Man Takes LSD At Disneyland - Eventually Turns Up A Mile Away Completely Naked
Disneyland Paris is a place full of fanciful characters, dazzling colours and fairy tale landscapes.
But for one bloke, this clearly wasn't enough, as he decided to take LSD at the children's theme park (don't even bother trying to tell me it's for grown ups too - if you're going there without kids, you really need to take a long look in the mirror).
Anyway, the hallucinogenic drug didn't enhance the 32-year-old Swiss man's trip - quite the opposite in fact. The guy ended up falling into a body of water near the Adventureland area before disappearing on Friday evening, sparking a 130-person search comprised of thirty firefighters, 10 divers, 80 Disneyland employees, sniffer dogs and a military helicopter.
However, it wasn't any of this party who found the guy during the early hours of Saturday morning - it was a man driving home around 1.2 miles from the site.
Speaking to Le Parisien, the man - named only as Benoit - said: "I was driving home on Saturday around 1am when I came face to face with a naked man. He was walking in the middle of the road. He did not have a centimetre of cloth on him and he walked barefoot.
"I stopped, got out of the car and went to meet him. I wanted to know what a naked man was doing 300m from my home.

"He had scratches on his legs and arms. He did not remember anything."
Benoit said the man told him he had taken LSD and needed to contact his girlfriend - who he was with at the theme park - as she would be worried, though he couldn't remember her mobile number.
Benoit subsequently retrieved the man some clothes from his house before dropping him off back at Disneyland.
The man and his girlfriend were then arrested for drug use and both received a 'rappel a la loi' - which basically means a relatively lenient telling off - before being released on Saturday afternoon.
So beyond causing a few scratches, a bit of humiliation and wasting a vast amount of police resources, it seems little damage was caused by the man's wayward trip to Disneyland.
Furthermore, a Disneyland source told Le Parisien 'visitors did not even notice that there was a problem'.
So there you go - while the tale itself isn't very Disney-like, the happy ending certainly is.
