Anyone remember when people thought a DMB tour bus dumped human waste on people?

  2. It's mostly the driver that got boned though. DMB apparently didn't even do anything, but as to hold up their rep/do some good, they're paying for it anyhow.

    What the heck was the driver thinking? Such a mean and stupid thing to do when it's so much easier to simply follow the rules.

    A week before (the 'incident' took place) I was in Chicago and had been on one of those boat tours...with my kids 8 & 10. If we had been unfortunate enough to have been on that boat, I could not in any way find any "bright side" or anything "funny" about what happened.

    It all changes when your kids are involved.

    No it doesn't. I mean when you get hit with a load of sewage, you'd be gutted at the time, but when you're cleaned up you can say to people:

    "Yeah. I got hit by Dave Matthews flying fecal matter."

    That's funny. It makes a great story too. Plus if you live in America, you could sue for $1,000,000,000 in emotional damages. So everything is fine.

    I'd just like to say for $200,000, you can throw a bucket of waste on me.
