Homeland Security worried about chemicals at SeaWorld

Posted Friday, December 12, 2008 9:15 AM | Contributed by CPJ

SeaWorld Orlando could become a target for terrorists trying to obtain chemicals, according to a preliminary review of businesses, universities and other facilities across the country by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The park has to provide the government with more detailed vulnerability assessments.

Wow. i wonder how much this will cost SeaWorld?

Help me out here. What chemicals could they use that couldn't be obtained from a pet store that specializes in Salt Water fish and/or your local Home Depot?

This is just another typical government smoke and mirrors issue. It's not the chemicals they're worried about terrorists obtaining to use as weapons. It's the giant penguin exhibit. Have you ever had to battle an army of penguins? I hope you never do.

Penguins with rockets are FAR more terrifying than sharks with laser beams.

Watch out for orcas with suicide bombs. Gives a whole new meaning to the term 'killer whales'.

They wouldn't use orcas...too obvious, man. Come on...killer whales? You would expect that kind of thing. Penguins on the other hand....

It's probably all that dihydrogen monoxide Sea World has laying around. ;)

Lying around? Its an integral part of the park. Dare I say it would not exist without dihydrogen monoxide.

^Not to mention they dare to mix it with hydrogen hydroxide. Thats an explosive combination when not done delicately.

I wouldn't trust Chumley though. He never seemed too bright, but you have to be smart to play dumb. Second billing makes walruses do some crazy things.
