In Case You’ve Been Wondering…

5 Nov

November 5, 2016

I started this blog back in 2009 and Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride has been the name since Day One. The Editors and Staff pushed for a different name but I overruled them. I just didn’t feel that it was appropriate to use the F word three times in a title. 

But that name, that name, where did we get that name…?


So why “tepid”? It was meant to be ironic (and also to lower expectations) but also a play on the fact that despite being called a “wild ride,” Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride was one of the least wild rides at Disney, suitable for little kids.

True Fact: For the first two years of this blog, not a day went by that I didn’t consider changing the name.

    I like the title. It shows you have a sense of humor.

      I always liked it but I used to worry that no one would get it, and I also worried that if the blog took off the name would seem ridiculous. But after some time passed I realized that I was stuck with it. I briefly tried branding as Mr. BTR (like Kentucky Fried Chicken became KFC) but it didn’t stick.

      The latest “never wipe” is covered up again. I keep waiting for it to return.
