WHO'S THE DUMBO ...?


It was 'Up, Up and Away' for me today as I stumbled across a Flying Elephant in the courtyard at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. And it wasn't just any Flying Elephant. It swooped-in directly from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. Apparently, before he died, Michael Jackson began selling off bits and pieces of his rides at Neverland. A company called Butler Amusements acquired the Flying Elephant pictured above and the rest is HIStory. Between the Neverland ride and the Gingerbread house, I can't help wondering what the Fairmont will think of next. Far be it from me to criticize, but I have a sneaking hunch that one of the waiters in the restaurant downstairs is Bubbles the Chimp in disguise ...!

How do you know the waiter has hairy legs? Any guy who will take his picture on an elephant is okay with me.
