no screaming allowed

From Sacramento, this story of an amusement park that is trying to enforce a no-screaming policy on one of their rides, ironically called The Screamer.

As passengers are strapped into the two metal baskets, the operator recites this warning: "We are required to remove you from this ride if you make any noise. If you feel you might make a noise, please cover your mouth tightly with you hand, like this. (The operator then covers mouth with hand). If we hear any noise through your hand, we will remove you from the ride. So please remain silent and enjoy the screamer."

This is in response to neighbors who complained of all the noise at the amusement park.

What's next? Banning grunting at the local exercise gym?

Boy, I wish I lived in Sacramento.

Go on the ride, scream, and sue for violating my right to free speech!

People are RETARDED.

zngsome friends and i went to hersheypark where they have a pirate ship that swings back and forth. we tried to out do each other with our screaming. the other people on the ride said later that we made the ride a lot more fun with it. if people want to gripe about screaming on rides, they need to have their hemmroids removed. maybe that will help. by the way thanks for the note. it made the wife laugh.

Thanks for the visit, Lee, Freddie, and Lamar. I wonder what's next. No laughing in the movie theater?

(ps to Lamar: I'm here to serve!)

All I can think of is a classic line from Jon Water's film, Pecker.

"No balls on the forehead."
