I Give & Give & Give Because I'm A Giver

I donated a made-to-order Stickman toon for the Duckfest charity auction, which was won by That One Mom over at Only Parent Chronicles. It’s posted over there today. Go see.

Hope everybody is enjoying their summer.

Recently, I attended a local charity auction benefitting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.
JDRF is helping to find a cure for kids with lazy pancreases.
I donated over $175 of my money and still no cure.
I want a refund.

I did win some tickets to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari.
I say win, but I paid $130 for them.
Anyway, Holiday World is an amusement park in Santa Claus, Indiana.
This is in southern Indiana, very close to the Kentucky border, which was evident by all the mullets wearing muscle shirts with cutoff Wranglers I saw.

It was the first time I had ever been to this place, but it was pretty cool.
They have free unlimited soft drinks, with self-serve refill locations all over the park.
They also have free sunscreen locations everywhere too.
Sadly, these were self-serve as well.

It’s a very family/kid friendly park, but they do have some of the bigger rides for thrill seekers.
Basically, the park is divided up into sections themed on the different holidays (like Christmas, Halloween, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, etc.).
Sorry, no Ramadan.
Even family fun parks hate Arabs.

The food and games at the park were very affordable.
My biggest complaint was probably the layout.
Even with a map of the park, it was very confusing trying to navigate the different holidays.
Maybe a calendar would have worked better.
I almost took a picture of the GIANT nativity scene right at the edge of Christmas as you are about to enter Halloween.
Instead of the Christmas star shining brightly in the sky above our Lord and Saviour, it was an evil Jack-o-Lantern looking down menacingly.

Overall, my kids loved it. And now they should repay my kindness by going back to school early.

Unlimited soft drinks? That's where civilizations begin to break down.

I owe you a big and hearty handshake for that wonderfully created Stickman. Loved it.

That is all. Don't expect anymore nice from me for at least 3 weeks.

The stickman is just beyond hilarioius. Of course you'll have to sleep with one eye open if the llama finds it.

Is pancreases a word?

Dual Mom said...

Hilarious is a word, when spelled correctly.

He is my commet left over there: Uh..ED...UM...someone from PETA just called me (I'm on their speed dial because I love animals - steamd, bar-b-q'ed, roasted, grilled, etc)and they wanted your phone number. I told them it was 1-800-EAT-SHIT. But I advise you go into hiding for killing the Drama Llama.

The park sounds pretty cool, too. Wish I had a mullett so I could go.

My favorite is the Kwanzaa Coaster.

That One Mom said...

Holiday amusement park? Santa Claus, Indiana? Who comes up with this stuff? Seriously makes me reconsider admitting I was born in the Hoosier State.

Have I told you lately how much I lurve the cartoon?

Thanks dude. I'll enjoy my summer WHEN IT GETS HERE. Although it's 70 degrees today, now we just need a) sunshine, b) no more rain and c) 80 degrees. I am pissed off. Now to go say hi to Stickman.

Love the stickman. I love the boobs on the stickwomen. Too funny. I got the washboard abs even before it was mentioned. Love the purple shoes and the purple matching purse. You did a lot of work on this one!

Alex said...

* Round of applause *

The stickman film was brilliant...could even figure out who was who.

Daffy said...

What? No free pearl necklaces? What kind of amusement park was it?!?

Barb said...

What a cool dad to take your kids there. They should totally go back to school early!
And I loved the Stickman video!

Just when I thought I couldn't adore you anymore......

Long live Stickman.

The Princess of Sarcasm said...

Chief is a bitch....

Chief said...

Um...a holiday theme park sounds ridiculous.

The Stickman feature though was your best work yet! I still think it's funny every time I watch it. Yes, I am still watching it!

Freakin' June *hiccup*, damn funny!

Alicia said...

that stickman cartoon was friggin hilarious!! i'm still laughing at the washboard abs!

carissajaded said...

Ha! I need to go to a theme park. I really want to go to a water park. It's been too long since I've bathed in pee other than my own.

Tamara aka Cheapskate Mom said...

I heart your stick, man.


Ok I can't take my own joke.

The cartoon was super rad. Except my wiener doesn't hump my leg. He humps his gay lover. His lover is super sad you didn't include him in this special feature and he is demanding you make a Stick Dick cartoon starring him John Holmes style with his lover Oscar.

He says you have until midnight otherwise he is going to find you in the middle of the night and hump your face.

I feel dirty for having to deliver that message.

I hope that Australia day was celebrated at your Holiday Theme park. Just a bunch of guys standing around in budgie smugglers BBQ'ing away.
