Uncle Remus didn’t tell too many stories about ol’ Br’er Chicken, but I know he exists. There is evidence aplenty of his cowardly inclination in the Splash Mountain queue at Walt Disney World.
Have you seen it? Well, I declare, sit right back and let me show y’all:
OK, not too scary yet… get a little wet…
“You may EXIT here”
Now we’re starting to see some real evidence that Br’er Chicken always needs, and has, a way out! Especially when the drop is fifty feet and the ride warnings include the word ‘sudden’. But wait, there’s one more piece of evidence:
OK, Br’er Chicken is out of here! But just what is he so afraid of? Could it be a little of this:
I think it’s a lot of that!
So ol’ Br’er Chicken has left the Brier Patch and headed for tamer free-ranges, but we humans just don’t seem to recognize a good warning when we see one: Fifty Foot Plunge. Sudden Drops. Wet… Bring it on!
