    POTC - Captain Barbossa vandalized

    We went to DLR and POTC today. I was excited to see the Captain Barbossa mural abomination and... there was a wall colored cloth in front of it. Luckily, the only thing keeping it sticking to the wall were some velcro stickies. So I took a peek underneath it and it was vandalized. It has a whole bunch of scratches on it, which cut all the way through the paint and had white plaster showing.

    Oh and unrelated to that, I saw a rolling - talking trashcan in Tomorrowland today. It's a real life usable trashcan, which rolls around, entertains people and tells jokes. Its fuzzy logic wasn't that great and it seemed like it got stuck near the Tomorrowland restroom area. But a simple trashcan attracted a whole lot of people... and the kids couldn't get enough of throwing away trash and causing it to burp everytime.

    A talking trashcan? The heck you say!

    That's Push, and he's pretty fun. Kids love him.

    I also saw the tarp covering the Barbossa painting, and I was wondering what had happened to it.

    That tarp has been there since at least saturday when we rode it.... it sucks that its all scrached up. And push is very funny! I like talking to him and messing with his operator as much as possible.

    There's always new stuff to see. That was the first time I've seen Push, but I figured he can't be new, because he had quite a lot of black scratch marks on it.

    Not the Barbossa on the ship. The mural on the wall in the queue.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    It's far more likely that the location was near enough the queue to be defaced just as cuts and defacing can be seen in other queues. I hope the person was arrested and fined for complete replacement costs.

    Yeah, maybe MasterGracey got really mad over the Nametag issue and in his anger, he took it out on Barbossa.

    Re: POTC - Captain Barbossa vandalized

    The Barbossa mural has had the velcro stickies around it for a couple of weeks now. I also saw it today with the tarp up. Maybe they should put one of the more cartoonish pirate murals up in that spot & move the Barbossa mural elsewhere...and hopefully get a new likeness of him worked out! LOL!

    Push's "fuzzy logic" is a guy standing or sitting about 20 feet away with his hand in a camera bag concealing a remote control. If you pay attention, you will see the guy with his hand over his mouth while the trash can is talking. I've watched it a few times and he usually wears a ball cap and tries poorly to look like a tourist. Its location depends on how busy the park is as traffic tends to stop while its out.

    Ha!

    Well, he sure was behaving just like my Roomba when it gets stuck somewhere. I've gotta pay more attention...

    Maybe a CM got sick of looking at Barbossa.

    People are giving hints to Disney, just some are more radical then others.
