To mark the 50th anniversary of "It's A Small World," Disney is planning a global sing-along.

"Living it up at the Hotel California..."

Might as well attempt to replace one hideous earworm with another that at least has a decent guitar solo. You're welcome.

Afterward we will all sing Copacabana and jump off of a cliff.

First ever global earworm.

The last time I went to Disney World it took me TWO WEEKS to get that song out of my head. I may be wrong but I think this is against the rules of the Geneva Convention.

I blame the Goths and Global Climate Warming, oh, and dust mites.

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears
It's a world of hopes and a world of fears
There's so much that we share that it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

You're welcome.

Was there at the beginning, the 1964 World's Fair in Queens. The exhibit was was wondrous to my childish eyes, but my ears still regret their exposure to The Song.

I am very glad that happened after our tour through the Disney Pavilion. Met Walt Disney himself the day before, because my Dad was in a wheelchair, and his staff decided to escort us through the Pavilion for a behind the scenes personalized tour, instead of making us wait on an endless line. Passed through a working studio, where the Mouseman himself was hunched over a drawing desk with an artist. He noticed us, stopped and chatted, and gave us an autograph. He was working on concepts for EPCOT at that moment.

I wuz at the 64 fair meself. I bet you were that tall short fat thin black white guy.....yeah

Makes this guy sound more palatable....

or maybe, we could all sing this?

If ever there was justification for global thermonuclear war.

I thought the ride would have been just great if you were allowed to bring an air rifle in with you. Hey, Dave, maybe Ridley could do that in the next book?

If a small tactical nuke just "happened" to go off at a certain large amusement park outside Orlando, would people really mind?

Meanie, I was there too. I remember the exhibit well and hate the song to this day. I think that's what turned me into a Mouse hater. You couldn't drag me to Disney. Las Vegas is looking pretty good though.

Where is a drone when you need one?

It's Disney. Why is anyone surprised by anything but evil from them?

I was a very sulky 15 year old in 1970, visiting an aunt in San Diego. No zoo, no koala bear my most favorite thing... Just Disney, and just the America the Beautiful movie, the Talking Presidents, and THAT ride.... Okay and the Pirates.... Couldn't believe how SHORT everyone's hair was required to be, all squeaky clean... and THAT song.

My two and a half year old summed it up nicely after the two hour drive down the freeway to MouseTown in Anaheim. We had discussed Mickey and his cohorts all the way there. Finally we pull into the parking lot and find a spot in this absolute sea of cars. He jumps out, puts his hands on his hips, takes a look around and says, "Where is all the fun?"

Nobody fell for funny man's bit, right? RIGHT??
