So silly that not even a facepalm is necessary: just the look will do:

I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers- because you did, too. No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room. Salute mi familia. You'll always be with me... And you'll always be my brother.

And 8 more reasons Trevor should feel right at home in Florida.

South Africa has Durban and Cape Town.
Florida has Florida.

Florida has Disney's Animal Kingdom (DAK) and Animal Kingdom Lodge (AKL.)

Some of the cast members and guests speak Afrikaans.

You can go on an animal safari.

And the best reason.
One can look out of one's window at the Lodge and see giraffes and zebras and other South African animals passing below the window.
Just like one can when one is at home in South Africa.

All of my overseas tours were through the British company Trafalgar.  Something I like about them is that their tours are made up of individuals from all over the English speaking world.  I've been on tours with Americans, Canadians, Australians, Brits, and South Africans.  In 2010 when I went to Italy several of the people were from SA and they were all encouraging the rest of us to come visit SA.

We do that wherever we go. Smile

I'm getting a student from the USA here next week: the first thing I will say to him when he gets here is "Welcome to South Africa." And I will mean it.  Smile

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
