One Picture Shows Why America is Fat

30 May

An eagle-eyed Reddit user posted this picture earlier this week. It shows Mountain Dew A.M., a new beverage choice consisting of half Mountain Dew and half orange juice. Thankfully, it’s only served until 11 a.m. Coming soon to a Taco Bell by you!

Cause otherwise that would be disgusting.

I wish this was a joke, but a company spokesman confirmed the rollout in Southern California to Fox News. “”Our customers love Mountain Dew and it’s one of our most popular beverages, so we are testing Mtn Dew AM in Fresno and Southern California as the latest innovation to our FirstMeal Menu.  We’re pleased with the initial reaction from our customers, and if it does well, we’ll roll it out to all our restaurants that serve breakfast,” Rob Poetsch, Taco Bell spokesman, said in an email.

More than 32 percent of Americans could be obese by 2030, with 11 percent severely obese (more than 100 pounds over a healthy weight).

Thankfully, we still have the freedom to drink what we want.

Columbia Packing Company Secretly Pumps Blood Into Texas River

25 Jan

It started out innocently enough. A small plane pilot was fooling around with a $75 camera he recently bought. When he got home, he checked out his pictures and noticed something really odd. A small Texas river that seemed to be dark red.

The pilot notified the county who launched an investigation. The Department of Health and Human Services took their own pictures and confirmed that Cedar Creek (which filters into the Trinity River) was indeed red.

They linked the pollution to The Columbia Packing Company in Oak Cliff, Texas and obtained a search warrant. After checking the plant thorougly, investigators discovered a secondary pipe that tested positive for pig’s blood. That’s right, the slaughterhouse has been secretly disposing of pig’s blood into a creek that filtered into a community river.

A city councilman was asked to leave when he attempted to visit the plant and environmental groups have decried the incident. As of right now, the plant remains open.

Gross, just gross. You can see the red river in the bottom left corner of the above picture.

Tucker Barnes Gives Grossest Hurricane Irene Weather Report

28 Aug

Poor Tucker Barnes. The WTTG reporter was on Hurricane Irene watch yesterday evening and was forced to give a live report as he was being covered with a mysterious, gross-looking foam.

Apparently this foam stuff is “highly unusual,” consists of some “organic matter” and “doesn’t taste great.” Yuck! Hope he didn’t consume too much of it.

What is this stuff? Well, apparently it likely comes from raw sewage that seeped into the water during the hurricane. It consists of toxic mix of pollution and cyanobacteria.

Barnes also added that the foam “doesn’t smell great.” He did several reports surrounded by the foam. Hopefully he gets a bonus for this gross reporting.
