Mayday, Mayday

Heard in a focus group:

Guy: Damn kids, keep me from enjoying the ponies.

Moderator: What if we were to combine the smoking, drinking and gambling of a racetrack with the thrills and chills of a kiddie park?

Guy: Now, I think you got something. But they can’t be your everyday rides. Has to be something different. Something unusual.

Moderator: Different. Unusual. This is good stuff.

That would certainly explain the Titanic-themed inflatable slide at the Santa Anita Park Racetrack.

Kids climb up to the stern of the mighty ship and then hurl themselves down the same slippery deck that poured 1517 souls into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic.
