Man wins lawsuit after being stuck in Disney's "It's a Small World" for half hour

He's lucky he's alive. I'd have bludgeoned myself with one of the dolls after the first ten minutes.
 
Not many can survive one full ride of Its A Small World...this man should have a Statue erected in his honor outside the entrance of the ride.
 
Plaintiff: "Your honor, my client endured horrendous pain and suffering at the hands of the Walt Disney Company."

Defendant: "That's ridiculous. Your honor, he was stuck in an amusement park ride for half an hour while we made repairs. That's mildly inconvenient, but it's hardly painful."

Plaintiff: "It was 'It's A Small World.' And the music was on the whole time."

Judge: "Good god! The court finds in favor of the plaintiff for $8,000! AND MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL!"

"Now go dig up Walt Disney and slap him in the face!"
 
I can see this being turned into a psychological horror film.
 
with "its a small world after all" blasting for that long. I would have drowned myself
 
Oh okay, I thought he sued because of having to endure the song, but it was actually for legitimate medical reasons.

I was gonna say if he was suing over the ride it would be like playing Russian Roulette and complaining that the gun went off in your hand. :o

Panic attacks and high blood pressure. Or, in other words, having to endure the song for that long.
 
The dude has to be emotionally scarred for life now.
 
I'd get freaked out after about five minutes, wondering if that one Holland doll I keep staring at is actually getting closer to me.....
 
On the plus side, he had a chance to do what I always wanted to do: pee off the side of the boat.

That's great. Peeing off the side of a boat in front of the prying eyes of dozens of soulless puppet children.

This.

I imagine the experience was like that one episode of Courage the Cowardly Dog, where Courage was stuck in the lair of Doc Gerbil, and they had irritating and disturbing chorus playing on a loop: it's Doc Gerbil's World...
 
I went to DW last month and got stuck on the ride that goes on in the Epcot Dome. My car was literally a few inches from the dismount section but we had to remain seated for nearly 20 minutes for our "safety".

Where's my money?
 
So you guys want to pee in front of children. OK.

Personally I hate the It's a small world song. It enrages me for no apparent reason. I hear it and I just get furious, I have no idea why. I would have started destroying things if that happened to me. Of course I never would have went there in the first place but if they did and that happened, they'd need the tranq darts to stop my Hulk like rampage.
