So, she was told there was possible danger, she signed a release absolving the resort and travel agencey of any responsibility if something went wrong, something went wrong and she's suing anyway? I don't see the legal leg she is trying to stand on.

Apparently she was there to experience the dolphinsex.org thingy, but when the dolphin came up to mount her, the dolphin saw her face and said "the only way i'll hit that is with my dorsal fin!"

and now you know....the rest of the story!

the headline implies that flipper made an error. i beg to differ
2002-12-15 02:04:10 PM  
Perhaps she should try suing the dolphin.
2002-12-15 03:18:04 PM  
what the heck is "A television news personality?" Obviously Flipper didn't know he was dealing with a personality...he thought it was just a stupid woman with no brains in her head...
2002-12-15 03:18:48 PM  
Good Dolphin.

Dolphin gets tasty treat of fresh fish.

Rendantly restate things over and over repetatively?
2002-12-15 03:23:20 PM  
She was also apparently in
MeatBalls Part II. What the?
2002-12-15 03:23:48 PM  
She has nothing. Hank Hill rules. Had to see it.
2002-12-15 03:25:30 PM  
no one should be responsible for the dolphin, she could sue the dolphin instead. see if the dolphin gives a shiat about it.
2002-12-15 03:26:12 PM  
If people can sue tobacco companies for their spouses dying of cancer, and others can sue McDonalds for selling hot coffee, this dumbass can sue the dolphin company.

Sad, it's Farking sad.

2002-12-15 03:26:59 PM  
Asshat. I suspect the dolphin sensed her evil presence. Smack. Bwahahaha

2002-12-15 03:27:06 PM  
So why didn't she just exercise her 2nd amendment right to shoot the dolphin in the head with an assault rifle?

Stupid Dolphin! POW!
2002-12-15 03:27:11 PM  
And this happened three years ago? She must be bored, needs a couple frivolous lawsuits to occupy her time.

Too bad it wasn't Shamu.
2002-12-15 03:27:41 PM  
This is just an attempt for her to get some exposure. She is nothing more than a local news roadwhore who got some national exposure and then faded away. Her best work was in the early 80's when she was probably 30.
2002-12-15 03:27:53 PM  
It was a fluke. The dolphin didn't do it on porpoise.

Dolphins are not toys for spoilt biatches to play with and 'play tricks'. I wish it had tried to shag her, like a lot of randy dolphins try to do to human women.

The 'gentle' dolphin myth is almost as egregious as the 'cuddly Koala' myth; they are the vilest, stinkingest, piss-coated bags of claw and tooth that you will ever encounter.
2002-12-15 03:28:31 PM  
people are stupid
2002-12-15 03:29:23 PM  
I think we should just put all of the news personalities in some water inhabited by dolphins. We will then see who is smart enough to be hesitant regarding a trick which involves a 500 pound creature flying over their heads.

Flipper is actually a 12 year old Thalidomide baby.
2002-12-15 03:31:17 PM  
Dammit, I wanted to make the clever dolphinsex.org reference!

[shaking fist] DAMN YOU, Ranold!
2002-12-15 03:31:52 PM  
"If you are going to advise people that it is safe to do this type of excursion, you should certainly warn them that things go wrong,"

That is one of the most intelligent things I have ever read.
2002-12-15 03:32:10 PM  
I agree, Calisa, but instead of dolphins I was thinking more along the lines of great white sharks...
2002-12-15 03:32:14 PM  
She should also sue the person that built the platform she was standing on, and also the dolphin food supplier. Don't forget the boat manufacturer, as it didn't warn that it could be mis-used to transport people to potentially dangerous dolphin-based incidents.
2002-12-15 03:32:25 PM  
I tried to jump over 10 cars on my motorcycle and crashed. I am suing Honda.
2002-12-15 03:33:22 PM  
bahahaha She got hit in the head by a dolphin and now has hearing loss. That will be entertaining to tell the grand kids.
2002-12-15 03:33:52 PM  
She should sue her farkin hair-stylist.
2002-12-15 03:36:28 PM  
"Now she is suing the Dolphin Encounters resort in Nassau, its Florida affiliate and the Philadelphia travel agency that arranged the trip, claiming no one warned her of the potential danger."

Yep, 'cause that travel agent should be much smarter than a "television news personality."
2002-12-15 03:38:23 PM  
the dolfin's obviously the smarter of the two. What a shame this woman has already bred.
2002-12-15 03:41:45 PM  
hahahaha really enjoying those comments.

when will people learn playing with wild mammals has risks?
shes going to ruin it for those of us who would gladly accept the risk for the experience.
2002-12-15 03:41:50 PM  
Gooood dolphin...Here,have a herring.
2002-12-15 03:43:19 PM  
my favorite bit is the picture of the dolphin on the right.

the famously gentle mammals (like the one pictured, right)

Goooood tv news talking head chick...Here, have a herring aid.
2002-12-15 03:47:23 PM  
Earns the Dumbass tag if you ask me. What moron goes in pools of water with huge fish that are known to thwart off sharks?!? Too bad this isn't on video tape:

"When Flipper attacks go bad! Next on FOX!"
2002-12-15 03:49:45 PM  
That's "So long, and thanks for all the fish..."

2002-12-15 03:49:47 PM  
mabus you asshat they arent fish

He is.
2002-12-15 03:55:45 PM  
It lives in the water, it swims in the water. It's a damn fish. You crazy marine biologists...you and your complex definitions. I bet that's what the problem is here. She thought she was going to be swimming with the fishes, but ended up swimming with something else! Makes perfect sense.

Maybe it was a male dolphin and he just wanted to skull fark her.

Or possibly that Ms Glass wasn't so "fresh" that day and the dolphin mistook her for fish.

Getting smacked around by a dolphin is bad news, and it does suck. But I'm a big fan of the Karma Police, and I think this was the equivalent of them kicking down her home's door. Anyone associated with tabloid television has something like this coming to them. It's cosmic.
2002-12-15 04:33:06 PM  
That's a MAN, Baby, yeah!!!
