They are.

Fair point, but it's a pretty safe bet that The Flinstones was not a scientifically accurate depiction of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods.

When things are funny and not rude, yes I have a sense of humor. I have several Mennonite friends and did not find those comments funny in the least bit. I wouldn't have found them funny even if I wasn't friends with Mennonites.

I understand that. I just don't accept her visions as legitimate, and I don't have much use for Constantine.

If you ever come to Philly I will point out to you the exact spot where Ben Franklin flew a kite, Betsy Ross sewed a flag, and Rocky climbed some steps ...
I'd love that! I can't promise I'd be convinced of their authenticity, but I've always wanted to visit Philly!

I didn't think it was funny, either, but it was obviously a tongue in cheek post.

Jesus.

I agree, and getting all offended by it just reveals oneself to be a hyper-sensitive whiter person. (call me racist, but that's not really how I meant it)

Talking about cheesy theme parks ... isn't there a place called Flintstone's Bedrock City??? A quick internet search reveals there are actually two of these places: one in South Dakota and one in Arizona. Has anyone visited either of these places?

I think there's a lot of them because I remember going to one as a kid and I don't think it was in SD or AZ but it may well have been. I know there are still a lot of places like Jellystone Park (Yogi Bear & friends) like this one very near my home... Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort Larkspur Colorado

Ironically I have an RV, pre-schoolers, and a < 20 minute drive to get there and have not been there yet because it just seems so tacky.

This does not seem tacky to me.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park

The ultimate tacky: spectator sports.
