BEWARE OF TOURISTS!

Spring is here and summer is near.
Comes that time of the year
Tourists can be a pain in the rear.

But some are like me, so be of good cheer —
I’m not as ill-bred as I may appear
(if I ever doubt it, I look in the mirror).

Now, money is something I know you hold dear,
So if you’ll take my tip, get your ass in gear
And earn it like me — do I make myself clear?

ENDEMIC SPECIES

What time do they let the animals out of the park?
–sightseer at Denali National Park

Park rangers (we bet) know
Why nature lovers grieve —
Animals are ‘let go’….
But the tourists won’t leave.

Whores!

    As long as we’re discussing prostitution, let me quote again my favorite Dorothy Parker line: “You can lead a horticulture, but you can’t make her think.”

    Well, let’s not be too hard on whores – they have to live too.

    Aw, but tourists can add such an atmosphere to a place. It’s an atmosphere of being photographed and moved past, but that’s still something.

    Many’s the time I’ve been a tourist myself, and many’s the photo album I’ve filled as a result….so this post was more caricature than eyewitness account, but I did observe a few “Ugly Americans” along the way.
