Yeah, if you've noticed a pattern in the guy's comments on every coaster TV show ever made, it's hilarious.

God help us if N*Sync is still making music in 2014.

That was so hilarious! Whoever wrote that... NICE! I really find that guy annoying, and pretty much everything in the article is so true.

Funny stuff! Gotta love ARN&R. I love this:

"Ruben, North American editor of the almost utterly unread "Park World" magazine..."

Utterly unread! hahaha!

The best article was the one about Six Flags' Fast Pass systems.

Gold, pure Gold!

If he picked Dragster over SFNE's SROS for real, then I will be so pissed.

I felt so DIRTY watching that one coaster show when Paul Ruben said "Rollercoasters are better than sex" ... god that just REALLY freaked me out. The thought that Paul Ruben can COMPARE the two... man.. who would have thought.

And here we see Paul counting his "votes" on how it became his new #1:

That is pretty funny! Actually, Paul Ruben isn't nearly annoying as alot of the coaster people interviewed over the years on various Discovery/Travel, etc. programs. AND, one thing I always thought was pretty cool, and kinda punk, about Paul Ruben... When he gave some conference at CP in like 1978 or 1979, it was a big deal when he said that Gemini WAS NOT in his top 10 coasters. Then CP asked him that again in disbelief, to verify. Guess they couldn't believe it!

ARN&R *does* accept news and rumors from *outside sources*. Just a word to those of you who really DO have a sense of humor. The rest of you, please stick to your typical stuff so we can ignore it based on your SN...;)

BTW, if you couldn't tell from the initilas, the article from the 6th is mine....thankfully, edited for content and to fit in your normal TV viewing window....

bill, hates letterbox format...;)

That's the funniest thing I've seen since Dragster was announced yesterday! I'll have to check back more often since I haven't had that much fun since I saw Kazaam. What a riot!

On a side note(#462), the DWMC? sequel is listed to be named Seriously Dude, Where's My Car? You can also find random N'Sync members with their own CDs, on Moby and Good Charlotte videos, in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and (almost) lost in space. I know what you're saying now. Bring back the Spice Girls!

Yikes, the stab at the ACE newsletter is pretty harsh. Since I'm not an ACE member (and can't see myself ever being one), I appreciated it:)

Trust me, if you were an ACE member, you would appreciate it even more.
