I’m a sucker for the Jungle Cruise, especially with a great skipper, but I also enjoy the narrative that goes on in my head. It’s sort of like going on the ride, sometimes it’s good and my name is Matthew. Other times, it’s um… well, let’s just say my name is Kevin. Hehehe… (He’ll get me back, don’t worry) When the attack from the natives comes, the narrative usually turns to their unwillingness to actually spear anyone. For a long time I figured it was Disney policy. Then I realized, they’re just too lazy to actually go through with it—not that I blame them. If I were crouching in the bushes all day, I probably wouldn’t find much strength in my desire to spear tourists either.
