An Alternative To The High Costs Of Paddle Out Services At San Onofre?

















It’s no secret that people have been dumping ashes into the waters of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland since it first opened on March 18, 1967.

We came from dust, we return to dust. You think paddle-outs are expensive, you should see what that snake-in-the grass Republican, George =W= Bush, has done to gas prices. He sure got even with Saddam, didn't he.

So he secretly traded up the futures market, eh BK?

Not really knowing the lingo, yet slowly picking it up through you guys.

It took me a few seconds, but I got it...{:P

I do love to watch you guys surf though.. Where else can I go to watch half naked men, with their cute butts in the air as they paddle out. Than sit with there dripping wet showing off their tight chests. No man boobies there.

Than in a moments notice jump to their feet, showing me that to a real man. Cold water isn't a problem for them at all, package in tact.

Next thing you know they're right in front of me, turning around showing me their assets. Then doing it all over again.

All that entertainment, an it doesn't cost me a dime. Two shows daily, one in the morning than in the evening.

I do love to watch you guys surf...

You ain't telling me anything I don't already know, Sydney.

I met my future wife on that ride. We were both sitting in the back. Just as we went through the part where the jail is burning, I was so surprised to see that as I was pouring my father's ashes out the right side, she was pouring her mother's ashes out on the left. I never believed in love at first sight until that moment.

A "paddle out" is that part of a surfer's memorial service where his or her cremated remains (ashes) are paddled out by their friends and family on surfboards, and then cast upon the ocean, usually with the group in a big circle out on the water, sitting outside the normal surf line.

Modernly, they also have paddle outs to support various causes or to protest against other things, like the Super Ferry in Hawaii, or the killing of dolphins in Japan.

There are businesses that will provide these services for a fee, but since it’s illegal to dump ashes in the coastal waterways, their fees are high.

Not me Sydney, I want my ashes dumped into Disneyland's fume ride FLASH mountain. It’s much more fun than the pirate ride, and my mourners get to see some boobs .

Thanks for the info Papa,

I caught on about the memorial when Terry passed, but I had no idea it was also used for so many different causes. Pretty cool, I wouldn't mind observing one of those.

It also gives me something else to admire, besides your bodies.
