Donald Duck: Masher?



An Upper Darby woman named April Magolon has filed a lawsuit against Disney World two years after allegedly being groped by an employee in a Donald Duck costume.

According to the suit, Magolon was holding her child and seeking an autograph when the duck groped her breast.

Two questions: What sort of person asks a mascot for an autograph? How did she expect the Donald to hold a pen in those big clothy hands?

According to the story:
Magolon claims she was so traumatized by the incident that she can no longer work.

She claims the alleged incident has caused her to suffer post-traumatic stress disorder, flashbacks, nausea, cold sweats, insomnia, nightmares and digestive problems that are preventing her from attending her usual duties and occupation, causing her great financial detriment and loss. According to the lawsuit, she believes her injuries are permanent.
She is seeking in excess of $50,000.

The story brings to mind an old joke:

Q: Why did Mickey Mouse divorce Minnie?
A: Because she was f---ing Goofy.

Lawsuits don't come much goofier than this one.

This one made my day - love the comments both here and at philly.com - puns all around! But why is delcotimes closing comments on the story? Its not racist, commentary wasn't dirty, it was just funny.

The kids playing the characters are trained to sign autographs in the style of their character - meaning that every "Donald Duck" at the park will sign the name the same way. My son has an autograph book from two years ago filled with signatures, all of them in their same theme. Should have sued daisy for flirting with me (Dang!)

So you're the kind of person who asks a mascot for an autograph and the mascots do it all the time.

Questions answered.

I think they're required by the mascots union to accidently grope parents nearby when signing autographs.

The autographs are a big deal for the kids. Disney sells autograph books at every gift shop (and we all know there's a ton of them at their parks, starting with the end of each ride)

Why dont you report real news, Harrahs Casino fires most of their employees. The last meeting I attended , We were told that Harrahs Casino has a 89% turnover. They allow the young men say crude omments to the women co workers. Management is so poor and HR does nothing when you report anything that happenes there. Unemployment allows Harrahs Casino win against their fired employees. The Unemployment rate would be much hire if they allow the fired Harrahs Casino employees win.

Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Thank you, I appreciate it!

Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

Hi! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share.

With thanks!

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not
sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
