The theme park idiot of the week award

Published: April 25, 2007 at 9:05 PM

And the winner of today's "total idiot who used to work at a theme park award" goes to... the SeaWorld Orlando employee who told a co-worker "I'm going to do what happened at Virginia Tech here at Sea World," according to a sheriff's report.

Needless to say, said idiot is now a former SeaWorld employee and enjoying the hospitality of the Orange County Jail. Sheriff's deputies found no firearms in the accused's possession, just a paintball gun and a baseball bat in his car.
