(Above: Don't throw it, Fiorello!)
Happy Fourth of July! Yes, I know I'm a little late. I was busy exploring the sewers of North Carolina in search of new life forms. (Sorry for leaving that last, horribly disgusting post at the top of the page for so long!)
So now that we've learned about water boogers, the next topic must be . . . food! In June, a number of Wisconsin teens were frog-marched out of their school in handcuffs. What was the nature of their offense? Drugs? Violence? No. They were arrested because they had participated in a food fight.
Of course this was no ordinary food fight. Apparently, the prank had been planned long in advance, and the students had smuggled massive quantities of yogurt and other supplies into Portage High School. Then, at the appointed time, the entire school went completely mad."So on the count of three, we stood up, whipped it, (and) everyone started screaming, running," said sophomore Dylan Mitchell.
Within seconds, yogurt and taco salad were flying across the cafeteria. "(I) threw my milk. I picked it up, spilt it all over me, threw it," Mitchell said.
Hmmm. Very mature, Mitchell. But did he (and his friends) deserve a criminal record AND a $172 fine? I wonder.
For those of you who are hankering for a food fight, I strongly recommend this Mentalfloss list of The World's 10 Messiest Food Festivals
