To me, there are limits to how much "fan" one can be, and they were crossing those limits by far.
Do tell, please.

Cool

It sounds like two pscychiatric hospitals are missing some patients.


I really shouldn't make light of this because I know that mental disorders are a very serious subject matter. If anyone wishes to learn more about them then please take a Abnormal Psychology class at your local community college.

THe Tattoo man was at the HDDR the night we went back in August. I din't approach him as I wasn't sure if he was ok with that. Anyway he was allowed in early to the show ahead of all the other guests...

But if EVERY piece of clothing is completely covered in Disney, you wear 10+ pounds of pins on you and you wear the most clownish hat, in order to put 3+ pounds pins on that, you might come close...

It's possible it are nice people, but it was way over the top and I would have been embarassed to be seen with them

I saw what I would describe as a goat-man in Frontierland last year. Its hard to describe what this guy looked like. I guess I would have to say that he looked a lot like Lucy's friend in Narnia. Anyway, I only saw him for a moment, and didn't want to be rude and take pictures. The guy gave me the willies just to look at him.

I wondered if it was a disease, and don't want to offend anybody, but it was really strange!

Towel babies and teddy bears?

Two words...Baker Act.


On second thought perhaps I will blame every WDW faux paus on Towel Baby. That smell in the elevator...musta been Towel Baby. Flash photos being taken in a dark ride....you guessed it, Towel Baby.

Towel Baby is a very unique couple, although I have not seen them, I have heard plenty of stories on my entertainment CPs. The way I always heard it, both of the people have some kind of mental challenge (possibly mental retardation). They lost a child in infancy, and now they carry the towel baby around. They want the CMs to treat the child as real and get upset when they don't. For the most part they are harmless.

I have not heard of Tattoo Guy or Yeti Man. My "favorite" by far is Linda Skywalker (although I hear these days she likes to be known as Linda Effron.)

I have to ask, does Linda believe she was in SW, or that she is married to the actor who played Luke [and them wouldn't she be Hamill?] or is it something else and y'll just nicknamed her Skywalker [now maybe Effron]?

She legally changed her last name to Skywalker, would come for all of the Star Wars Weekends (and then some) with her own homemade outift, and would constantly visit Luke and Leia. A few years ago she "divorced" Luke and started fixating on Ron Stoppable. I've heard that at that time she liked to be known as Linda Stoppable, but I don't think she legally changed her name again. Right now I've heard her new fixation is High School Musical and she wants her last name to be Effron.

Well, towel parents must not be too bad off mentally if they can have the money to stay in GF for a month at the time. It takes all kinds.........................
