Turn on, sneak in, and get kicked out at SeaWorld Orlando

Published: April 29, 2009 at 12:04 PM

Kudos to the security team at SeaWorld Orlando for yesterday taking out someone who ought not be anywhere near a theme park.

And kudos as well to the Orange County, Florida sheriff's deputy who prepared a "stunning" report about the incident. Here's the Sentinel's summary.

Go read it. I'm at a loss to describe the weirdness of which some people are capable. I am, however, disappointed that Shamu didn't Tweet this.

The nominees for TPI comment of the year are

Brian Emery ...

(And by the way, Mr. Niles, "TPI Comment of the Year" is an award-worthy consideration).

The winner could have a little plaque ... if he didn't brush regularly.

Yikes, I just went to go see the Grateful Dead at MSG in NY the other night and I saw plenty of shirtless men on LSD. I have heard of getting in touch with things on Psychedelics, but never a taser gun. My good god, I can't even imagine what was going through this guys mind!!!!

NEVER!!!!...brrrrrrzzzz...NEVER!!!!!.....brrrrrrrrrzzz.

Man, read the whole article at the sentinel.

I love the fact that he got away and started using a trash can cover as a shield. I am speechless on how awesome this is.

Thanks Sea World! You know how to catch an unpaying, drugged hitman before he wreck havoc on the tourists and locals!

Perhaps it is time for the rest of the Avengers to sit Captain America down for an intervention. For a superhero, he has really started to embarrass himself publicly. :)
