It’s disconcertingly large, you guys

We live in the country where there aren’t any parks nearby so I decided to get on google maps and see if there were any in the neighboring counties that had merry-go-rounds.  I miss merry-go-rounds.  This is what I found instead.

I swear to God, this is real.

I have concerns.

  145. WOW! I am luck enough to live in Colorado and have a park right accross the street. However it does not have a merry-go-round. Not many parks will have them anymore do to kids getting hurt.

    Tell me who thinks we are protecting our kids to much?
    It just seems to me that they are always taking fun things away form kids because they will get hurt.

    As for the name ‘Butt park’ maybe they miss spelled it and it is suppose to Butte Prark. Just a thought

    And all those ‘down on California’ commenters are wrong. Within a 30 min drive of my house, there are no less than 3 actual merry-go-rounds (the horse/animal motorized kind) and one of those old-fashioned playground metal ones that are so hard to find because they are too fun…I mean, dangerous.

  261. @Tamera: Am I a bad cheesehead if I’ve never even been to the Cheese Castle? No, not even the new and improved one with the fancy drawbridge.

  262. That reminds me of the time I laughed my ass off (and e-mailed everyone I knew- after I stopped driving of course) when I drove through central Kentucky and passed the sign that said “Big Bone Lick State Park”.
    Wait… I see by the comments I’m not the only one.
    Then while I was staying in Kentucky, the hotel that I was staying at had a brochure for the French Lick resort in Indiana. Suffice to say I had a really hilarious time in Kentucky.

  267. Talk about timing… in the silly bits of Olympics non-news, I learned that one of the showjumping horses is named “Butts Leon”. (He’s beautiful, of course. Aren’t all horses beautiful?)

  274. When you’re in Denver, you should get a picture of yourself taken beside a street sign for Jackass Hill in Littleton (about 20 or 30 minutes south from where you’ll be methinks).
