I'm an outlaw, on a stick horse I ride.

This Charming Man


In the Fall of 2009, we were planning a trip to Disney World for the week surrounding New Year's.  The ad campaign for WDW at the time included a commercial that featured a little girl riding the carousel, wearing full Snow White regalia.  This commercial really started to irk Max:
