Upvote/Downvote: Saved By The Bell, Cookie Monster And More Wild News

Like that episode of “Saved By The Bell” where Zack dreams that he and his friends tour the world as a rock-and-roll band, this week has been crazy.

There has been something for everybody this week, including a Titanic time travel trip that is coming to the high sea in a few years and a reminder that not all cuddly characters are, well, cuddly.

In fact, if you see a beloved pop culture character out in the wild, you need to keep your distance.

Don’t worry, because we will explain shortly.

Saved By The Great Idea:

The Chicago area is going to get the greatest diner pop-up in the history of the known world this summer.

Upvote: Undoubtedly, it has been a childhood dream of yours to sit in that special booth reserved for the cool kids and Screech while you ask Max or James the actor for a burger and fries.

Now you can do just that, sans Screech, Max or James the actor.

Titanic Endeavor:

Like horrible movies that aren’t getting the right fix in post, the Titanic II’s premiere date is being pushed back to 2018.

Downvote: This doesn’t exactly invoke a great deal of confidence. As long as engineers don’t boast that this thing is unsinkable we should be good, however.

Uber American:

TravelPulse’s Donald Wood reports American Airlines is bringing some Uber transportation options to your itinerary, giving passengers the ability to remind themselves to hail a ride through their service.

Upvote: Slowly we are seeing brands come together with integration that benefits the end consumer. What this means is you can be even lazier as a traveler, simply settling every last component of your travels in one fell swoop. Three cheers for lazy.

Crazy Characters:

Cookie Monster, Minnie Mouse and Olaf were arrested for harassing tourists, which brings into question what exactly goes into those cookies that blue guy has been eating.

Downvote: Adults dressed up in costume go up there with steak houses and souvenir shops as the most egregious tourist traps in the world.

We understand that you now have an infinite amount of photos you can take on your phone. Still, you shouldn’t waste any on this lot.
