Scenes from the Jungle Cruise

I love the Jungle Cruise. The wise-cracking skippers, the terrible puns, the goofiness of the entire attraction... they're all just groan-worthy fun.  But what I don't do often is take photos of the ride. Maybe it's because I'm usually at the parks later, when the light is not so great, or because I'm too busy listening for the next punchline, or because the angles for shooting are never great, since you literally have to turn around.  So here are a few shots from one of my favorite rides, complete with cornball spiel!

Ladies and gentlemen, what a treat this is!  We've entered the Elephant Bathing Pool, and it looks like the whole herd is out! That's practically unheard of!  But it's ok, folks. Take all the photos you want. They all have their trunks on.

This, here, is Bertha.  She's been enjoying these falls for sixty years, and it shows.  Look at all those wrinkles!  She really needs to see a pachydermatologist.  And it just goes to show you, kids.  If you take a shower long enough, you'll turn into an elephant.

Shhhh, quiet, everyone!  Don't make any sounds like a banana.  This guy finds it realy ap-peel-ing.  We'd better split!

Here we are at the African Veldt, where the hand of man has never set foot.  Looks like we've got some striped horses, some long necked cheetahs, and... hm, I've never seen those guys on the right before. They must be new.

Oh boy, looks like we've found the lost safari!  See that guy at the bottom? His name's Ahontas.  And it looks like that rhino is going to poke... Ahontas.  It just goes to show you: never get into an argument with a rhino.  He always gets his point across... in the end.

Looks like the local villagers are performing a little ceremony there.  Let me see if I can translate: You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out, you put your left foot in... hmm, sounds like a bunch of hokey pokey to me!
