Clear the park

Not the Happiest Place on Earth: Attendance has surged at Disneyland, forcing parkgoers to endure long lines for rides. To ease the crowding, Disney brass are said to be again contemplating raising admission fees.

The Buzz's advice: Pipe that maddening “It's a Small Word” ditty into every PA speaker in the park.

Moneymakers: An industry trade group advises restaurants to list their most profitable items at the top and bottom of a menu category, because that's where the eye tends to drift to first.

If you order one of those items, tell your server you'll have the Quarterly Tax Filing is Due special.

Wild about “Harry”: In “I Wanna Marry 'Harry,'” a new reality competition show, a group of women compete for a chance to marry someone they think is Prince Harry, but who is actually an impersonator. This raises the question: What kind of moron thinks a royal would participate in an idiotic reality show on Fox?

Answer: the same kind of moron who thinks Prince Harry, he of the ethnic slurs, Nazi party costumes and Vegas strip poker sessions, is good marriage material.
