Morpheus on… Laughable Legal Actions

Let’s start the year (and decade) with something TRULY absurd.

ALLEGEDLY, while a 27-year-old woman (let’s call her April – since it’s her name) was visiting Disney’s Epcot, a guy in a Donald Duck outfit fondled her boob and said something lewd.

Now of course, a reasonable response would have been to have kicked Don in the nuts (which would have been easy, since he doesn’t wear trousers) – or to simply have complained to security – in which case the “cast member” (which Disney call their theme-park characters) would probably have gotten canned and ended up as a football mascot – or Ronald McDonald.

But NO. She is SUEING the Disney Company (whose equity and assets currently total nearly a hundred BILLION US dollars) claiming that – two-and-half-years on – she still suffers from… wait for it… “post-traumatic stress”, “flashbacks”, “cold sweats”, “acute anxiety”, “insomnia”, “muscle-contraction headaches”, “nausia”, “nightmares”, “digestive problems” and “other permanent injuries”.

Oh dear – you’ve gotta laugh, haven’t you? If THIS reporter got GROPED by Donald Duck – he’d settle for a pair of tickets to “Tron: Legacy”.

    Do Ducks HAVE nuts?

    Needs a few ludicrous headlines to really pump up the stupidity (and greed) of such people. How about:

    “Woman goosed by duck!”

    And I’m shifting into rhyming slang mode now before remarking that if she got all those ailments from a gentle touch-up just think what the list would be like if he’d “Donald Duck’d” her!

    Oh and if Jessica Rabbit wants to molest ME at any time, I’ll pay HER!

    I have DREAMS about Jessica! AND Betty Rubble! Apparently, the animators slipped a couple of “naughty” frames into Jessica’s appearance in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” – which were only discovered when it was released on video! The frames have since been removed – leaving copies of the early release as COLLECTIBLE. Some people should get a LIFE!

  3. That slow version of Why Don’t You Do Right (composed by Joe McCoy and sung by Jessica Rabbit in the film) just sent me. On CD, sadly, I can only find the original fast Peggy Lee, 1942, Benny Goodman version. As to the tall lady herself, she is fine for YOU guys. I am astonished, however, that the detective character was enamoured of her because he was of normal height, like me. Weird.

    I have BOTH versions of it, by Peggy. The original fast one, on a 78 – and the sexy, slow, Fifties version on VT. I WAS going to upload the latter onto YouTube – but someone beat me to it! So here is THEIR upload… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_lnE_L_E8M – enjoy! (My version has better video quality – but if I uploaded it, it would be relegated to “duplicate” status – waste of time).
