Disaster on a stick

Let's see...NYC on a hot summer day and a giant trailer truck size popsicle...What could go wrong?

Snapple's attempt at popsicle world record turns into gooey fiasco.

Runoff from the melting strawberry kiwi ice pop pours out the back of a truck in Union Square in Manhattan.

NEW YORK - An attempt to erect the world’s largest popsicle in a city square ended with a scene straight out of a disaster film — but much stickier.

The 25-foot-tall, 17½-ton treat of frozen Snapple juice melted faster than expected Tuesday, flooding Union Square in downtown Manhattan with kiwi-strawberry-flavored fluid that sent pedestrians scurrying for higher ground.

Firefighters closed off several streets and used hoses to wash away the sugary goo.

Snapple had been trying to promote a new line of frozen treats by setting a record for the world’s largest popsicle, but called off the stunt before it was pulled fully upright by a construction crane. Authorities said they were worried the thing would collapse in the 80-degree, first-day-of-summer heat.

“What was unsettling was that the fluid just kept coming,” Stuart Claxton of the Guinness Book of World Records told the Daily News. “It was quite a lot of fluid. On a hot day like this, you have to move fast.”

Snapple official Lauren Radcliffe said the company was unlikely to make a second attempt to break the record, set by a 21-foot ice pop in Holland in 1997.

The giant ice pop was supposed to have been able to withstand the heat for some time, and organizers weren’t sure why it didn’t. It had been made in Edison, N.J., and hauled to New York by freezer truck in the morning.

What's the worst thing you've ever said when you were drunk?

I was at a friend's house for a barbeque a couple of weeks ago. I was talking to a friend of his and that guy's girlfriend. The girlfriend had dark hair and skin darker than me. I'm like the whitest person on Earth. I don't know what ethnicity she is and never really gave it a thought.

We were having a good old time talking about what a pain in the butt New York is when they have these big parades like St. Patrick's Day.

Well the Puetro Rican Day Parade was scheduled for the next day. So the girl was complaining about it and in my drunken stupor I said something like "Aren't you going to represent".

I don't know why I said it. I don't even know if this girl was Puerto Rican, Itallian, Dominican or Irish with a tan.... It's like my brain shut off, or maybe I'm a subconcious racist. (Is that even possible?)

What's the worst thing you've ever said drunk?

Cell Phones

Ok, everybody has a cell phone. It's become a necesity. But why do guys wear them on their belt?

I'm no fashion maven, but that looks super dorky. Even worse is those new bluetooth things that clip on to your ear. I see people walking around with them like they never take them off.

If you wear your phone on your belt or clipped to your ear, let me give you some advice. YOU LOOK LIKE A JACKASS!

You have to look like some star trek guy so you don't miss an important call in the supermarket??? Give it a rest dorkwad.

Evil Site

I just put a button from Gematriculator. It's cool you, they have an algorythm that tells you hw good or evil your site is. Mine is not very evil. I was hoping for higher evil content.

I wonder if these phrases will help:

I'm down with the new White Stripes Album Get Behind Me Satan.
Devil Worship is for the evil people.
Deviled Eggs are delicious.
Have you heard about that mass murder?

Munchkin Land Must Be Missing Their Idiot

Is everone as sick of the asshole formerly known as Tom Cruise as I am?

How do we make this refugee from the lolipop league get the hell off of our tv's?

I mean come on the guy's religion was devised by a guy who wrote science fiction, bad science fiction. He dumped the most beautiful actress so he wouldn't have to pay her $10 million. He's dating a girl who could be his daughter and acting like an idiot on Oprah. Not very manly asshole.

I hope war of the worlds bombs and asshole is doing 1-800-collect commercials as Carrot Top's punchline.

This guy deserves a decent tip

TAMPA, Fla. - A robbery attempt by a masked man and a gunshot wound to the leg didn't stop a pizza delivery man from making his rounds, pies in hand.

Thomas Stefanelli, 37, said dedication to his job at Hungry Howie's Pizza kept him on the job after a struggle with a robber Saturday night left him bleeding from a bullet wound in his left thigh.

Stefanelli arrived at a home only to realize it was vacant, police said. The masked man approached Stefanelli, pointed a gun and demanded money. Stefanelli said he fought with the man, and two shots were fired. One hit Stefanelli, but he did not immediately notice.

The shooter eventually fled with a second man.

"They figured they were going to make an easy mark by robbing a pizza delivery person," said police spokesman Joe Durkin.

Stefanelli finally noticed his wound. His cell phone wasn't working, so he drove to his next delivery address, dropped off the pie and called his boss to ask him to call the police.

Stefanelli went on to make three more deliveries.

"It bled a little bit, not much," he said.

He was treated and released from a hospital.

No arrests have been made, but police have identified several suspects, Durkin said.

When building Sex Huts don't forget about parking

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German city is rushing to install a series of drive-in wooden "sex garages" in time for next year's Soccer World Cup and an expected boom in the local sex trade, a city official said Wednesday.

Dortmund, one of 12 cities to host World Cup matches, is anxious to keep prostitutes and their clients off the streets by providing them with discreet places to do business.

Experts estimate as many as 40,000 prostitutes may travel to Germany to offer their services to fans during the tournament.

"The World Cup has put us under added time pressure, as we don't want a situation where prostitutes and their clients disturb residential areas," the official said.

Prostitution is legal in Germany in designated areas.

"In Dortmund we have an official red light district on the outskirts, but there is a problem. There is not enough space for everyone to park."

Dortmund plans to arrange the Dutch-designed huts, which have been introduced in the city of Cologne, another World Cup venue, in an area with condom machines and snack bar.

"Men have to get used to them of course, but a high percentage accept them because they can protect their anonymity," the official said.

"That said there will always be those who want to go behind a bush, under a bridge or into the woods."

Woman's house Knee High in Goat Shit

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German woman living with 43 goats was evicted from her rented house after the animals left "knee-high" piles of droppings around the garden and laid waste to the building's interior, authorities said on Tuesday.

A court in the southwestern town of Saarburg said the woman had been forced out because she was behind on her rent and had allowed the condition of the house to deteriorate to such an extent that it may have to be torn down.

"The goats' droppings were basically piled up knee-high around the garden, and inside the house everything was chewed up. And it stank," said court spokesman Manfred Grueter.

"It was total chaos," he added. "It's pretty doubtful as to whether the place can still be lived in."

The woman, a freelance artist in her early forties, had resisted eviction on the grounds her life with the goats had been used to create a "social sculpture" inspired by the German sculptor Joseph Beuys.
