Waldo shares his vacation pictures.

The following scene takes place at Waldo's home, where he has invited some close friends over to see a slide show of his year's travels.

Waldo: Ah yes, here I am at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower.  What a lovely day that was.

Kenny: Now where are you Waldo?

Waldo: I am in the left hand corner.  I am wearing the same red and white striped shirt I wear on all my vacations.

Beatrice: Hold on, I don't see you.  I'm looking in the left hand corner.

Kenny: Oh, I can see you now, Waldo.  It helps if you squint a little, Beatrice. 

Waldo: Okay. Let's just move on, shall we?  [flick] Now here I am at the St. Louis Arch.  As you can see, I was exhausted at this point from hiking up all those stairs.

Rick: Are you the one at the top there, Wally?  Right behind that man wheeling those chickens in a crate?

Waldo: NO, NO!  I'm right there!  Dead in the middle.  I'm wearing that dopey hat and that striped shirt and hat again.  We go through this every year, folks!   I wear that bright, tacky stuff on vacation SO YOU CAN SPOT ME IN THE PHOTOS! 

Rick: Well Wally-boy, I tell you, it's just not working.  I can't see a danged thing. 

Kenny: I told you Rick, it helps if you squint a bit.  Make yourself go all cross-eyed and goofy. 

Beatrice: I think you are thinking of those 3D books, Kenny.  Waldo, you aren't in those 3D books are you?

Waldo: FOR THE LOVE OF PETE!  Will you all please just look a little closer? I'm in all these pictures for crying out loud!  Let's move on...

Beatrice: Yeah Waldo, the thing is, I really should get going.  I have a sitter waiting and all.

Waldo: But I've only shown two pictures!  Here, take a look at this one. [flip] Here I am on a serene lake in the mountains of Wyoming.

Kenny: Seriously Wally, why are there all those people there? I didn't know there were that many people in Wyoming. And where are you?

Waldo: I don't know!  It seems like no matter where I go, there are always thousands of people.  It's like they are following me or something. 

Randy: Yeah, I really need to get going too.  What with traffic and all.

Waldo: What traffic?  It's 8:30 at night.

Randy: Yeah... well, I think they announced some bridge construction last night.  I'll see you later Waldo.

Kenny: Me too. The bars aren't open all night, you know.  Later Wally.

Beatrice: My sitter just texted me.  She said I am needed right away.  Something about the diaper genie getting stuck in the disposal. Great pics, Wally.  I'll see you at work.

Waldo: Yeah guys.  Thanks for coming.  Same time next year?  Guys?  Guys...

Love it. Maybe there should be a "Where's Waldo Nudity Edition." That might make things easier.

Baby Sister said...

Poor Waldo...he gets so much crap.

purseblogger said...

*sigh*
When will Waldo catch a break?

Noelle said...

I'm on waldo's side too...let's pitch in and buy him a new shirt.

I don't know. I think the guy's a bit self-indulgent. It's not enough that he's in a hundred books, but he does slide show presentations of his travels. How is it that his shirt is never dirty, too? (I guess I'm just jealous of his fame and cleanliness.) xo

Rachel said...

You cracketh me up.

(Even if you *did* laugh at my horsie misfortune today...)

It triggered flashbacks of the time a sportscaster visited our high school and we were on the news. Only I was wearing a red and white striped sweatshirt and you can imagine how it went picking me out of the pep rally crowd on tv. EEK!

Melissa @Suger Coat It said...

Haha. And that Where's Wally is kind of hot. I'm just sayin'.

Ms Bibi said...

You would think he'll have easier time with that shirt and matching toque, but NO....poor Waldo.

Kelly said...

That Waldo does know how to attract a crowd. Except when he's showing vacation slides that is. Very clever!

My fav was the part about the diaper genie in the disposal. Where do you come up with this stuff?

Joann Mannix said...

Waldo needs a new shirt, a fluorescent orange and he'll be all set.
While he's at it, he might want to think about a new name, too. Maybe Maximilian or Jake. It might help him feel less invisible.

Jenn said...

LMAO!! Poor Waldo, he just can't win, can he? Maybe if he went with an orange and white striped outfit instead of the red, people would take note of him more????

baygirl32 said...

Poor Waldo, can't catch a break at all

Copyboy said...

How was this not a SNL skit? Waldo you fool, I'll grab a brew with you.

The Church Lady said...

LOL @ Kristina P!!!

I LOVED Where's Waldo books. You gave me an idea for a great Halloween costume for next year! Thanks!

Great post!!!!

Eva Gallant said...

Too funny. Even Waldo has trouble keeping people interested in his vacation photos. I'm not alone.

Heff said...

I suggest he change to a shade of "Caution Orange" to help his plight.

Saimi said...

Maybe Waldo should bring out his Christmas photos to share and see if he has better luck. Well, maybe not all that red might be confusing...

Poor Waldo!

Missy said...

LOL! I like Kristina's Idea!

Melinda said...

Now I want to find a Where's Waldo book...

Pat said...

Hahahahahahahahaha! Love it!

The Invisible Seductress said...

I'd be patient with Waldo.. Wouldn't take much for that sweater to get tattered and discolored and we got another "Freddie Kruegeresque" guy on our hands..Only THIS TIME....Waldo finds YOU!!

Terry said...

I'm with Noelle...let's get him a new shirt!! Something with ummm maybe some green glitter!! ;)

Okie said...

lol...nice. I dressed up as Waldo one year....people kept asking for rewards for finding me. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Poor Waldo!

MiMi said...

Oh Waldo, you are a tricky lil dude.

mice_aliling said...

I'm sorry Waldo has to wear the same outfit. POor him!

Emmy said...

Lol! That is so true there are always lots of people with Waldo

mintifresh said...

Who wants to see vacation slides anyway??

"Miss Bee" said...

I agree with the Church Lady - what a great halloween costume! All night I'll just say, "Can anybody find me? Where's Waldo?"

I'm sure I'll annoy everyone but it will be so much fun!

Julie said...

I'm sorry but you'll have to tell Waldo I can't find him most of the time either. Maybe just not squinty enough.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care and have a blessed week.

Silver Strands said...

I'm actually pretty good at spotting Waldo. (now that we've owned the books 20+ years .... shhhhh)

Have a great day Cheeseboy. And say hi to your family for me.

McKenzie said...

Haha nice!

Marnie said...

Hilarious. He needs a make-over.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

This is why you are a good teacher I am sure! The great sense of humor!

Unknown Mami said...

Poor unappreciated Waldo.

Kelley said...

Ha! That is exactly how it went last time I was at Waldo's house. I guess some things never change...

M-Cat said...

I think Wally might be my grandparents incarnated.

Stupid slide shows

T said...

My sister threatened to name her baby Waldo... I was seriously concerned because I think they were dead serious.

Imagine my relief when instead they named my nephew after a cartoon cat... a wonderful wonderful cat...

of course, then my striped baby onesie and beanie were useless.

Lindsay Blogs said...

I've always sucked at Where's Waldo. I could only wish he and I were friends so he could just show me where the heck he is in the pictures.

SueLovesCherries said...

Maybe if he tried blue and white stripes they might see him better!

Kristen said...

LOVED this! We used to have those tubes filled with water and glitter and hidden in them was a little tiny Waldo! What on EARTH were we thinking???

Pat Tillett said...

I can NEVER find waldo. I can't see the sailboat in the middle of those 3D posters either.
Maybe if Waldo would mix up the wardrobe just a bit, he might be a bit more popular.

another great one! you are on a roll...
