SFGAM looking for plungers

Wednesday, February 2, 2005 5:26 PM
Got this e-mail today:

Dear Acers,
Six Flags Great America is looking to brave people to jump into the Lake Michigan in support of Special Olympics Illinois athletes. This Special Olympics Polar Plunge will take place March 5. You must be willing to jump in looking like Mr. Six. Six Flags Great America has contacted me and asked me to get 10-15 Acers to jump in. If you do jump in the lake you will get into the media day for sure.There also MIGHT be some prizes too. If you are interested in dressing up as a Mr. Six look-alike and taking the plunge with other area plungers, please contact the public relations office at 847-249-2133 ext. 6100 to sign up! This is for Acers only so spread the word to other Acers.

I won't even get in the water of Lake Michigan during the summer.

No way would I jump in during March when the water temperature will probably be just above freezing.

It seems to be for a good cause.

Kick The Sky's avatar Jumped into Lake Michigan once on New Years (it's a Milwaukee tradition) but I was VERY drunk and I don't wish to get THAT drunk again...

Certain victory.

Gotta agree with Chi-town on the southern part of Lake Michigan, youre likely to come out with Mr Six's hair do.

I think ALL Acer's should have to do it. It would make up for all the tv time they hog up, all the bad interviews, all the poor on ride commentary, and all the mis-information they give. Dressing like Mr. Six would be an improvement, better than shirts with defunct rides that closed 37 years ago, nerdy vests, and those damn fanny packs. Where can I donate if this happens?

If I didn't live 4 hours away I'd do it in a minute.

I thought that Lake Michigan was cold enough in May when I was a kid. I can't imagine what it feels like in early March. It would probably stop my aging ticker!

I guess SF has been reading some of our threads and this is their way of telling us to go jump in the lake.

Hey, thanks for the advice. But, as fate may have it, I was dealt a royal flush tonight at Bally's AC poker room. The outcome. I do not have to work tomorrow. Or next Monday. Or Tuesday. I bet you do.

Yes, but at least we don't have to worry about looking like a complete prejudiced tool like you do when you wake up tomorrow. Might as well make the bed sheets into a costume to wear around while your in Vegas.

Poking fun of ACE is one thing. Prejudice comments steared negativly at a whole group are uncalled for.

But, then you'll probably just not reply to this like you always do. I'd hate to live my life filled with so much bitterness at people I don't even know.

Edit: Spelling, and I probably didn't get it all. *** Edited 2/3/2005 7:17:59 AM UTC by TeknoScorpion***

Jumping into a lake for "Special" Oylympics. Why don't they just make that an event and they can raise the money themselves?

Hmmm... read the entire thread, and I have to ask:

Am I really the only one who read the topic and was wondering if SFGAm was having a shortage of bathroom supplies? Or rumors of a heist from their storehouses? :)

No, I figured it was some publicity stunt having to do with plungers for the upcoming Hurricane Harbor.

I really don't see where Agent Johnson said anything that was prejudiced. He basically just stereotyped something.

ARN&R have been doing it for years.

So relax sparky. :)

Lord Gonchar's avatar Admittedly, AJ's comment ellicted a chuckle from me.

RGB, the sig is a quote from a site that sells T-shirts meant to shock, offend, humor and generally push the limits. It's one of their designs.

Not commenting on the appropriateness of the sig (in addition to the togo tolerance gene, I was also dealt the "can't offend me" gene) but rather, the lack of creativity in copying something you read on a T-shirt. :)

I wasn't necessarily offended, just wondering what that has to do with the price of tea in China.

ALL THE?

You make it sound like there's so much of it. But if you added every boot-lick, fake 'woo' scream and flatulent factoid drop together, it would still be naught but one pink pimple on the giant hairy ass which is bad television.

NOTE: Severe fecal impaction may render the above words highly debatable.

No, I thought that as well..... :O
