When I worked for Pillsbury I did the pillsburry dough boy thing, got dress up in the costume which was hot and it stunk. You had a back pack that carried a compressor and batteries that inflatted the suit.

You could not see, hear or walk straight and needed someone with you at all times.

I can say the guy ( or girl) in the suit takes way more abuse then being dished out.


I was kicked by little kids, punched in the stomack pushed and shoved. Most of the time I had no idea who I was shacking hands with unless I could hear a voice.

Did Donald grab her boob? He ( or she) may have and not even known it. My opion? Some one looking for a quick pay off.

Plush characters are furry people magnets. The swollen, swinging bellies. The oversized feet. The unblinking synthetic eyeballs.

Hug me.

We trust our children to pose with Piglet, to thumbs-up with Thumper. But every so often, a story emerges detailing the sordid, grabby exploits of beloved characters.

Upper Darby woman alleges she got groped by Donald Duck
Quote:
Magolon claimed that she was groped by a Disney employeed dressed in a Donald Duck costume while on vacation in 2008.
Quote:
In the court filing, Magolon said that after the character Donald Duck touched his wing to her breast, she suffered post-traumatic stress disorder, muscle contraction,headaches, acute anxiety, headaches, nausea, cold sweats, insomnia, nightmares, flashbacks, and digestive problems.
This one actually made me laugh. I thought it'd be one of those joke lists where they mention headaches over and over.

Quote:
...Magolon has been kept her from her job duties, causing her to loss money.

The lawsuit charged Walt Disney Parks and Resorst of negligence...

You missed the best line:

The complaint also said that Magolon's vacation was ruined.
She has medical problems, doctor bills, she can't work, oh, and her vacation was ruined!

I'm surprised Disney settled. They have an excellent track record in defending these type of lawsuits.

Maybe they stuck to the lyrics:

Who's got the sweetest disposition?
One guess, that's who?
Who'd never, ever start an argument?
Who never shows a bit of temperament?
Who's never wrong but always right?
Who'd never dream of starting a fight?
Who gets stuck with all the bad luck?
No one - but Donald Duck!
