If you were going to design a Homer's Odyssey theme park, which rides and attractions would you put into it and what would happen inside those rides and attractions?

I would have "Flight from Polyphemus" in which you had to ride three rams (motorized and moving at fast paces) underneath a huge swinging figure of Polyphemus. You'd win if you didn't drop off, and you'd lose if you did. You'd land on a mat so you couldn't sue the theme park people. The motorized rams would go so fast that most people would drop off.

What would you put into your Odyssey theme park?

I'd really like to know because my kids at school are going to have to design such a park, but I want to draw up prototype so they can see how they could do one.

Thank you very much for y'all's ideas--I always use them.

You mean Janet Jackson wasn't trying out for a job there with her Superbowl performance?

Very funny, Max. You did make me laugh. But now, please, come up with one ride. Thanks. Or one attraction. Janet Jackson wasn't in Homer's Odyssey, as you know, 'less you were thinking about her trying out for Circe or somethin'...

And we could have Sting on a precipice singing his line about being caught between Scylla and Charybdis.

No, no, no. It was Odysseus who was starkers and had to cover up his bits with a tree branch. Don't know quite how you're going to include that bit.

Thanks, guys. You're really helping me out a lot! Sheesh.

Actually, I like the whirlpool. That would be great, as you suggested, for Scylla and Charybdis: the water park part of the theme park. Fun to imagine what would happen there!

Restaurant: Lotus Eaters Restaurant. (Much too boring of an idea, so can you think of something original to do with the Lotus Eaters, for instance?)

Thanks, et', for the whirlpool. S and C Water Park will be fun to draw and explain.

How 'bout the Cattle of the Sun? (And no smart comments about mad cow disease!)

How about a rifle range with bows and arrows instead of rifles, and shooting through the axe heads.

Put all the little kiddies in a room and fill it full of marijuana smoke.
