1. Tinkerbell is not a princess
2. How did Ariel get up to the SECOND floor when all she has is flippers? Did they make it a handicapped-accessible chicken ranch or did she have to drag herself up the steps with her arms?
BTW, along similar lines, I got a Disney Catalog yesterday...STILL nothing good in it, but for the FIRST TIME, I saw a disabled person in one of their pictures. It was a woman who used a wheelchair, as part of the ad for the Family Trip To Disneyland shirts. Toys R Us has been using physically and developmentally disabled kids in their catalogs for years, JC Penneys has been using people who utilize wheelchairs for just as long in theirs...and NOW Disney introduces one person.
What the *uck is that?!?! Chicken ranch?!?! Ok, maybe more like Disney's "Best Little Whorehouse" playset. Where is the pimp doll? Maybe they could also call it "Heidi's place" playset...or "Princess Sorority fun" playset...
Disney really has whored out the princesses, haven't they?
Bill, sources say that when the photo of the chicken was taken, she was being chased by Friar Tuck. Yep. He and the Sheriff of Nottingham along with Goofy, Gaston, and Doc were seen leaving the ranch last night.
I think I need to get down on my knees and pray to the Blue Fairy for forgiveness for being a tattle-tale.
Friar Tuck, Sherrif of Nottingham, Goofy and definitely Gaston, I could see. But I always thought Doc was loyal to Snow White. Does she know? Cuz she was at the chicken ranch too. I'm sure Belle wouldn't mind Gastin paying attention t someone else, but poor Snow White! Then again, she has 6 other dwarves to choose from and maybe she didn't like brainy ones...made her look bad ("Oh look! Some ugly old lady is offering me a magic wishing apple. I've never heard of a magic wishing apple before. Let me eat it.") I can see that the Cinderella chicken is so upset that she's losing feathers left and right...but Eisner's right behind her, collecting the feathers so he can sell them on ebay.
Bean, you ARE a silly goose! If Eisner had a choice of spending money to repair Tiki Birds (still have to pay the contract repairmen) or leaving Tiki Birds to rot and making money on eBay, which do you think HE would choose? :-
Beats the hell outta me. I stopped doing pins about 2 years ago...I'm on hiatus until the whole Pin Thing slows down to a dull roar so I can go back to buying everything. There's just way too many out there and they're making people jump through too many hoops to get 'em, IMHO, so they've lost my business.
When I was still buying pins, the backs were metal and occasionally rubber. Haven't seen plastic ones, though.
"Disney" and "life" and "pin collectors" only go together in the sentence below.
Disney pincollectors need to get a life.
Sorry about misdirecting this thread Bill
It was a free pin that I was handed after I paid for our CHICKEN (as in Chicken ranch) and Pot Roast. It was Ariels Grotto Pin from DCA and had nothing to do with the Plaza Inn. Go figure.
Yes, let's get this thread back on track and not make a mockery of Bill's Chicken Ranch thread. Let's have some respect, people.
Now in all seriousness, who else has been visiting the Chicken Ranch? I got to see it in person at the Disney Store over the weekend. The manager saw me looking at it and came over and said "That's the only one we have left". ;D
Wow...an item to see at The Disney Store? Oh, silly me...it's a Princess thing and it's aimed at 4 year olds. Of course it's at TDS.
Did I tell ya'll that when I went up to NY a few weeks ago, I visited "my" old store at the Staten Island Mall? The store I worked in for 20 months, that was my pride-and-joy-hobby-job? I wanted to cry when I was there, when I saw what they've done to it.
