Man detained after joking about bomb at the Magic Kingdom

File this one under jokes not to make while getting your bag inspected at a Disney themepark. Local Fox 35 news is reporting (no story to link to online, alas) that a man was detained by Orange County sheriffs after telling Disney security at the Magic Kingdom main gate bag check that he had a bomb in his bag. He quickly stated that he was joking, but as you can imagine, security wasn’t too happy and took the threat seriously.

As a guest who was in the Magic Kingdom this morning, let me say thank you to security for taking their jobs seriously. Sure, the whole bag inspection thing is just security theater and there are dozens of ways to get something past the gates if you really wanted to. But when someone does make a threat, as a guest I want to know that safety really is important.

More as news warrants.
