It’s not really a trend, as far as I know. But someone fell in love with it and… here we are.Is it actually a trend? It seems like one they set themselves, and while I don't inherently dislike it, their merchandise and parks have become far too over-saturated with it.
Something can't be "very" unique.
Obviously it's a pretty common misusage (I've probably even done it myself when writing something quickly -- like on a forum), but an edited PR post should be better. It's a pet peeve of mine when it comes to edited writing.
I'm mostly just poking a little fun, but I find those words to be similar. I get your point that "very unique" is like "very pregnant" - in its purest definition, it's an absolute. Some people find common / uncommon to be equally binary.Goes back to what I said about edited/professional writing!

I can't help but keep thinking this is an obscene amount of money and time for effectively a wild mouse with spinny cars.
But don’t you think it’s mighty “convenient” that they carefully dismantled the crazy mouse from AK just as they’re ramping up things in Cosmic Rewind?Did someone just compare this launch coaster with programmed and controlled cars to a wild mouse?!?
Ooooh people really are wigging out on here.
I know it’s popular to hate on Disney these days, but take a breath…
