I thought the lady was correct when I heard the clip on the six o'clock news. However, listening to it on the Martin's website I'd say it sound more like "Can you... Dig it" to me. Another 'Tempest in a teapot'.

Get off it, Another Lawsuit Fisher! It obviously says Can You Dig It... Perhaps she should pour hot coffee on herself!(OOPS thats already been tried!) or..a hearing aid!

Maybe gravity is pulling on her many piercings and affecting her hearing? It's loud and clear on my speakers on a West Side dial-up. Thanks for the post EHC-45

Why would anyone want to go to this place anyway? A dumpy 'amusement' park on Grand Island? I can think of many things better to do with your time....

Oh, please we watched the clip yesterday and in no way is it saying anything offensive or racial. First get your ears checked, then remove all metal and last take an English Class. Then you wonder how lawsuits begin..give me a break.

Nice that your watching out for your kid, but I think you have too much time to imagine and I dont like looking at your kid or your ugly face. THATS the real crime.

At first I couldn't see any of this story, but then I realized I had the "STUPID" filter ON in my computer settings.

I also checked out the video. It clearly says "can you DIG IT"
I thought the video was pretty cool, but if you REALLY want to watch a roller coaster ride check out:


It's the original COMET from Crystal Beach.
The Silver Comet at Fantasy Island is nothing but a joke. Check out the BEST roller coaster ever!

any other Comet lovers out there? I got goosebumps when I first played this video and tears in my eyes. I still remember that sharp turn (it occurs at 1:20 on the video) and you thought for sure you were going to go into the lake!
Fantasy Island blew it. The Comet was dismantled and saved from the scrap heap by Great Escape, Lake George where she has been restored, with the original seats.- just one bar across you: no seatbelts, no lockdowns, just one bar! That added to the excitement!
A piece of WNY and Southern Ontario gone out of town. Thanks a lot Fantasy Island.

When channel 4 was called by this ding bat and sent Mylo to ivestigate, wouldn't common sense say that there was no story here? "Nothing to see here, move along folks". No wonder Channel 2 blows em away

You have got to be kidding me! For channel 4 to even make this a news story is a joke. Any sane person can clearly hear "dig it" in the video, to hear anything else brings into question the listeners motives. I think this lady needs her annual hearing test. News 4 also needs to apologize to Fantasy Island for their obvious bad judgement in even airing a story so obviously false.

As far as I remember, The owners of Great escape also owned fantasy island. The comet was stored at FI until it was taken to lake george. You're right, stupid move on the previous owners. We could still be reliving our childhood if it weren't for this blunder
