Gilligan’s Island ‘Minnow’ Found in Lufkin! [VIDEO]
Stay put! I have breaking news designed to floor the most eccentric Classic Rocker! Ready?
Gilligan, The Skipper, The Professor, Mary-Ann, Ginger, and Mr. & Mrs. Howell; they have all been rescued! Hang on, we can't really find them, but we did find their boat, the S.S. Minnow. I kid you not!
Lufkin police are stumped as to where the castaways may be hiding, but if you want to see the boat that went for a "three hour tour", and took a wrong turn in 1964, then make the journey to Jack in the Box on Highway 69S.
Plenty of spectators these days wondering if that barnacle eye-sore will be razed, or be spared the depths of ocean tranquility to grace its perch for more years to come.
Kind of reminds me of the "Pet Rock" invention, where one guy with nothing going on in his life, somehow compelled the rest of us to buy into his dream. Only this time, it's over 1,000 Facebookers leading the charge to save an old relic laboring in a construction zone that may or may not house a Denny's restaurant in the near future.
Only time will tell (ho-hum) if this overwhelming protest will prevail, but my hunch is that I'll be eating a "Grand Slam" breakfast in December, right on the deck where Mary-Ann and I would have made bee-you-ta-ful music (wink, wink).
