Travel Log: Report / "March 4 Incident"
March 4, 2008: His Excellency Ambassador of Soviet Unterzoegersdorf, Nikita Chrusov, entered the Marriott Hotel in San Diego to attend a corporate afterparty sponsored by Disney.com.
After four weeks of sea travel on a cargo ship and two weeks of journey in a Greyhound bus, the Ambassador was eagerly awaiting a meeting. He wanted to confront Disney executives with a couple of questions, especially talking to them about their “sugar-coated bullets” (e.g. “Mickey Mouse”), that threaten the very existence of his country by brutal cultural force.
The Ambassador was expelled by employees of Disney.com. He calls this act “an unbelievable act of political shortsightness” and complains about “a poisoned pudding”.
