Flash Mountain

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've been hard at work. Take that anyway ya want ya perverts. So in keeping with that idea I present this from an LA Times blog...

Call it an unexpected consequence of the bad economy: A recent round of staff reductions at Disneyland could result in the return of embarrassing episodes of public nudity at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Way back in 1997, a front-page story in the Los Angeles Times chronicled a scintillating Internet phenomenon involving the Anaheim theme park’s Splash Mountain log ride: Photos of women flashing their breasts at an automatic camera that snapped souvenir photographs during the final 50-foot drop were “unzip-a-dee-doo-dahing” their way around cyberspace, earning the ride the dubious nickname “Flash Mountain.”

Over the ensuing decade, objectionable pictures of breast-baring women were “washed away” by Splash Mountain photo editors before they were projected on preview screens at the end of the ride, according to David Koenig, author of “More Mouse Tales: A Closer Peek Backstage at Disneyland.”

Disneyland officials confirmed that Splash Mountain photo screeners would be redeployed to other positions as of May 3.

HA! I'm not surprised (though to be honest I wasn't aware of this until now). So watch out for that nudity and enjoy some good old fashioned Disney racism on Splash Mountain. (Now you all know I could care less about Song Of The South being racist. I'm not only notPC but am blatantly against PC behavior in most cases. I just couldn't resist the jab.)
