Someone Squealed! Two Women Accused Of Running A Pre-School “Fight Club”

Fight-Club

(PCM) And the first rule of “Fight Club” is … well, it appears someone spilled the beans and two NJ daycare works are being accused of running a pre-school “fight club” at a daycare facility with girls and boys aged four through six.

Erica Kenny, 22, and Chanese White, 28 have been accused of instigating fights between the children at Lightbridge Academy in Cranford, NJ and then filming the altercations between the children and posting the fight footage on social media. Once it was brought to the attention of those in charge of Lightbridge Academy both women were immediately terminated.

The videos feature footage of dozens of children fighting, shoving each other to the ground and taking swings on one another. There is still a pending investigation to find out just how long both Kenny and White were making these types of videos.  Both women have been charged with child abuse and Kenny has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Both women could serve jail time if convicted.

While none of the children appear to have suffered any serious injuries, Lightbridge Academy has released a statement in regards to the incident saying “As parents and caregivers, we are shocked and saddened by this isolated incident and we have assisted the prosecutor’s office from the start of its investigation into this matter. While no children were physically harmed during this incident, we have a zero tolerance policy for anyone who acts in conflict with the core value of Lightbridge Academy – the safety and well-being of children.”

Happy Birthday To Chicken Boy! Perfect Way To Kick-Off National Eat Chicken Month!

Chickenboy1

(PCM) Chicken Boy is a gigantic 22-foot tall statue that currently resides along historic Route 66 in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles, California. After many tumultuous years of being taken up and down and resting for two years in a storage facility Chicken Boy finally found his permanent home upon the roof of 5558 North Figueroa an art design firm owned by Amy Inouye.

Chicken Boy’s ceremonial birthday is celebrated on September 1, as that is when he made his initial debut a top a Los Angeles chicken restaurant from 1969 to 1984 when the owner of the restaurant passed away. People from all over the country continue to make the trek to visit the iconic Chicken Boy statue that has since been named a historic California landmark. Chicken Boy even has his very own website/on-line store! He is often referred to as the Statue Of Liberty of Los Angeles.

We say there is no better way to celebrate Chicken Boy’s birthday this month than kicking off September, which also happens to be National Eat Chicken month, with a tasty plate of some delicious fried chicken and a tall glass of sweet tea.

On average a typical U.S. household serves some sort of chicken dish about seven times or more per month which adds up to be able 82 pounds of chicken per person for a whole year.  A few years ago in celebration of National Chicken Month, KFC conducted a survey to find out about America’s chicken consuming habits.

eat-chicken-logo-web

Some fun facts from that survey can be found below:

When asked the age-old question “what came first the chicken or the egg?,”nearly seven out of 10 turned to the biblical belief that the chicken came before the egg. On the other hand, the U.S.D.A. data statisticians have proven that the egg did, in fact, come before the chicken. Any way you look at it, a chicken can’t be born without an egg, and an egg can’t be laid without a chicken … so both answers are correct.(2)

Hands-Off Approach
When it comes to fried chicken, most dig in and forget proper etiquette! More than four out of five surveyed toss aside utensils and eat chicken with their hands.
— Believe it or not, slightly more women (85%) than men (81%) are apt to
forget the fork!
— This is good news for those visiting Gainesville, Ga. — the chicken
capital of the world — where it is illegal to eat chicken with a fork.

Piece by Piece
Hands down, almost seven out of 10 people surveyed prefer white meat to
dark. When it comes to the most favored piece of chicken, the breast prevails
by close to 50 percent over leg, thigh, boneless and wing.

— Breast 48%
— Leg 18%
— Thigh 13%
— Boneless 13%
— Wing 10%

On the Side but Still in the “Game”
When deciding which side dish to bring to the table, 48 percent surveyed
chose mashed potatoes & gravy as their favorite, followed by fries, cole slaw,
corn on the cob or baked beans.

— Mashed Potatoes & Gravy 48%
— Fries 19%
— Cole slaw 17%
— Corn on the cob 13%
— Baked beans 3%

Who Better than KFC to Give You Chicken Facts?

early 1960s; in fact, chicken consumption surpasses that of beef each
year(3)

— Colonel Sanders (the founder of KFC, best known for his white suit and
black string tie) was the second most recognized public figure in the
world back in 1979(7)

worldwide(8)

— Laid head to claw, KFC chickens consumed worldwide each year would
reach 209,000 miles — encircling the Earth at the equator 8-1/2
times(9)

Free-Candy1

(PCM) Residents in Natomas, California (a suburb of Sacramento) were concerned after they spotted a creepy white van driving around the area with the words “Free Candy” splattered on the side with red paint and what appeared to be bloody hand-prints.

The van has no rear license plate and the hand-prints and smears meant to look like blood were leading towards the van doors. Overall, it gave many residents the creep factor and after snapping several photos for “evidence”, local media decided to investigate.

It turns out that the van was actually a joke art piece that the owner is driving to the Burning Man Festival. It is a Burning Man tradition to drive vehicles decked out in art to the week long festival that takes place in the Nevada desert.

The vans owner assures everyone in the neighborhood that the van is just a joke and does feel satisfied to know that if there were indeed a creepy white van driving around the area that residents would take notice.

Panic Erupted When A Giant Red Ball Rolled Through The Streets In Toledo!

Red-Ball1

(PCM) As a result of some severe weather that took place in the Toledo, Ohio area a giant, inflatable red ball was wedged loose from it’s place as part of an art exhibit in the area and began rolling down the street. The incident struck up a panic with Toledo residents caused several individuals to make an attempt to chase it down.

The giant red ball, which is 15 feet wide and 250 pounds, is part of an art installation projects called “RedBall Project” and consists of material that is similar to that of a rubber life raft. The installation was currently on display at the Toledo Museum Of Art.

Strong winds from a passing thunderstorm were able to knock the giant red ball loose and cause it to roll away down the street. Eventually, museum staff and a few other individuals were able to catch the ball and get it deflated before it could cause any real destruction. There were no injuries reported. The deflated ball was placed on a trailer and taken back to the museum for the artist to repair.

Because of the material the ball is made from it should be very easy to patch and there are plans to still have the giant red ball on display in several areas throughout the city, however extra measures will now be taken to be sure the ball is kept securely in place.
