Stop Roman Around and Sing!

SUBMITTED BY: Rick Broussard   LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2012) Chorus of the Gods?  Rick’s melodic enthusiasm has little effect on his stiff back-up singers! If you happen to be at Caesar’s Palace, home of one of Evel Knievel‘s most bonecrushing stunts, make sure you keep your wife away from their flirtatious guards. (Rick Broussard, [...]

Your Friendly Neighborhood Crusaders

SUBMITTED BY: Ellie and Michael Mirman   LOCATION: Tel Arshaf (Tel Aviv), Israel (2012) Tourist sites are equally guilty of romanticizing the Vikings, but these Crusaders seem more likely to want to swap recipes than slit your throats!

Regurgitated Waterfall

SUBMITTED BY: Ben Cole    LOCATION: Kauai, Hawaii (2012) So please remind us: What exactly is so romantic about waterfalls?

Two Dimensional Boyfriend

SUBMITTED BY: Noelle Boc   LOCATION: Rumney, NH (2012) At Plain Jane’s Diner, James Dean is just waiting to be swept off his feet by the right woman. And given that he weighs about 9 ounces, it’s not a tough task. (Noelle Boc, a.k.a. “The Kissing Librarian,” most recently locked lips with a Giant Fish.)

The Meanest Teacher in History

SUBMITTED BY: Kathie Fife   LOCATION: Hillsborough, NH (2011) Remember when educators carried rulers and would crack your wrists for chewing gum or misspelling a word?

SUBMITTED BY: Brian Henderson   LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2011) God knows whose giant sweaty foot slipped on this shoe earlier, but it makes a fantastic lounge chair.

Waxual Harassment – The Sequel

SUBMITTED BY: Tacky Tourist Photos   LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2011) If a guy posed with the new Fergie wax museum statue like this, he might be chastised as sophomoric, crass, or perhaps even a little bit sexist. But when you are touching your fake self, it is amazing what you can get away with!

Royal Flush

SUBMITTED BY: Steve Uzdanovich   LOCATION: Caerphilly, Wales (2011) Caerphilly Castle is known for its 13th Century military significance, especially its role in preventing South Wales from being invaded by the imperialistic North Wales (actually we have no idea which Welsh were the good guys or the bad guys).

Channeling Peter Pan

  SUBMITTED BY: Noelle Boc and Isabelle    LOCATION: Orlando, Florida (2011) Just like Buzz Lightyear’s muscle flexing sessions, Peter Pan teaches Walt Disney World visitors how to be confident and sassy.

SUBMITTED BY: Kyle Garnick and Sarah Ekbatani   LOCATION: Westford, Massachusetts (2010) There’s no better way to impress the ladies than to engage in some old-fashioned butterfly role play. (Kyle Garnick and Sarah Ekbatani are hip college students at the University of New Hampshire).
