"Tourist Arrested In Disney Bomb Threat German Man Claimed He Was Joking, Deputies Say"
ORLANDO, Fla. -
SNIPPET: "According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, Naumann was going through a security checkpoint at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom at about 10:22 a.m. and told a worker that he had two bombs in his backpack.
The Disney cast member questioned Naumann, of Leipzig, Germany, and he again stated that there were two bombs in his backpack, deputies said."

Nah, he was just calling out to his friend, Jack....”Hi, Jack!”
Maybe he was trying to joke about being a cheerleader, and meant to say, “I’ve two pompom’s in my backpack.”
what a moron!
a bomb isn’t something you joke about especially nowadays.
Throw the book at him!
PHOTO LINK from post no. 1:
German tourist = 6 months in jail.
Beautiful people with stunning red outfits, dyed blonde hair and Democrat Party connections = 6 figure book deal.
It’s too bad nobody took the Fort Hood terrorist as seriously when he was making threatening noises. 14 people would still be alive.
Now he knows what a bomb is: a joke that doesn’t go over well.
Maybe he was just a misunderstood Christmas Caroler.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
Wie treu sind deine Blätter!
Taser him in the nuts.
Tell him you were joking. “Wanna ‘nother?”
complete asshole......WDW is very conscience of this type of thing, and this jerk got just what he deserved.....there are no jokes about Bombs since 911-—NONE instead of the Magic Kingdom he got a jail cell to re-think his comments.
“So, Jochen, how was your visit to Disneyland?”
A “practical joker” deserves applause for his wit
according to its quality.
Bastinado is about right.
For exceptional wit one might grant keelhauling.
But staking him out on an anthill should be reserved
for the very wittiest.
Back in 2002 I went to Disneyworld and I had a Leatherman pocket tool in a sheath on my belt, and security went bonkers, they escorted me to a secure area and had me take it off like it was something radioactive, I picked it up at the end of the day.
For the next week or so I went back to the parks I kept it concealed. Most of its for show but when they actually suspect you of something they will swoop down like avenging angels on a holy mission, don’t mess with the Mouse and its billion dollar tourism machine.
BTW that was also the last time I went to a Disney park, too me its too tempting of a terrorist target.
Better yet, put him in a straight-jacket and run him through “Its a Small World” for 48 hours straight, followed by a week in the “Enchanted Tiki Room.”
GERMAN MAN CLAIMED HE WAS JOKING.
——sort of like Hitler in 1945
My gawd man. . .have you no mercy!
"There ver zwei peanuts valking along der strasse...und von vas assaulted...peanut...HO HO HO HO!"
“Cato, there is a beum in this pickage...”
"Hey, if they don't know me, how the hell do they know that I'm going anywhere?"
Well, I guess that’s one way to avoid getting dragged around Disney World with the wife and kids all day.
But there’s got to be a better way.
That would do it for me!
Guess he couldn’t resist. To go there you have to pass at first immigration control - you are asked then if you were a Nazi and/or a terrorist and if you are planning to immigrate illegally.
This sends the first message to the tourist - “we dare you to try and be funny on us”.
Next encounter in the pub - even if you look like 72 - all white hair and a walking stick - you are politely asked to show your ID if you want to enter - for AGE VERIFICATION.
That also sends a message - we know you are of legal age but we can’t be allowed to think on our own in this country... Double Dare !
I guess Disneys guards just tripped the last fuse. Allthough it WAS understandable that they felt threatened to be bombed by a normal family father (wouldn’t they Milley ?).
After they asked him in a serious tone to repeat what he’d said, he should have gotten a clue that they weren’t going to handle it as a joke. Most likely if he’d said at that point “I’m sorry, I was joking but I guess it’s not very funny; feel free to search my bag, there’s nothing unusual in there,” they’d have let it drop. Honestly, in a huge crowd situation, in a location which is clearly a likely target for Islamic terrorists, somebody saying anything about a “bomb” is apt to panic some nervous person into screaming “Oh my God! There’s a BOMB!”, and starting a dangerous stampede. I don’t blame Disney and the police for taking it seriously. A panicking crowd can be just as deadly as a real bomb. Try yelling “Fire!” in a crowded theater, and you’ll get hauled away by police just as fast, for the same reason.
We were not in the situation - apart from immigration officers and pub-law ther’s certainly stupid people trying to be funny on the list of things that are not funny.
(It’s actually a Bob Hope citation: Thinking of yourself as funny isn’t funny)
