The end of an era. Sniff.

Well, it's finally official.

After several summers of blowing off the threats, Coney Island is finally conceding to the big bad condo tycoons and closing Astroland for good. On SUNDAY.

This seems rather sudden, and as a result, I find it jarring and I don't really know how to react.

Thankfully, I got my fill of giant, bong-sized frozen Pina Coladas on the boardwalk, tattooed midgets at the sideshow, and needle-sticks on the beach to last me quite a long time. The memories will keep me warm at night as we enter into the cold, cold winter without Astroland.

So, I leave you with this fuzzy memory. Also, it has a gratuitous boob shot. So stop complaining that I don't do anything for you.

Happy weekend, sex perverts!



PS I was just told that this freaking embed isn't working. So if you want to see the boobs video, click here.

Thanks, John.

Thanks to that video I will hopefully make it through the day.

Wow... so there were 2 boob shoots, and I watched the video like twice. And since you have just 2 boobs, that means I saw them 8 times.

I love new math!!!

When do we get the cyclone video? I've never ridden the cyclone.

Ron, I do what I can for y'all. You know that.

Steve, It's better than porn. But not really.

They're closing THAT? With little if any warning? Jeez.

Well, if you like scary stuff, there's always the Wiard's Orchard Night Terrors in Ypsilanti Township.

It played just fine for me. So I wanted to thank you for the beautiful smile and spectacular boobs. Those were my favorite parts. I mean that in all sincerity. Beautiful smiling girls with fabulous boobs are the greatest thing in the world.
