The Wonderful World of Psychotic Comments

The Wonderful World of Psychotic Comments brings you our favorite comments of the week on various WDWNT articles. Read some highlights from this segment below:

Bob Iger Defends Marvel Films After Disparaging Comments Made by Martin Scorsese

Hilly: “Coming from the guy who made Godfather 3. Not sure it’s wise to throw stones.”

Child Attacked by Anteater During Disney Cruise Line Offshore Excursion; Family Now Seeking Damages

Ken G: “One more thing: ANTEATERS DO NOT HAVE TEETH! They use their tongue to lap up ants. So this whole thing is bogus and a money grab!”

Jim C: “I don’t believe the child was truly Attacked by an Anteater. Anteaters have very Long, very Sharp claws used for digging and defense/attack. They can inflict serious damage immediately.”

Ken G in response to another commenter: “So baby goats and lambs scare you do they? Then don’t go in! Take responsibility for your own actions. And by the way, this was a third-party facility, not owned by Disney. And who goes to Cartagena, Colombia anyway? They’re lucky it was only an anteater that attacked them!”

Cast Members Now Allowed Necklaces and Longer Beards with Updated “Disney Look” Appearance Standards at Parks and Resorts

Rena: “Well with this happening, can we PLEASE get some control with guest dress code??? I for one am sick and tired of seeing butts hanging out of too short of shorts and crop tops showing rolls of fat. I mean come people, have some decorum and take pride in how you look. This is supposed to be a “family” theme park after all and I don’t want to sit at a table or on the seat of a ride where someone’s “stuff” has been on. It’s just too out of control and needs to be reigned back in.”

Bob: “Every time someone writes the phrase “Walt is turning in his grave,” Walt, Roy and Lillian all turn in their graves…”

Marie in response to another commenter: “I promise you, Walt doesn’t care. He would have hated you though…”

Chewbacca: “Everyone complaining about the lack of magic when they see people with beards needs to get over themselves quick. There’s nothing magical about clean-shaven people! Besides, some of the most magical people in fiction have beards: Merlin, Gandalf, Dumbledore…”
