Thanks for the explanation, RavenTTD. I'll make sure I continue not to read Playa's comments like usual because I don't understand his humor.

I am a police radio dispatcher so naturally my take on the situation is prosecute them to the fullest extent. There is no excuse to act like that toward a law enforcement officer, whether it is in an amusment park or not.

I take jokes pretty lighthartedly pretty much no matter what the topic, but in reality,think of how bad it sucks to just go to work for a day and put up with people like that..... :(

The cops are always trying to frame small-town folks. You know they are lying to cover up tazering an innocent small town girl.

INNOCENT? Perhaps you've misunderstood the meaning of the word.... I wouldn't exactly call a pubescent teenage girl who goes around beating on police officers an "innocent little lamb."

i-ron-y an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.

While all humor attempts are certainly appreciated…it is best when using the irony technique to confirm that the subject of the humor is indeed contrary to what would usually be expected. In this particular case…contact made…it’s going…it’s going…FOUL BALL!

http://www.local6.com/news/13362859/detail.html

A Disney security guard said three teens and two adults who were visiting the Magic Kingdom from Long Island Sunday were spitting at guests and cursing.

It was fun for a moment when there was hope and anticipation that this story would be unlike the majority. But in the end, the stereotype was reinforced with a few city thugs acting like…well…city thugs! ;)

Chuckles to the light-hearted moment though…the truth in the story is a much sadder thought.

O rly? It said Long Island, not Bed-Stuy!


Long Island is known for its affluence and high quality of life. According to the 2000 Census, Nassau County is the second richest county per capita in New York State (behind New York County, which is coterminous with the New York City borough of Manhattan) and the fifth richest in the United States. Suffolk County is known for beach towns, including the world-renowned Hamptons, and for the most eastern part of the Island, Montauk Point, home of Montauk Lighthouse.

Long Island is also known for its strong middle class accenting a strong dedication to hard work, suburban homeownership, investment in schools and education and people who are strongly committed to family living and local community events.


Sounds like baseball, apple pie, upper middle-class and cop punching to me!

Maybe that foul ball hit the pole...

Inference. Literacy. They're words fewer and fewer people can even spell--much less practice.

But of course, the dim bulbs are still allowed to vote!

Last November, an election judge had to explain to a 50-something, decidedly non-urban man submitting his ballot in front of me that he had to try again, since he somehow managed to vote for TWO DIFFERENT GOVERNORS.

That is why people write in Mickey Mouse. Once he gets elected no one will dare attack police officers at his place.

Yeah, but after his scandal in Paris I don't think he would be able to get the votes he needs in the south.

The whole Disney party will remain at a gross disadvantage at the polls until someone can legitimately explain ,with both being dogs, why Goofy walks upright on two legs, while Pluto walks on all four.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Island

A little more data from that Wikipedia cut and paste that somebody used...but forgot to link…complete with hard-hitting commentary from somebody with nothing to hide.


This is EXACTLY what happens when those small-town people are allowed in amusement parks!

Long Island is an island in southeast New York, USA. It has an area of 1,377 square miles (3,567 km²) and a population of 7,448,618 as of the 2000 census, with the population estimated at 7,559,372 as of July 1, 2006, making it the largest island in the 48 contiguous U.S. states and the most populated in any U.S. state or territory.

…small town? Methinks somebody is changing the story as the post count goes up.


They always have to congregate together in large, hairy snaggle-toothed bunches. They sneak in hooch from their stills back home, throw up hillbilly signs at innocent passers-by and start reciting lyrics from those ridiculous country-western albums. I hate the very sight of them even BEFORE they start line jumping. Wait...I meant beating up cops. Isn't that a bit worse?

Long Island is known for its affluence and high quality of life. According to the 2000 Census, Nassau County is the second richest county per capita in New York State (behind New York County, which is coterminous with the New York City borough of Manhattan) and the fifth richest in the United States.

Snaggle-toothed…? While I certainly appreciate the cheap humor the word has to offer…seems to be reach to think this is what one might be thinking of in describing Long Island…no?

I do appreciate the straight-forward description given for the only unprotected citizenry left in our country. It is nice to see some have the complete freedom to shoot from the hip with nary a scrape of the tongue…and certainly no need for code (i.e. urban, city, etc) words. The last bastion of stereotype humor on full display…


Anyway--Ban them all, that's what I say. Don't even let 'em through the gates. Save the park for good people with a proper urban upbringing!

Even the uncensored resort to code language when the “uncomfortable” subject presents.


And don't you dare call me racist.

Who could…? You were just utilizing unprotected country-folk to make a point. Lord knows they are NEVER pre-judged in this society.


Screw your 'facts,' I just don't like 'em! If I can grasp any straw that supports my personal bias, then curl myself around it I will!

i-ron-y an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.

You know irony…as in…I pick and choose my Wikipedia “facts” to support my indefensible position…but make fun of those hypothetical persons who might do the same to challenge my propaganda.

Indeed there is one person grasping for straws in attempt to defend his personal bias...

On further review…He swings…He misses…He hits his head with his own bat!

In all seriousness…it was quite funny right up until these kids ended up being from Long Island. At that point the IRONY of reality versus the point Playa was trying to make…reeked for illumination. Keep trying…one of these days a Good-Old-Boy will cross the line at some park…and all attempts to view society through the prism of race will be meaningful…at least on CoasterBuzz where such worldviews are always good for some support...even if you have to change your argument mid-thread and cherry-pick Wikipedia data to defend your bias! ;)

I still don't get it. What is Bed-Stuy? What does it have to do with Long Island? What does Long Island have to do with good ol' boys or racism? What does racism have to do with police defending himself from being beat up by a girl from Long Island? Is Playa making fun of me because I can't understand his "witty humor"? What does it all mean?

I feel like I'm watching an episode of LOST. For every answer, there are two more questions.
