Wake N’ Blog For March 31st: The ‘Little People’s Kingdom’ Of Dwarfs in China Is The Coolest Theme Park Ever!
Wake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s morning link dump. Today, I am reminded of a quote from the great Herodotus: “It is said that as many days as there are in the whole journey, so many are the men and horses that stand along the road, each horse and man at the interval of a day’s journey; and these are stayed neither by snow nor rain nor heat nor darkness from accomplishing their appointed course with all speed. The appointed course here at the Sportress of course largely consists of a bevy of dickjokery. You get what you pay for, I guess. Send tips to firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Who is going to China with me? Via a report from Reuters: “The park, near Kunming city in Yunnan province, employs 108 dwarfs from across the country, who twice daily gather on an artificial hillside to dance and sing for tourists.” Awesome. Of course, some negative nabobs of negativity are accusing the theme park of human rights violations. Have these people ever been to Disney World? [Yahoo!/Reuters]
