The titanic slide !!!


H All I knew when we where talking about tack things and the slide came up I had seen a report from the UK about this, Today while loking for something totaly different I found this article:

Relative Blasts Titanic Slide As Poor Taste(16 Aug 03, Edinburgh News) "A descendent of a Titanic victim has attacked a Festival fun fair, claiming it is making light of the disaster. Mark Duke, 39, says a children's slide based on the sinking stern of the doomed ship is in bad taste. The inflatable ride in the Meadows has proved a big hit with families who have visited the fun fair since it opened up on its temporary site last weekend. But Mr Duke, who lives in Edinburgh and works for the city council's BlindCraft department - which provides employment for people who are blind or visually impaired - claimed the operators were capitalising on the 1912 tragedy. Mr Duke, who says he had a distant relative who drowned on the Titanic, said: "We saw this bouncy castle which was shaped like the Titanic and sloping down into the grass for children to slide down, just like the people on the boat who couldn't get spaces in the lifeboats."

Hope you enjoy it and comments are welcome. Out of interest can anyone say who Mr Dukes relative was??

HI Wills

I was just thinking of TTF on the slide with her two feet in bandages, and walking aid, or could it be that TTf did ot realy fall on cobbled streets but in fact did the onjury on a slide:-).

I honestly think the manufactures of this slide should of thaught about it before they made it. It is in poor taste and does get my award for the tackiest thing

Well, the original slide came from Japan, where they have a rather - unusual - take on things like this. I'm not sure how "funny" it was originally meant to be - that may be an American take on things.
