yeah, I can really see the resemblances now. :|

(I'll let you into a secret, the only reason I knew it was Steve Carrell is I googled the name on his shirt)

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

OK, we guessed Harry Connick, but as soon as we posted our guess, my wife says, that MIGHT be elvis....we looked at the pics for a few mins then thought there was no way!

Thanks again for the cool TR!

I Love Donkeys!

Well, there’s been a lovely flurry of activity here since our mention on the front page. But that’s no reason to hold up the next exciting installment of Erik & Misty’s Smoky Mountain “Roadside America” Adventures!

Walden’s Landing is a somewhat-funky little shopping center, located between traffic light numbers 3 and 2B in Pigeon Forge, and literally built around a mini golf course: Firehouse Golf.
01P6187718.JPG
Firehouse Golf is themed to bears fighting fire. Obviously.
03P6187616.JPG
The coolest store in Walden’s Landing is undoubtedly The Red Rocket.
07P6187615.JPG
Featuring cool/nerdy pop culture merchandise, like this Bender shirt. (Yes, Misty bought it.)
09P6187608.JPG
Huuuymmmm!
10P6187604.JPG
Awesome, I’ve always wanted to eat the shell.
12P6187592.JPG
Note the sign on the left. Because who wouldn’t want to buy shoes from the devil?
15P2121539.JPG
One of these stores has smoochie geese in it.
16P6187597.JPG
Calhoun’s is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. And did I hear someone inquire about Kilwin’s?
19P6187580.JPG
Attention Kilwin’s customers: Simply entering our store may kill you.
20IMGP2431.JPG
Calhoun’s calls this “banana pudding.” Which is kind of like calling Scarlett Johansson “a girl.”
21IMGP0499.JPG
And now, for dessert, ribs!
30P6187691.JPG
Can we play mini golf now?
36P6187625.JPG
There are two 18-hole courses.
40P6187643.JPG
Let's start with the yellow course.
46P6187659.JPG
Loop-deeeee-looooooop!!! (But Smisty goes around.)
48P6187662.JPG
The last time we played here, it was Winter (see the fourth picture in the very first post of this thread, as a reference).
55P6187702.JPG
And now for the red course. (Note MagiQuest across the street.)
57P6187720.JPG
I can’t figure out why you’d need to do #2 again (unless it falls off during #3).
60P6187741.JPG
Smisty showing off the Boondock Saints shirt she bought at Red Rocket.
65P6187732.JPG
Noooo! Don’t jump, little golf ball!
70P6187671.JPG
Am I taking my own picture here, or slyly taking a picture of the woman playing mini golf in chaps?
90P6187701.JPG
WLFD... Why Leaves For Dinner? What Looks Funny Dead?? When Larry Falls Down???
95P6187780.JPG
I like how hole #18 is set up (even though you can’t win a free game off of it).

I won both courses, by the way. I just thought I should mention that.
98IMGP0494.JPG
And that’s Firehouse Golf and Walden’s Landing. As always, thanks for reading.

Oh...Wild Life Fire Department. Got it.

I've finally stumbled upon your cunning plan to beat Misty in mini golf - you make her wear a back pack filled with bricks as a handicap!

^ Amazing!

But it's not filled with bricks. It's filled with live racoons, to throw off her balance.

Nevertheless, I would totally send you something awesome for this, but you apparently live in Australia. So, instead, I shall simply declare you "E&MSMA's Poster of the Week!"
