that I'll wait for it to come to HBO...
