The REAL GATOR Ride!

The REAL GATOR Ride!

NBC claims a father and son were recently ziplining at the Gatorland amusement park in Gatorland, Florida when their line became stuck over a pond full of gators! They dangled 40 feet in the air for 25 minutes. The park also says they were never in any danger because their staffers are trained on how to protect guests from danger. (What other attractions to they have there? The broken glass sand volleyball game?)

A California man decided he needed to smoke after a wreck — and ran toward¬†his burning SUV to light up a cigarette from the flame. Robert Quigley rear-ended another vehicle on Interstate 80 right in front of a state trooper who watched as he switched seats with his female passenger. The shirtless 25-year-old, who appeared “highly intoxicated,” broke away from questioning by the cops in order to run back to the fire and light up a smoke. According to the police report, Quigley suffered a burn on his neck from his seatbelt. No one else was injured in the crash. (Maybe he should take up vaping.)

And finally, A very adult play based on “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” is out of court and headed to Broadway. Deadline.com says the estate of THEODORE SEUSS GEISEL, better known as Dr. Seuss,¬†sued playwright MATTHEW LOMBARDO over his one woman show, “Who’s Holiday” about a now grown up Cindy Lou Who who is a drug addict living in a trailer park after she murdered her husband. A U.S. Court of Appeals ruled this week that the play is parody and protected as (quote), “fair use.” A limited Broadway run of “Who’s Holiday” is planned for late 2019.
