    It was indeed intended as a joke about today's litigation-happy population and lawyers. But it's not at all far-fetched to think there was a lawyer somewhere in the park running as fast as s/he could to get to the dock as the Mark Twain reverse-parked after the horrible tragedy of the tree falling.

    I also want to make clear that I'm not making light of a case where a tree falls and actually injures someone.

    It would serve as a genuine basis for a case so if Disney were to file a demurrer they would probably not prevail.

    There are still a couple of elements that need to be present to win at trial.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Actually, it is far fetched. There are rules against this and an attorney can be disciplined if caught.

    Only if it falls and then turns into an aligator like in Snow White. That scene freaked me out as a kid.

    You say that as if the trees were built for the park. its normal for this to happen, i would say they should inspect the trees more

    As great a job as they do in landscaping and planting, wouldnt it be logical to think they have arborists (?) inspecting them on a regular basis?
