19% Of Amusement Parks Are Fraidy-Cats

Got plans for Halloween? Want some?

Associated Press reports, in the most perfunctory fashion imaginable, that 81% of American amusement parks will be offering some Halloween-themed experience this year. Less than half of them were doing this fifteen years ago, which means that the devil is winning I suppose. Get thee behind me, devil!

Anyway, click on the link and it lists every single one of 'em.

I still don't know what I'm going to dress up as this year, but it will probably utilize the long black wig that I have in storage. Oh what the hell, I'll be Dave Grohl. That's settled. Now to design candy-avoidance strategies.


  1. Um, I've always heard "Hang a lantern on it" in the sense of "If you want the audience to notice it, hang a lantern on it." Not "hang a lantern on it" so you *don't* notice it.

    Does it actually work the other way?

    Could explain what I've been doing wrong all these years :)

  2. I'm going to try to cover this in detail in the next few days, because it's so interesting.
