Disneyland - Deep Thoughts on a Wednesday

Around these parts, when the humidity is up, the mosquitoes are buzzing, and mid-week has arrived, our thoughts turn to deeper things.
Why is it, for example, that Fantasyland is real, Tomorrowland is here today and Mickey is missing fingers?
So many turkey legs...where does the rest of the turkey go?
If it's a small world after all, why is it so expensive to fly to Australia?
What are Main Street trolley horses thinking?
Is "innovention" really a word?  If so, why is it plural?
Can it be erased or deleted?
Where is Henry, the emcee of the Country Bear Jamboree, spending his retirement?
What do you have to do to get a door on Main Street?
Why did they change the FastPass side of the Big Thunder queue?  What's gonna happen when the Park gets crowded?  Will the main line overtake the Rancho de Zocalo Restaurante?
They took out the Skyway because....??????
They took out the Peoplemover because....?????
Why isn't it Club 31?
If a skipper falls in the Jungle river and no one is there to see it, does he still make a splash?
More importantly, do the piranhas feel full or are they hungry two hours later?
How many kernels of Orville Redenbacher's ® Gourmet Popping Corn have hit the ground since the Park started selling it?
Uh, Mr. Eisner, how'd that California Adventure park work out for you?  (Don't look now, but I think they've almost COMPLETELY re-done the place!)
What is Disneyland's carbon footprint and has it in any way contributed to the blizzards that have racked the Midwest and the East?
Are we so stupid as a people that we really need DOORS on our parking lot trams?
Does anyone else miss "Disneyland" cups, napkins and bags from food service and merchandise locations in the Park?  The "Disney Parks" logo is a touch too generic for me, thanks.  I know, I know.  It's cheaper.
Not the point.
How many light bulbs are on the exteriors of the buildings along Main Street?
Good day, Mr. Dinglinger!  Wherever you are!

Adieu, mon ami.
