Choo-choo! Choo-choo! That's what I yell uncontrollably every time I see the trains at Knott's Berry Farm. I also jump up and down and point. It's kind of embarrassing, and might be a form of Tourette's. Fortunately, my friends and loved ones are used to it. But man, just look at that beautiful locomotive, is it any wonder that I get so worked up? I think the water tower is leaning slightly, or maybe it's just me.
Knott's needs to hire some Pinkertons, because the train gets robbed every time! You'll be sitting there, staring out the window as the world passes sloooooowly by (the Knott's train does go really slow), when you will be startled by a very loud BANG! BANG! These guys use blanks (ever since the Geneva Convention), but it still scares the pants off of everyone. Each day the robbers acquire huge piles of purses, wallets, and cell phones, prescription drugs, and watches, which really raises the day's receipts!
