Nervous Lake Havasu Officials Emphasize They're Piranha-Free

piranha_havasu_120.jpgPiranha 3D may have pumped $18 million into the economy around Lake Havasu, Arizona, but it also appears to have made very stupid tourists very scared. "One woman was bringing up to me that the movie was coming out, and she asked - as serious as serious can be - 'Oh, but are there still piranha in the lake?'" one local resort owner told the LAT. "At first, I kind of took it as a joke. But then I let her know that that's the computer-generated part of the movie. And she was very relieved, saying, 'Oh, I'm so glad to hear that.'" I've been sitting here for five minutes trying to think of a response that obviously doesn't exist, so... moving on, I think. [LAT]

    Obviously, this chick was one of those people that believed they used a real Wookie in the first Star Wars film.

  • Right? You can only imagine her heartbreak when told she couldn't take a banshee ride while visiting Pandora.

  • Martini Shark says:

    I find it extremely suspicious that officials have yet to do anything to dispell fears that they have not addressed the Jerry O'Connell infestation in the area.

  • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

    "Oh, but are there still tits in the lake? ... Oh, I'm so glad to hear that."

  • metroville says:

    "As for the most dangerous creatures actually residing in the murky depths of Lake Havasu?"
    "Brown people," said white people stupid enough to give credence to the potential scientific accuracy of PIRANHA F***ING 3D.

    Personally, I heard the lake was still full of flying dicks.
