Fun Find Friday

June 17, 2011
Dinoland, USA, Disney's Animal Kingdom

I told you back on April 22nd that our story in Dinoland, USA was just beginning. This area has so much detail and story going on it's incredible. Today we'll be making a quick pit stop at gas station turned souvenir shop run by Chester and Hester.

During our last trip through this area I pointed out Chester and Hester have several fun finds up their sleeves for us, but before we get into that, let's do a little back story on this couple. Chester and Hester were your typical married couple. Happily married couple with rhyming names just trying to figure out how to make a living in this crazy world.

Well, luckily for them, Diggs County, the area we are in, found dinosaur bones back in 1947! Well hot diggity! The quiet couple that ran the local gas station saw the potential to sell the tackiest things imaginable in order to make a living. They knew all tourists coming to the area would respond well to anything and everything related to dinosaurs and one of their greatest sellers was fossil foam!

What was fossil foam? It seems to be some sort of anti-itching cream. Of course, they knew they'd have to make an advertisement for their money maker and they saw the front porch as the perfect location. There they put up the following sign (which they tied into the dinosaur theme):

Rough Scaly Skin Making You Groan? Don't Despair! Use Fossil Foam!

Our Fun Find Friday doesn't end here however. In fact, the greatest find here requires a question for all the readers out there. When you think of Florida, what is the one place you think of? There's the obvious: Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Of course some people who stumbled across this page may say things that don't seem to make as much sense like the Space Center, the ocean, Grandma and Grandpa's winter home, those other places with attractions, or the set of the W.E.D.nesday Show (I guess that would be more obvious)!

However, there is one place that Chester and Hester believe you should be sure to visit. What is it? Well, take a walk to the other side of the porch and look at the other side of the Fossil Foam advertisement to find the following sign written on the back side:

When in Florida be sure to visit EPCOT

So there you have it! When in Florida you should be sure to visit EPCOT! And if you need to get rid of that rough scaly skin, make sure you visit this extremely tacky gift shop for Fossil Foam and other great fun finds! You know we'll be visiting it in the future for some of both!
