Shit-Caked, Urine-Soaked Man Determined To Enjoy Carnival Cruise

Quote:
Following an onboard fire that has left more than 4,000 Carnival cruise ship passengers and crew without electricity, water, and operational bathroom facilities, feces-covered, urine-stained traveler Jason Spaulding told reporters Wednesday that he is determined to enjoy the remainder of his high seas vacation. “Look, I’ve been looking forward to this cruise for months, and I’m not about to let a little utilities hiccup ruin my good time,” said a waste-drenched Spaulding, who in the past three days has been forced to urinate and defecate off the side of an immobile Carnival cruise liner whose backed-up restrooms sources confirmed are leaking raw sewage throughout the vessel’s living quarters and main deck.

“The fact is, the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and I’m out here in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico on a boat. Uncontrollable torrents of human excrement or no, I’m going to make the best of it.” At press time, the optimistic Carnival passenger had decided to “cool off” by taking a dip in the cruise ship’s lukewarm, feces-clouded pool.

A lawsuit has already been filed.

It claims, suffered physical and emotional harm during the cruise, including anxiety, nervousness and the loss of the enjoyment of life.

You might think it can't get worse when you are faeces-covered and urine-stained staying on a ship, until they force you to spend your well earned vacation in the USA. To add insult to suffering, the tourists had to get off board in Alabama! I really feel bad for these poor people. I hope they get at least some emergency rations from their ship instead of the dog food which the locals eat.
