    Those are all clever! The Country Bear tombstone made me laugh so hard! "Pooh Happens" is the PERFECT caption for it. And Big Al with angel wings... great pin.

      At first I thought the Country Bears pin was hilarious. But the more I thought about it (and got some perspective) I realized it was the worst of the lot. Why did they need to mock the ride that replaced CBJ in such an obvious way?
      I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

        Oh yeah... that does seem kinda mean
        Good morning, son
        In twenty years from now
        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
        And I can tell you 'bout today
        And how I picked you up and everything changed
        It was pain
        Sunny days and rain
        I knew you'd feel the same things...

          That's kinda their point!
          BTW - there are seven.
          Interesting set. I prefer the Remember When set - more well done, nicer looking.

              I love the concept behind this set. I didn't mind the Country Bears pin. I thought it was only stating a fact that a Pooh attraction replaced it. Of course, I'm kinda bias because I remember that the Country Bears was one of the attractions that I could see again and again at TDL. It's definitely one of my favorite. Before this pin, I never knew it was replaced at Disneyland ... sad times

                The sad thing is Pooh happened right as the Pooh fad was winding down. Now we have an attraction that kids don't know about and adults don't care about. I miss the Country Bears! And the pin is not very considerate, it went too far.

                  That is what happened though. It's not lying. The CBJ just got too outdated, and they replaced it with a more current attraction that kids knew of and parents grew up with. Pooh did happen to the CBJ... he moved in. The way its phrased is just a clever play on words to fit the humorous tombstone captions.

                    I think the CB pin is a riot! I am going to buy it...and all of them...if I can find them all at a decent price!

                      I already have bought the CBJ pin. It's on its way to my house (should be, at any rate) right now!

                          I think they are hilarious! I'd love to own the set, but alas, funds are short for a teenager these days.

                              Stitchon couldn't have answered that better. It's exactly what he says. What with college eating up most of my money, and car expenses as well, I can only afford to indulge a little, so I opted to buy my favorite of them all and be happy :oD
