"'Six Flags Killer' Still at Large"

The scary thing is that the suspect looks a bit like one of my friends.

Saw this today and near shat myself. The Onion's the most consistantly funny thing on the web these days, and this article more than gives ARN&R a run for its money.

Gotta love the commitment to fact the Onion has, even with a farcial news story.

"I have men working in shifts on rides, from 10 a.m. until the park closes at 8 p.m.," Moynihan said. "Officers from neighboring departments have volunteered to cover some of the more popular attractions, such as the American Eagle and Superman: Ultimate Flight."

Moynihan had to develop a unique system to oversee the patrol of a park as big and fun as Great America.

"We gather by the double-decker Columbia Carousel twice a day to compare notes, discuss leads, and eat funnel cakes," Moynihan said. "We also keep in constant radio contact with one another. Instead of the usual 'all clear,' we've been using an updated, site-specific check-in."

I swear a park employee wrote that article! That was one of the funnier things I've read in a while.

Joe "sure did "shat" all over anything AR&R has done!" C. :)

Considering the paper used to be based in Madison, Wisc., I bet most of the employees have been to SFGAm many times.

I thought the story this week about the kid everybody hates was way funnier.

Yeah, that 4th grader article was the best they have had in a few weeks. Just because I can remember that kid way back in elementary who was treated the same way.

And, no, I was not that kid.

"As adventure-filled as this investigation has been, we can't focus all of our man power on Great America," Moynihan said. "By now, the killer could be as far away as Magic Mountain."

Classic! :)

Just one quick *perusal* of the article and I already have my prime suspect....that's right, none of than Daffy Duck. I think if you take a quick look at the photo, he looks really *quite suspicious*....:)

Nice to have a little levity on the day of such sad news in the industry...

Thank you so much Bill! I was getting ready to embarrass myself by and blame it on Granny and that ostrich*. ;)

Joe, you can't take my "shat" from me! Did we decide that was a verb or a noun anyways?
