I believe Yo-Yo was the factory name for TexTor (which is what I wished we called it).

Silly = good.
Goofy = great. And if you're truly off the wall, I spell it guphie.

You don't have to be a comedy writer to make me laugh.

On second thought... let's not go to Yo Yo.

Yo-Yo was like any other ride I worked. It was what you made it. Myself, I enjoyed the time I was there. Good people there.

Possibly, but I'd say that a permanent assignment at the petting zoo would be the worst possible cosmic justice (or maybe a stint at Lost Temple of the Chisos ...)

Indeed. I heard horror stories about Conquistador before my time there, but I managed to enjoy myself anyway. Mostly because of the people I worked with and the socializing with the folks at the neighboring rides. I also had supes that I enjoyed working with and that made it fun (Tracy High, Brad J., Keith (his last name escapes me at the moment, Joe Ellis was our managerial).
