The Capital City Goofball would never have acted so inappropriately.

So that guy even wears the suit on his off days?

I'm going to be the brave one and say this is a bullshiat lawsuit and the woman should feel bad and be used as cannon fodder.

The Philly Frenetic would never have done anything like this.

Lawsuit may very well be (and probably is) bullshiat, but is it really that hard for these farks to send out a handler beforehand to ask certain people if it's okay if the Phanatic/Chicken/Sausage/whatever engage you in some dancing or hair mussing or whatever? I go to a baseball game, I accept the fact that I could take a foul ball or a flying bat to the face or possibly even a 6'-4", 240lb first baseman diving into the stands...I don't accept that some asshole in a stinky costume is going to assault and/or embarrass me...leave me the fark alone!

Suit?

So, he picks up a woman, tosses her into a pool and in doing so injurs her so badly she's got hospital bills? Sounds pretty clear-cut to me.

Next time, aim for the deep end.

His reaction to the Holy Roller alone puts The Chicken in the conversation.

"No pun intended" - why is it this is only used when someone intentionally made a pun or when there is no pun at all?

"In hot water... coming to the surface" isn't a play on words and it isn't funny and it isn't a freaking pun anyway since coming to the surface has to do with being in water.

I support this lawsuit on the sole condition that the Phanatic has to defend himself in court while in character the entire time.

Mascot CSB:

First of all, there are usually several different people that perform inside the costume...

During my senior year of college (Michigan State) I lived off campus in a house. At the end of the Spring semester, I was studying for finals and I heard a knock at my door. To my surprise, I opened the door to find Sparty, the mascot (meaning the guy in a costume)

www.spartan-football.com

I was excited! Everyone loves Sparty. He did a little dance, and made the motion for "drink". I said, "you want a drink?" He nodded. "You want to do a shot?" He nodded.

We did a shot of tequila (he lifted up the head part), and then he waved, and went on his way, without ever saying a word. I watched him move on to the next house, and he did the same thing.

The next day, I read in the school paper that one of the "Spartys" was fired for "inappropriate use of school property"

I wonder how many shots he ended up doing that night. If he'd have kept it to 5 or 6 drinks he probably could have returned the costume and nobody would have been the wiser.

It was probably the waking up on the freeway during morning rush hour that did it. You know, and the resulting front-page pics. With the mascot's head nowhere to be found.

I wonder what the impact of having the word "fanatic" in your name has on your liability insurance application.

Philly Cheesesteaks arent assholes. Theyre delicious. But they kind of make you constipated and if you eat a lot of them you become A giant fat ass. Hmm I guess your right. Everything with the name Philly attached is assholes. Put it in stone.

Truly, the Phanatic is History's Greatest Monster.
