      you are lucky, since John is still there and probably will empty one of his luggage bag to take you home!!! ask someone on the street how to find him!

      the power went out so I didn't get GERNS message till too late!!! I saw him running down the runway after the plane but couldn't do anything about it!!! GOOD LUCK GERN!!!

    This was truly awesome! Please, can we can do this every year?!?! I hope so, I took the roo home with me to fatten him up (on chocolate, of course). Maybe, we can have a roo race!

      I've got extra kangaroos in my luggage... Who wants one???

    • Mary

      Poor Roo! I never even got to meet him before his chocolate demise...

    Apparently I did not follow instructions by first hiking Mt Everest, so my lottery ticket didn't provide me with the expected winfall to afford this trip. Now, who is supposed to pay me for having eaten a kangaroo?

    2 · April 2, 2013

  • Irina

    I was a last one in line for kangaroo and got strange one look like a snake... it's OK, since it's easier to carry him around compare to other people in the group who carry giant kangaroo and sweating...

    2 · April 1, 2013

    • Irina

      aww, sorry Joe! You missed it! It's ok... next year!

      April 2, 2013

    • Joe

      That's okay, I'm just feeling sorry for myself.

  • Alma B.

    I did eat a lot of chocolate on the way up and the whole way down. Who is in charge of sending my paycheck? Please do it soon cuz I gotsta pay the rent!

    I keep wanting to see myself riding the Kangaroo eating dark, dark, chocolate picturing my love for everyone and how Gern handed us all that multi-million dollar check on the notion we will pay it forward. That we got up that early in the morning for the time of our lives! Thanks Everyone! So Regardless of reality and with Full Encompassing Intoxicating Love that will change reality I had a great time at Disneyland on Easter and you are not talking me out of it.

  • Mary

    Aww, No Chocolate! But I did not go so that comment does not count. I bet you guys ate tons of Chocolate and rode Kangaroos to no end and had a fabulous time earning millions just having fun like God Loves You Which is the purpose and meaning of life :)

  • Lou L.

    I'm so bummed I did not win the lottery! Then to top it off the dumb kangaroo keep jumping for joy... Just wasn't my day. So I broke down and ate so much chocolate that I could not do the hike to Everest. Wish I just stayed home in bed!

    I had a great time even though I was put in jail for goat smuggling and my Sherpa bit me over 300 times and my shoes fell off and I fell down

    Some chocolate kangaroo burgers and a few lottery tickets would go down nicely for dinner though.

    April fools everybody! I'm not really in a car park @ Mt. Everest. I'm in an office cube atop a giant parking lot overlooking the airport.

    Any tips on housebreaking my new kangaroo? Would The Dog Whisperer strategies work on him too? Correction advice?

      Not sure, but I discovered his pouch makes a GREAT laptop case...

    I'm taking my winnings and my kangaroo to my podiatrist to lokk at my poor feet from the Everest climb. OUCH!

    It's a little steep for me so I'm still on the way up. Nice scenery! Guess the kangaroos and chocolate are at the top?

    1 · April 1, 2013

      So sorry, I don't see any kangaroo left, but there is plenty of chocolate! Hurry up!!!

    I believe GERN is still in jail in Kathmandu... Everyone
    in town seems to know the guy... He's allegedly the head of a worldwide goat smuggling ring!!!

    I'm going to try to bail him out

    2 · March 30, 2013

    • ! That JOHN G.

      GERN was not allowed bail since last time he escaped disguised as a pregnant YAK... I guess I'll have to go it alone... wish me luck!!!
