13 bomb threat calls to Universal is okay, but you make one little bomb threat to Disney and they arrest you.;)

Oh, well, I suppose we'll forgive him, lol. He seems like a nice fella.

Hmmm, that's one for the book on "How to make friends and influence people"! :-)

Are they sure Disney customer service reps didn't misinterpret a harmless compliment about one of their rides eg. "Splash Mountain is Da Bomb" :-)

B.T.W. As a slogan at says: "If you struggle with loneliness, you are not alone, yet you are alone, so very alone"!

Best, B
