Couple sparks UPROAR on Twitter after wearing raunchy 'I gave her the D' T-shirts to Disney theme park
An unidentified couple has become the subject of furious debate after wearing T-shirts with a sexual message to Disney theme park.
Both T-shirts make use of the letter 'D' written in Disney's signature calligraphy font — but play on a double entendre where 'D' can stand for both Disney and a piece of male anatomy.
'I gave her the D,' reads the man's shirt, with a Cinderella's castle icon after the D.
'I wanted the D,' reads the woman's shirt, with the same Cinderella's castle icon.

With a peak of 456 feet, Kingda Ka is the world’s tallest roller coaster. That’s a ridiculous 45 stories up in the air, to which you’ll be taken to at a 90-degree angle before you come flying down in a 270-degree spiral. As per Six Flags, it’s also North America’s fastest roller coaster, hitting its top speed of 128 mph in just 3.5 seconds. With an acceleration speed faster than most cars on the market, Kingda Ka is definitely not for the faint of heart.
While you may not have heard of Kingda Ka, it has been around for a while. It first started operating on May 21, 2005, according to Worldwide Hydraulic Professionals (WHYPS). Additionally, it was designed by the Intamin company, which also designed the Top Thrill Dragster. Located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, the Dragster formerly held the continent’s fastest coaster title. It can hit 120 mph in 4 seconds, but it is closed for the remainder of the season.

The first steps in development around Conneaut Lake Park approved Tuesday evening with Summit Township supervisors in Crawford County accepting an application for subdivision at the park's Camperland.
