Spilled Skittles On A Rural Wisconsin Highway Open The Door To A Bigger Mystery

(PCM) One of the more odd happenings as of late is the report of a massive spillage of red Skittles candy on a rural Wisconsin Highway. Literally, thousands of only red colored Skittles littered the roadway! If that was not absurd enough, it was the Wisconsin sheriff’s comments about the incident on Facebook that led people to further scratch their heads in confusion.

It seems that the Skittles, which were being transported in a large cardboard box on the back of a flat-bed truck, were on their way to be delivered as food for cattle in the region. It was raining in the area that day and the cardboard box became wet causing it to give way and spill the load of Skittles all over the highway. It is said that the Skittles were set to become cattle food because they did not make the cut for human consumption and packaging for the company. In other words, they were a bunch of defective Skittles.

Mars, the parent company of the Skittles brand, claims that they had no idea that the defective Skittles were going to be fed to cattle and claim they are currently investigating the incident. They claim that the load of red Skittles was deemed defective due to a manufacturing glitch that prevented them from being stamped with the company’s signature white “s” and that is the reason they were shipped off.

We find it very hard to believe that the Mars company had no clue that these defective candies were being sold off for cattle food, as it is fairly common process due to government regulations regarding a farms corn crops. The regulations state that 40% of a farms corn crop must be put aside for the use of fuel and the rest of the crop can be split evenly between consumption for humans and animals. However, if a farm were to have a bad crop season for corn they have been forced to turn to alternative measures to feed their livestock, which includes the cattle, by giving them not only defective Skittles as in this particular case, but also gummy bears as well.

These foods are a cheaper alternative to corn and provide what many farmers call “cheap carbs” to bulk up their animals. It is not an uncommon practice for food manufacturers to sell off many of their defectives to companies that use them to create animal feed. The US Animal Defense Fund provides a list of which foods can be collected and made into animal scraps. It includes cookies, Fruit Loops, cereal, orange peels, dried fruit, taco shells, refried beans, cottonseed hulls, rice products, potato products, and peanut pellets to name a few with of course gummy bears and Skittles making that list as well!

Cattle farmers are often times willing to feed virtually anything they can get their hands on to their cattle and livestock as a way to replace the starch and sugar content that the animals typically receive through consuming corn-based feed.  It is certainly a scary thought for consumers, as it is growing more and more difficult to figure out exactly what we are eating ourselves after discovering some of these details regarding the both the farming and food industries.

Film Director Casey Tebo Steals Clam Chowder Ingredients To Prove An Important Point

(PCM) When film director Casey Tebo discovered that one of his films had been illegally downloaded from a torrent site and then passed around among the employees of a certain grocery store he was incredibly angered and decided to take revenge into his own hands.

Tebo entered the store and began stealing the ingredients that would be used to make clam chowder. Tebo ended up getting caught, however not without strongly making his point to the store about the effect that illegal downloading has on the artist and the industry. Tebo feels very strongly that online piracy is the same as theft and he felt that he had to make a stand and do his part in an attempt to battle this ongoing issue.

Tebo is best known for his indie horror film “Happy Birthday” and for directing live performances from bands such as Aerosmith, Judas Priest and Motley Crue. He also won an Emmy award for his work on ESPN E:60’s Dream On: The Stories of Boston’s Strongest.

After a recent conversation with a friend where it was revealed that the friend had seen Tebo’s recent film “Happy Birthday”, Tebo asked where his buddy had seen the film. The friend admitted that some guy had brought it into work. Tebo innocently asked if it was via DVD, however eventually his friend admitted that the guy had illegally downloaded the film from a torrent site and shared it with various co-workers at the store.

Tebo’s “Happy Birthday” film had a tiny budget with only three investor putting in about $500k, so after speaking with some other friends Tebo decided to take his revenge on the store that felt it was okay to steal his creative property. He figured just go to the grocery store and begin stealing the ingredients to make a clam chowder. If he got caught he would simply tell the police “He steals my sh*t, why can’t I steal his sh*t”?

Tebo created a video to go along with the revenge plan aptly titled “PSA (Pirates Suck A**)” which has been posted on YouTube and is quickly going viral. In the video Tebo can be seen taking about $30 worth of groceries, however he is caught by a store employee in the parking lot. The employee threatens to call the cops however Tebo protests saying that if it is okay for the employees of the grocery store to steal from his industry, why can’t he steal from theirs?

Tebo did eventually return the stolen ingredients, however he definitely made sure to get his point across about the ongoing issue of internet piracy. Check out the video here!

Weirdo Squirts Women With His Semen At Walmart

(PCM) West Virginia native Timothy Blake has started off the year in a rather disgusting fashion, as he was recently arrested for following women around an Ohio Walmart and using a syringe to squirt them with his semen. Ugh! Nastiness!

Blake was arrested and charged by Ohio authorities back on December 30 with “pandering obscenity, sexual imposition and two counts of menace by stalking.” It also appears that Blake has a thing for stalking women at Walmart  as he was also caught during a incident in November of 2016 at the same location in Marietta, OH. He was following another woman who described him as being “creepy”. In that case, as well as this one, the woman felt something wet and sticky hit her lower back and foot. She went into the Walmart restroom to wash up and Blake standing outside of the restroom waiting for her to exit. The entire incident was captured via video surveillance cameras in the store.

Both times Blake was able to flee after the incident in his white pick-up truck, however after the second incident police recognized the pick-up truck and Blake was brought in for questioning. He at first told the police that the substance in the syringe was egg yolk, however it was later tested by police and Blake eventually admitted it was his semen. Blake went on to reveal to the police that he’d used syringes filled with spit, egg, and semen to spray women “on a dozen occasions.”

He would masturbate either in his pick-up truck or in the Walmart bathroom, fill the syringe with his semen and then squirt the contents at unsuspecting women. Just disgusting! Police feel that this may be Blake’s way of feeling like he has somehow had sexual relations with these women, but without a doubt it is the sign of a deeply disturbed individual.

Man Claims Ageism After Being Banned From Starbucks For Hitting On A 16-year Old Employee

(PCM) A 37-year old man by the name of Lucas Werner has been banned from the Starbucks location in Spokane, Washington after being accused of hitting on 16-year old female employee and generally just being a creep.  Werner has posted a defense on social media claims that he is the victim of ageism or otherwise discriminated against due to his age.

Werner’s defense claims that he was unfairly banned from the establishment after he innocently requested that the 16-year old female barista accompany him for dinner sometime. He claims that the note he wrote and passed to the young woman was not at all sexual in nature and was completely and utterly harmless.

Starbucks and the barista felt differently and Werner’s actions were reported to the local authorities. Angered by the situation Werner posted the following message on his Facebook page and urged his supporters to call the Starbucks location and complain on his behalf.

For those who would like to call them to complain about age difference discrimination on my behalf. In brief, a barista said I was funny and that she liked me, so I politely thanked her, sat down to drink my hot chocolate, wrote her a nice note, so as not to interrupt her work schedule asking her out to dinner if she was interested and walked out, happily thanking the friendly staff and wishing them a Merry Christmas.
When I returned yesterday, a Spokane Police Officer said the note was creepy, which it wasn’t, and asked me to not return because I was being banned. We already know this is because the barista was young and legal aged and I’m 37.
I did not ask her to have sex with me. I asked if she would like to have dinner sometime. Perfectly normal adult behavior. I figure, if she was 16 and flirtatious it would still be legal to ask her to dinner. You can’t even work at Starbucks unless you’re 16, which is the legal age to date people. This is a clear case of age discrimination. Feel free to call them to complain on my behalf.

It seems, however that Werner’s plan backfired and rather than people rallying to support him they instead wrote tons of positive reviews for the Starbucks location. They praised the management of the store for taking swift action and protecting their young female employee.  Upon further investigation it has been revealed that Werner actually lives in a homeless shelter and this is not the first time he has been accused of behaving inappropriately with a female minor.

Werner runs a website called Conversation Our Age which basically just consists of posting complaining about why younger women won’t date him and all the reasons that he feels they should. It’s really very pathetic.  One post in particular reads:

I haven’t had a girlfriend in 5 years. I’ve never dated a younger woman in my life. I’ve been trying to date younger women for 5 years. I’m an atheist. I’ve given away over $3000 worth of food on the street in 5 years. I moved 400 miles from Olympia to Spokane because I couldn’t find anyone on 4 dating sites. I need to date a Millennial. I’m 37 years old. Generation X marks the spot. I’ve dated women my age to 18 years older. All my exes, mom and step-mom prefer older men to two 30 year marriages between my 4 parents. I’ve lost 170 lbs. I’m looking for a woman under 26 years old in Spokane to go out to dinner with me to Red Robin tonight. Any takers?

Starbucks claims they have no plans to allow Werner to return to their establishment and we certainly praise them for weeding out a definite creeper!

Happy New Year Hollywood! Famous Sign Vandalized

(PCM) Several folks played an epic New Year’s Eve prank in Hollywood, California as some time in the overnight hours the famous Hollywood Sign was vandalized to read “Hollyweed” instead.

It is mind-blowing that someone could even get away with this due to heightened security measure, however authorities do claim that they have video footage of the suspects caught on surveillance cameras.

So far the authorities are treating the incident as a misdemeanor trespassing crime and a currently conducting a further investigation.

The incident most likely took place due to the legislation that recently passed allowing the recreational use of marijuana in the state of California. Despite the law passing, recreational marijuana will not be sold in stores until January of 2018.

Dog Mauls Owners For Trying To Put Him In A Sweater

(PCM) It was not such a great start to the New Year for a family in Tampa, Florida after their pit bull mix named Scarface mauled a husband and wife who were attempting to dress him in a sweater.

We always thought dogs hated being put in those ridiculous things and it appears we are correct.

The dog not only attacked the husband and wife, but also attacked the couples 22-year old son who was attempting to break up the incident.

According to the Tampa police department, 52-year old Brenda Guerrero made an attempt to put a sweater on Scarface the dog when he suddenly began to attack. Her husband 46-year old Ismeal Guerrero tried to pull the dog off his wife, but then he too was attacked.

By this point the couple’s 22-year old son Antoine Harris grabbed a knife and stabbed the dog in the head and neck to stop the attack, but the dog then began attacking Harris as well. Eventually, the three family members were able to escape the home and leave the dog in the backyard.

The authorities say that the dog was still behaving incredibly aggressively when they arrived on the scene and in quite a “Cujo-esque” move even after being tazed by the authorities the dog was still able to escape and rip out the prongs of the tazer.

Scarface was eventually caught using a catch pole by animal control and his current condition is unknown.  The family was taken to a local area hospital to treat their injuries which were considered serious, but not life-threatening. The family had only recently adopted Scarface from a local area shelter and neighbors claim the dog had already escaped and was caught roaming around the neighborhood several times.

Dogs do not like sweaters …. we repeat … dogs do not like sweaters! Well, maybe adorable little purse dogs do, but on a pitbull, you might want to think again!
