welcome aboard

Ever since my first trip to a Disney theme park, my favorite ride has always been the Jungle Cruise. Like the TV show "Batman," the ride works on two levels: adventure for the kids and comedy for the adults. Of course, it's the corny jokes that I love best. There are several web pages devoted to the Jungle Cruise, including those I found at, and

I vaguely recall hearing once that the tour guides used to have more freedom to improvise than they do nowadays. Of all the scripted jokes, my absolute favorite is not the famous "backside of water" gag, but instead it's a line that I've only heard once: "I don't recognize those animals over there. They must be gnu."
