[quote comment=”137007″]Watch the uncanny similarity

Mr. Rogers even has a light rail.


Hey, Turning Point? I was wondering… Em, could you have a miniature model created in your likeness that opens up like a Barbie house? I’ve always thought that Barbie sucks ass. But a miniature, detailed model of Turning Point, filled with little food, dishes, utensils, staff members, patrons, etc., would absolutely rock.

Just a thought. :mrgreen:


I loved Mr. Rogers.

I also enjoy miniature models. Um, a lot. My friend and I took a tour of Maxwell place once– for sh*ts and giggles– and I spent more time checking out their beautiful miniature model than I did their condos.

Cute picture!


Watch the uncanny similarity


“It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor,
Would you be mine? Could you be mine?

It’s a neighborly day in this beautywood,
A neighborly day for a beauty,
Would you be mine? Could you be mine?

I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you,
I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So let’s make the most of this beautiful day,
Since we’re together, we might as well say,
Would you be mine? Could you be mine?
Won’t you be my neighbor?

Won’t you please, won’t you please,
Please won’t you be my neighbor?”

– Mr. R.
