SeaWorld stock surges, while Blackfish denied Oscar recognition

Posted Thursday, January 16, 2014 11:56 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Fans of “Blackfish,” a documentary that casts SeaWorld in a harsh light, were dismayed to learn Thursday morning that the film had not been nominated for an Academy Award. Stock market investors, on the other hand, were overjoyed. Shares of SeaWorld Entertainment surged 8.39 percent on Thursday to close at $33.59 a share, the stock’s highest level since August.

Right up there with Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Robert Redford, and Oprah, it is.

Sesame Place is a related park? Anybody want to help me set up a kickstarter for a new documentary called "Yellowbird"? We could even try to get Lynyrd Skynyrd to let us use Freebird.

That poor bird is unable to fly, forced to sing songs about the alphabet, and made to co-habitate with aggressive monsters who live in trash cans.

FREE BIG BIRD!

I'd prefer Peter Griffin's favorite tune, Surfin' Bird. I have the original by the Trashmen, and covers by the Ramones, the Cramps, and Pee-Wee Herman. I'll be glad to lend them to you!

So, now you're advocating making the poor animal surf, something it's not inclined to do in its natural habitat, for your entertainment?

I'm calling Joan Jett, Pat Benotar, and PETA right. now.

Sesame Place has been part of the company for a long time. Is that not commonly known?
