Take a Willy Wonka vacation!

December 18, 2008

Blog Guy, I was amazed by your item about the two Taj Mahals. I’m planning a trip to exotic Machu Picchu. How many of those are there?

Counting the chocolate one?

Wait! There’s a chocolate one?

Sure. Here’s a photo. Many popular tourist places are being replicated in dessert form these days, since folks are tired of the real thing. For instance, the best Big Ben is a chocolate one in Italy.

This can’t be true! How do people even find out about these things?

From the boutique dessert travel agencies. Rocky Road Tours, Thriller in Vanilla, Crème Brûlée Getaway, and so on. Here’s a chocolate travel slideshow.

Hmm. Is this more of your stupidity? I’ll check out the chocolate Machu Picchu.

Great. And don’t forget the one down in Georgia, made from really masculine fruit.

Don’t say it. Please don’t say it.

It’s too late to stop myself. MACHO PEACHU.

Stay young. Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

OK, hold the phone. Why is Big Ben in Italy?! Somewhere in England do they have the ceiling of the Sistine chapel in chocolate?!

Oh, and I am from Georgia. We don’t have chocolate peaches down here, y’all. That’s just wrong.

Unless it’s Godiva, I’m not impressed.

Can’t say it’s your best/worst pun, but it’s Top 10.
