OK folks! It is February 1st, and that means it is time. Time to bust out the floral shirts, stock up on exotic nectars, and fruits, and of course rums. Time to move my collection of the complete works of Beachbum Berry to the active bar shelf. Time to annoy the wife with too much Martin Denny.Time to open boxes containing this year’s additions to my collection of drinkware evoking pagan idolatry.
Time for Mai Tais. And more.
It is Tiki Month, guys! I invite you all to get in on the action. Chase the winter blahs away with some tropical exotica. My Australian readers who are currently basking in the heat of Summer can screw off. Nah, you can join in too. I won’t hold your good weather against you… much. And to my readers who blog, don’t forget that I’m totally co-opting Mixology Monday for my own purposes on February 20. You will post. And you will bring the awesome.
So I’ve updated the special Tiki Month decor this year with a mug from my own collection and…
…And brought in new management!
This dump sure needed it!
Dump? I beg your pardon!
Listen, Chump, why else would the owner bring in turn-around artists like me and Zazu if things didn’t need a facelift?
I brought you in because it was funny to do so, bird brain!
Also, I did it as a comment on your late, lamented run in charge of the Enchanted Tiki Room in Disney World. So lamented in fact that the ghost of Walt Disney himself set you on fire. Seriously folks, they reverted the show pretty close to the original format that showcased Walt’s own love of Tiki culture. It’s much better now, and if the only way you’ve seen the ETR was during Iago’s tenure, it’s well worth a second look.
blame the parrot!
And another thing, right now
you are kinda horning in on my gig around here.
Don’t get too comfortable with that!
Finally Iago, you are here so I have someone to blame if something goes wrong with Tiki Month. (Something always goes wrong with Tiki Month. The Tiki gods are fickle masters.) Otherwise I’d have to blame Guy!
Listen. In my defense,
Zazu did it.
Enjoy Tiki Month, everybody!
