Travelogue The Sequel Part. IV

Who will save us from the evil dog that devours Russian tourists?!





Why, Peanut M&M, of course!



Right after the Blogger dinner, we hit Mama Sbarro's, which is better than regular Sbarro's. What do you want? It's Italian fast food and Procrastinator Junior loves their pizza. He only had a few ravioli at dinner, because Tuesday is pizza night.
Then it was off to M&M's World, because we're touristy like that.


Mister M&M rising...


Mister M&M rising...



You gotta keep on risin'...

That was the Jumbotron outside and this is the inside...



Note the Statue of Liberty M&M. Four floors of cups, t-shirts, special flavored M&M's exclusive to their stores, and all kinds of paraphernalia.

Now, on to my favorite billboard of all time...


Did I mention how much I love this ad? Some people don't, particularly the church right below it.



Mind you, I could've taken a better shot, but I didn't want to bring the camera down to our hotel's fifth floorpool and getting Naomi Junior all geeked up. The ad was directly across the street from the pool.



I took these shots from below. In the same plaza across the street where I took these pictures, this restaurant was in the subterranean courtyard.


I'm not feelin' the whole pie-fi-thing.

The original ad was not going to obscure the butts -- it was modified when that church got wind of the ad and complained.

Eric,

I know, talk about provocation for publicity.

Angel,

I guess the closest one to you is the one in Orlando, Florida. Yeah, the peanut butter ones are better than Reese's Pieces. They had a raspberry flavor that I didn't get to try because again, I was too full.
