Dorian: Obnoxious? Depressing? Terrifying? Deeply embarrassing on a global level?
Beau: Long… And in that long year, our patriotic neighbor in Liberty Square still remains closed.
Dorian: To the disappointment of no one.
Beau: Now, now, Dorian, The Hall of Presidents has been with us since opening day of The Magic Kingdom. It should get some reverence for at least that.
Dorian: And it’s abundant supply of air conditioning.
Beau: The Imagineers have been hard at work updating the current show, which includes everything from the technology used, to the film and narration.
Dorian: Yes, because you can’t have a “one of us” message when you’re focusing on someone who uses a golden chamber pot.
Beau: … I’m skipping to the end of my speech. Dorian, do you have a welcoming gift for our new neighbor for when The Hall of Presidents finally re-opens?
Dorian: I do, actually. It’s a fruit basket.
Beau: It’s, uh, a very large collection of tomatoes.
Dorian: Tomatoes are a fruit, Uncle.
Beau: They look quite… uh… moldy.
Dorian: Well, I’ve been holding onto them for a long time, Uncle. I mean, I thought the show would be running again much sooner. But I’ve kept them in a warm place so as to keep them as fresh as possible… In that wet, soggy, dark corner by the pool.
Beau: And you’re planning on handing these over to our new neighbor?
Dorian: Well, not “handing over” exactly. Some random fellow such as myself giving a soggy crate to a president would be suspect, I imagine. Those poor gents in Secret Service have been so overworked lately. My plan was to gracefully toss them so as to be expertly caught.
Beau: You are planning on throwing rotten tomatoes–
Dorian: Gracefully tossing a fruit gift basket–
Beau: At the stage of The Hall of Presidents…
Dorian: Only at the newest member, Uncle, as a welcoming gift. I’d be remiss as a representative of Liberty Square to not properly welcome our new inhabitant.
Beau: … They do have a nice heft to them.
Dorian: I know, right? Tremendous heft. The best heft.
I had a dream that was a bit of a Once Upon a Time/Muppets crossover.
For the record, I don’t know where the Once Upon a Time story is now, (last I saw was half of the season with Maleficent in it) so I have no idea what’s happening with the characters now.
In this dream, I’m watching TV when a promo for the new Once Upon a Time episode comes on and it starts with Emma Swan entering a bar where there’s a this guy playing a piano. (I didn’t process it at the time but I realized when I was awake he looked like @beach-bummer-jellyfish‘s interpretation of Rowlf the dog as a human) He basically spots Emma and introduces himself.
“Evening. Names Rowlf. Some friends and I just drove in from Hollywood.”
But that’s not the best part of this dream. The best part of the dream is where Henry is approaching a large vehicle that has a lot of smoke coming from it, seeming to have had a major breakdown, and when the smoke clears, we see that it’s the Electric Mayhem bus.
Then I woke up, part of me like “What the heck!”, the other part of me like, “No! I wanted to see more!!!”
IT'S THE MUPPET SHOW *kermit spends a minute and a half yelling and destroying the set. when he finishes the set is promptly replaced and rowlf walks out from behind a curtain and sits on the show's sole guest chair*
