Apologies to Ken Hirai, Bill Ritch, Game Republic

Well, I think we all owe Ken Hirai, Bill Ritch (producer for Genji: Days of the Blade), and game developers Game Republic an apology. Apparently, it WAS based on history. If you aren't familiar with the back story...



And now what am I talking about? Well I came across this at the Atlanta Aquarium.
















Are those?...
















Well they weren't exactly Giant Enemy Crabs but they were Japanese Spider Crabs and according to the info plaque could grow to span of 14 feet. Furthermore, a 14 foot crab only weighs about 44 pounds so a violent blow to the ground by the legendary Benkei could conceivably flip over such a beast causing it to reveal his weak point.

So again. To Kaz Hirai, Bill Ritch, and Game Republic. Sorry. It was fun while it lasted.

Atlanta Aquarium. World's Largest* Aquarium. Enjoy it while it lasts. It's only a matter of time before Dubai wrestles that title from your tiny grasps.

Sting Ray petting tank? Slimy. Tasty?
































Little did I know...
































Kiss!
















Eat!





















































Why is it called Beluga Caviar? Beluga whales are mammals. They don't lay eggs. And Beluga Caviar is black while Beluga whales are super white. Well the answer lies in the internet. "Beluga caviar consists of the roe (or eggs) of the Beluga sturgeon found primarily in the Caspian Sea." Well that was dumb.
































This Otter is training for the American Gladiator Q-tip joust event.
















Penguins!


























































































































This was the super tank with Whale Shark. One day, cities will be filled with flying cars and the traffic models will be mapped on fish.
















Sleeping...





















Hey it's Nemo! What? Deepo? Who's Deepo? According to one quick thinking parent not ready for that lawsuit and copyright infringement talk all parents dread making one day, "Uh... no, that's Deepo. Nemo's friend." Yeah, of course it is.
















I <3 Plagiarism
















Sure... Say what you must so you can sleep at night. Does your integrity have no boundaries?
















Oh... ok. Obviously you are waaay too comfortable with this rip-off concept.
















Anyways, Lunch. Mary Mac's Tea Room.
















Sweet Potato Souffle (except it is obviously not a souffle so I don't know why it's called that) that was waaaaaay too sweet. And in case you couldn't tell that, they went and added marshmallows on it just to be sure. Top: Creamed Corn. And Chicken Pot Pie. Oh Grandma's (Restaurant in Peekskill with giant CPPs).
































Soft serve at Zesto's = Egads! OK, bye bye Atlanta. Thanks for the hockey. If I have heart failure, I know where to find defibrillators.

NHL All Star Game
















Breakfast
















The Hives (from Sweden apparently) were very unimpressive singing off key and being a douche band which I define as singing new songs no one has ever heard of and not singing the ONE song everyone knows despite being on a National broadcast and even though you're probably sick of singing. My brother, along with probably 50% of the viewers, were asking "who are these guys?"
