The hilarious thing to me is how the author descibes the attractions. She especially misses the mark with Stone Mountain. Longest running doesn't mean how long the laser show is, but how many seasons it's run. And I'm pretty sure a hand-tossed roll doesn't mean they throw it at you! And at Coca Cola you don't taste multiple flavors of Coke from around the world, but different flavors of soda that happen to be manufactured by Coke, each subscribing to the tastes of the particular culture. And some of them were way different-(ick)- but a lot of them made me wish we could get them here.
We loved Atlanta, and not just because of SFOG.
You can't enjoy any other attractions except amusement parks.
So you must visit the same park a week straight.
Gag me, I can see that stuff at home, bro.
The way she describes different flavors of Coke just proves she is a Southerner. You folks from up north may ask people "would you guys care to have a soda(or pop)?"; but down here we say "ya'll want a Coke or somethin?"

RCMAC (straight-up Yankee) stands corrected. He assumed foolishly that the hand-tossed roll would be akin, say, to the hand-tossed pizza. He had no idea that in the South they throwed the roll right at you. Sounds like a knee-slappin' good time, though. But what is the protocol should he miss the throwed roll and it hits the floor? Please advise before he embarrasses himself further. He loves his rolls so, no matter how they are delivered.
He also knew (from watching Andy Griffith) that y'all say coke for everything except for maybe sweet tea. But he forgot. He was further confused by the exhibit that labeled the global varieties of pop (we say pop here) not as coke, coke, and coke, but... but... well he can't remember all those foreign names, there were, like, 60 of em and most of them were rib-ticklin' good, though none tasted like coke. er, Coca Cola.
Anyway, he sheepishly begs forgiveness, and promises to investigate matters further before he starts into typing directly.
He still recommends the various attractions in Atlanta.

I guess it is a southern thing.
We also have that in Houston http://www.potatoepatch.com/
If you miss a toss the protocol is they will pick it up, trash it (We Hope) and then come over to your table and hand deliver one to you. Here I am amazed at the skills of the tossers, sometimes 100 feet away and they land it right in your hands. You almost cant miss. *** Edited 6/24/2008 3:21:27 PM UTC by Markieb***
