Photographic Memory: The Inappropriate Puppets of Dinoland U.S.A.

JENN: Photographic Memory time! Did you see the pics I want to use?

MOON: Ah, yes. The dinosaur puppets!

JENN: Here we have Moon helpfully modeling dinosaur puppets from the big gift shop in Dinoland U.S.A. – I believe it’s called Chester and Hester’s Souvenirs of Extinction or something like that?

These pictures are from December 2008, so the details for me are fuzzy, but my caption in the Facebook album says something about pterodactyl porn…? The implication is that it’s an inside joke for you that I don’t understand. We are probing the dark, seedy underbelly of Disney excursions, clearly.

MOON: Haha, you know, I remember we took that picture for my ex Ryan.

JENN: A man well known as the King of Dinosaur Erotica.

MOON: Apparently. And I remember there being an inside joke about dinosaurs, probably related to aforementioned pterodactyl porn (it was something he found on the internet and thought was funny), but now the association just seems inappropriate, ha!

JENN: So… pterodactyl porn is a real thing?

MOON: Umm, I’m not googling that for verification…

JENN: I wouldn’t. So Dinoland U.S.A. must be a very traumatic area for you, then.

MOON: Let’s just say I have no plans to purchase those puppets.

JENN: Okay, well, I think it’s safe to say that we’ve effectively ruined Dinoland for everybody. Sorry about that, guys.
