Connecticut Dry Town Sells It’s First Drink In 81 Years!

Bridgewater

(PCM) For the past 81 years the town of Bridgewater, Connecticut has been a dry town, meaning there was a law prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages.  It was the last of the dry towns in the state, however that all changed when the first ever cup of beer was sold in Bridgewater during a recent county fair.

Bridgewater resident and volunteer firefighter Jim Lillis took the first sip of beer before passing the cup to other firefighters and fair volunteers who gathered for the ceremonial sale and to share in the tasting.

Residents approved alcoh ol sales in the town back in 2014 and it is surprising that it has taken them this long to finally sell a single cup of booze. The last time alcohol was reportedly purchased in Bridgewater was back in 1935. Restaurant developers were looking into the area for proposed eateries in the town, which only has about 1,700 residents, on the condition that they could serve alcohol. Thus far no restaurants have yet to open!

Wind Blows 1,500 Americans To Canada During Annual Floating Event

Float-Down

(PCM) The wind is responsible for a bit of an odd invasion that occurred near Ontario, Canada. It seems that 1,500 American’s were accidentally blown into Canadian territory while participating in a floating event that was taking place on the St. Clair River.  The Port Huron Float Down turned into an international incident when the “floaters” from Michigan were blown into Ontario by strong winds in the region.

The authorities in Ontario claim that there is no official organizer for the annual event and it poses no “significant and unusual hazards” given the quick-moving current, large volume of participants, lack of life jackets, and unpredictable weather conditions. It did however take them hours to get the situation sorted out and bus the approximately 1,500 hundred participants back to Michigan. Most were unprepared to be stranded, but made the best of the situation.

The event beagn at Port Huron’s Lighthouse Beach and was supposed to end at Chrysler Beach in Marysville, however after being blown off course things did not end quite as planned. During the floating event participants use anything and everything they can think of to craft floating vessels including wooden planks and even picnic tables. Ontario was left with a lot of clean-up after the event, however there are no hard feelings.

Hopefully the annual float down will have better luck with weather cooperation next year or else Canada may be faced with yet another unexpected raft invasion.

Nude Trump Statues With Questionable Anatomy Are Removed From Five U.S. Cities

naked-trump-statue

(PCM) The underground art movement INDECLINE recently erected statues depicting a overly exaggerated and severely poor endowed naked Donald Trump in five U.S. cities, as part of their “Emperor Has No Balls” art campaign.

The statues were designed by an artist named Joshua “Ginger” Monroe for INDECLINE, which is an anonymous art collective.  The statues were discovered in the early morning hours in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. Before they were removed, as they were placed without proper authorization, people were already flocking to see/take selfies with the naked Trump likeness.

The statues, which were created in an exaggerated likeness of the Republican presidential nominee, also featured a certain part of the male anatomy to be minuscule with a lack of testicles. In a statement released to the BBC, INDECLINE says, “It is through these sculptures that we leave behind the physical and metaphorical embodiment of the ghastly soul of one of America’s most infamous and reviled politicians. ”

INDECLINE went on to tell the Washington Post “Like it or not, Trump is a larger-than-life figure in world culture at the moment. Looking back in history, that’s how those figures were memorialized and idolized in their time — with statues.”

All of the statues have now been removed, however New York got a slight dig in on Trump with a press release about the incident saying “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small”.   Ouch!

Florida Man Banned From Ordering Pizza After Prank Calls Get Out Of Hand

pizza-delivery

(PCM) A judge has ordered that 49-year old, Randy Riddle, be banned from ordering pizza delivery after a serious of prank calls made by him caused local pizza businesses to lose nearly $700 in revenue. Riddle was arrested and charged with multiple counts of theft, as well as, making obscene and harassing phone calls.

After his arrest, Riddle was released on bail, however one of the judges conditions for his release was that he refrain from calling any pizza delivery establishments. A warrant affidavit quoted by TCPalm.com says “Defendant shall refrain from calling any pizza establishment and/or making any harassing calls or his bond shall be revoked”.

The local authorities claim that Riddle called several pizza delivery establishments and used multiple fake names and phone numbers. He would order a bunch of food and then have delivery drivers sent out to vacant properties or non-existent addresses to deliver food which was never paid for. After awhile this kind of situation adds up to major loss for the pizza shops.

This guy must have had some kind of terrible pizza delivery experience, either that or he just gets off on other people’s misfortune. He would also call the various restaurants just to complain about the service or the food. This is not Riddle’s first run-in with the law as he was previously convicted about eight years ago of making harassing phone calls when he lived in another part of Florida.

Not Making This Up! Sex Pigs Halt Traffic And Laser Attack Pokemon Go Playing Teens

pig-mask

(PCM) This is probably one of the best headlines we will read all year! An article published by the Swedish news website The Local is titled “Sex pigs halt traffic after laser attack on Pokemon teens”. That pretty much write’s itself, now doesn’t it? So, naturally we had to know more!

It seems that teens in the tiny Swedish town of Insjön were out playing Pokemon Go! when their were viciously attacked with a green laser beam by a couple who were wearing latex pig masks while fornicating next to a waterwheel. You know, just a typical Saturday night!

The first paragraph of the article reads “Tiny Insjön in central Sweden isn’t known for pig mask-wearing couples shooting lasers at Pokémon hunters before having sex by a waterwheel. But that could be about to change.” The article goes on to detail the rest of the bizarre situation saying that one of the Pokemon playing teens was hit in the face with a green laser beam that pig-mask wearing, fornicating couple was waving around while screaming.

The teens became afraid for their safety and ran back home. They escaped unharmed. In addition to shaking up the Pokemon teens, the couple also created a bit of a road distraction as they began to publicly fornicate. The article describes the scene by saying “The masked shooters, who also wore T-shirts labeled ‘King’ and ‘Queen’, were next spotted by incredulous motorists as they had sex beside the hamlet’s waterwheel.”

This created quite a traffic jam as motorists pulled off to the side of the road to watch the spectacle. The police were eventually called to the scene however they were far more concerned about the Pokemon laser attack than the public fornication, as such a thing is not technically a crime in some areas of Europe. The police felt the laser could have caused a serious injury if it were pointed directly into someone’s eye.

Thus far the sex pig couple has not yet been identified and do not appear to be facing any serious charges, other than perhaps public humiliation via the internet, however given the circumstances  we somehow doubt they actually care!

Parakeet Is Stolen From A Canadian Zoo For The Second Time In Five Years

Paco-The-parakeet

(PCM) Someone must really want their hands on this particular parakeet, as the poor little guy has been stolen, not once, but twice from the Canadian zoo Perroquets en folie in Montreal. The parakeet named Paco, is an  Alexandrine parakeet, which when bred can sell for upwards of $800 to $1200 dollars.

The zoo has placed a message on Facebook urging anyone with information about Paco’s whereabouts to please step forward, as they would like to see him safely returned. The zoo also released surveillance footage of the man who allegedly bird-napped Paco the parakeet. The zoo stated that the suspect had 24 hours to return the bird before they would be contacting the authorities as they have clear images of his face.

When reviewing the surveillance footage, a family can be seen asking questions about Paco, while at the same time the man can be seen sneaking into his cage and taking him out. The zoo owner feels that the family may have been in on the plan and created a distraction so the man could get in and steal Paco. The zoo feels they probably stole him for breeding purposes.

The zoo owner goes on to say that Paco has a very sociable personality and that is what made him a target for theft five years earlier. The suspect did not get away with the bird that time, as a passerby heard him squeak and contacted the authorities. Parakeets are very sensitive creatures and can become distraught by a sudden change in environment.

We certainly hope that Paco the parakeet will be returned to his home very soon!
