experience without risk. Think about Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Va, the amusement park which used to call itself "Old Country." It's a caricature of Europe, with busty beer fraus serving watered-down brews—the park is owned by Anheuser-Busch, so that's no surprise—at the year-round "Oktoberfest" garden, minstrel-like "Italians" juggling, and polite, non-smoking "Frenchmen" sporting berets for the flip-flopped masses venturing out of suburbia, another façade of perfection. For another example, think about the South of the Border theme park in South Carolina, with its snoozing, racist "mascot" Pedro. His iconic sombrero decorates thousands of bumper stickers and T-shirts exporting a cartoonish—and particularly American—version of Mexico.
