This is an email from the L.A. Cacophony Society regarding their latest hijinks. Too bad it is on the same day as Bax's Int'l Tiki Day party. These are the same people who invented Santa Con.
"Calling all Huells & Luises (& Huellas & Luisas)! All Aboard for the L.A CACOPHONY GOLD LINE HUELL HOWSER CON! Join the tour on the L.A. to Pasadena Gold Line Train as we explore and discover some California Gold, Huell Howser style!
Mass Huell impersonators will take to the streets and interview and annoy everyone in our path! You'll sit in the lap of tax-bought luxury aboard the new trains ($3.75 million each) and enjoy the running commentary by our worldly and charming tour guides!

Now that sounds like a trip! I used to do a pretty good Huell Houser impersonation once upon a time, but it's been years since I even thought about it.
