At about 1:40 a.m. on Thursday, South Euclid, OH police responded to a call at the Walmart Supercenter on Warrensville Center Rd where a 23-year-old woman and her 20-year-old boyfriend were caught by security guards attempting to steal sex toys.
A security guard told police he saw the couple put the stolen items in the woman’s purse. The couple paid for a few other items in the self-checkout lane and then tried to leave, reports said.
The woman became verbally aggressive before police arrived, reports said. Police finally were able to calm her down and she turned her purse and the stolen items in to the police.
The total value for the stolen goods was about $30.
The word Walmart used in the same sentence as the words “sex toys” is just something I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around.
Nationally, my home town of Cleveland, OH is the butt of many jokes. From being called the “mistake on the lake,” to being reminded by ESPN every 20 minutes that it has been since 1964 since one of our sports teams has won a major championship, to the endless jokes about our river catching fire.
We can take it, to grow up and live in Northeast Ohio you have to be tough.
The thing is, something that the rest of the world just doesn’t understand… Cleveland, even with all its flaws, is actually a pretty amazing city.
Over the course of about a month this summer, 6 guys came together to put together this video called, “Cleveland: A Million Stories.”
Is a 12 pack of beer not cutting it out for you? Well Texas Brewery, Austin Beerworks has just the product for you.
The 99-pack of beer.
Via CBS Money Watch:
Sales of the initial run of 20 99-packs don’t begin until Thursday in Austin, but news of the innovation has spread online, astounding the brewers over the public reaction.
“We’re a small brewer,” said co-founder Michael Graham. “We only sell in our hometown. We’re pretty amazed at how quickly it spread everywhere.”
He said the 99-pack launch was timed to coincide with the start of school at the University of Texas as well as the first football game this coming weekend.
Yet what may have been conceived as a fun promotional stunt may become a real business for the craft brewery.
“It’s really impractical,” said Graham, who expressed skepticism that customers would buy more than one 99-pack. “We conceived of it just to be silly, but we never thought there would be any real interest from retailers and consumers,” he told CBS MoneyWatch. “I guess we underestimated the power of a stupid idea.” Read More…
So apparently there is a “secret menu” item at Arby’s that is so awesome that the only way to make it better would be to include a cigar and a shot of whiskey.
Arby’s had been recently pushing a new ad campaign to show people that they are much more then just roast beef sandwiches. With that campaign, came a new opportunity.
Via The Washington Post:
“People started coming in and asking, ‘Can I have that?’” said Christopher Fuller, the company’s vice president of brand and corporate communications. So Arby’s began granting their wish.
The “Meat Mountain,” as it’s called, will not be listed on the menu, but store associates will make it for customers who ask. The price is $10. For that, you get a bun and, from the bottom up:
2 chicken tenders
1.5 oz. of roast turkey
1.5 oz. of ham
1 slice of Swiss cheese
1.5 oz. of corned beef
1.5 oz. brisket
1.5 oz. of Angus steak
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1.5 oz. roast beef
3 half-strips of bacon
Arby’s says the Meat Mountain is so tall that it won’t fit into the traditional clamshell packaging. So if you dare to scale the Mountain, it will come wrapped in paper. Read More…
I can just smile as I hear the pitiful sobs of vegan losers throughout the world. I wonder how long before an offended Muslim complains that there is bacon in there?
Bowing to political correctness, and citing “safety concerns” the owner of Sneakers Bistro in Winooski, VT removed an advertisement that read “YIELD FOR BACON,” because a local Muslim resident found the sign offensive.
It got there as part of “Operation Bloom.”
A city program put it in place to keep its flower beds beautiful. If businesses do some gardening they can post an advertisement where they do it, but the word “bacon” on the Sneakers Bistro sign started a discussion about diversity on the Winooski Front Porch Forum.
It started with a post from one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork. She said as a Muslim she is personally offended by it.
The owners of Sneakers spoke to WPTZ. They say they’ve reached out to the individual who made the post and proactively took the sign down. They also say they regret any harm caused by the sign, and that their goal was never to cause stress or bad feelings. Read More…
On their now deleted Facebook page Sneakers Bistro had this response:
“We are here to serve people BREAKFAST, not politics. We removed the sign that was located on public property as a gesture of respect for our diverse community. There were also concerns raised about safety. Removing it was not a difficult decision. We still love bacon. We still love eggs. Please have the political conversation elsewhere.”
I’m interested to know what these “concerns raised about safety,” were? Did they think that the sign was going to cause potential traffic accidents over cars stopping in the street over the thoughts of wonderful tasty bacon goodness? Or were they concerned about violence over their harmless and amusing ad?
It is a free country, or at least it is supposed to be. Much like I wrote in my post about atheists attacking an Arkansas restaurant for their church bulletin promotion, I believe that in a free society small-business owners should be allowed to run their businesses as they see fit. So they have every right to pull their sign down due to political correctness, I just think that its sad and pathetic.
Sometimes you will see a picture on the internet, look at it and decide “that has to be photo-shopped.” At first glance when seeing this picture that was my thought. Well I was wrong, big government strikes again.
Last Thursday, August 21st, a couple of nearly 15-foot parking restriction signs were spotted around Culver City, CA.
Via The Los Angeles Times:
The signs were posted Thursday.
By Friday afternoon, the signs were gone, said Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells.
Sahli-Wells — who has a son who attends the school — said there have been parking and traffic problems in the area around the school for several years. When neighborhood parking restrictions were put into place two years ago, “it relieved the community, but made it very difficult for teachers, staff and parents to access the school,” she said in an e-mail.
The towering signs “are an example of a good program with misguided communication,” Sahli-Wells said. “When I saw the number of signs, originally intended to communicate to the public and school community about the new procedures, it was clear to me and everyone else who saw them that rather than clarifying the new procedures, they were just confusing.” Read More…
“Good program” and “misguided communication,” doesn’t that just sum up government to a tee?
… No, surprisingly enough, the missing POTUS was not found on a golf course. As a matter of fact, unfortunately it was not the real dear leader that had gone missing recently, but a statue of him.
Tiffany Bruce of Wilkes-Barre, PA spent months saving up the $1249 needed to purchase a life sized replica of President Barack Obama.
In the time that she has had the icon of the false idol, she and her family had dressed it up for Halloween as well as as Santa Clause for Christmas. Earlier this week Bruce had found that the statue was missing from its normal position on a bench on her front porch.
Via PA Homepage:
Wilkes-Barre police say a fisherman found the statue in Francis E. Walter Dam in White Haven Thursday morning.
He notified police and Wilkes-Barre D-P-W workers are in the process of returning the statue.
Bill Phillips couldn’t believe his eyes Thursday morning when he saw President Obama at Francis E. Walter dam in White Haven.
“I just happen to glance down at the picnic table down here and I was like no it really isn’t . so I came down and drove around up next to it and looked at it and just bursts out laughing.”
Of course it wasn’t the Commander in Chief himself …but a life size statue of President Obama.
After seeing news reports he knew it was the statue stolen from a Wilkes-Barre woman’s porch earlier this week so he called authorities.
Phillips called police..meanwhile … snapped his first selfie with the president and a few more. Read More…
I say we replace this Obama with the one in the Oval Office, won’t see much of a difference.
It seems that 19-year-old Bobby Burt, who apparently won the name lottery at birth, has one heck of a sense of humor. The frequently arrested teen picked a very interesting choice of clothing to wear to take the booking photo for his recent 48-hour sentence for drunk driving — a shirt emblazoned with a picture of his most recent mugshot.
Via The Smoking Gun:
After copping a drunk driving plea, Burt was ordered to spend two days in custody, beginning August 8 at 6 PM. “Going to do my 48 hours whoo,” Burt announced on Facebook two hours before surrendering.
When he later arrived at the jail, Burt was searched, directed to pose for a mug shot, and shown to a cell. He was especially prepared for the booking photo session.
As seen in the above mug shot, a coworker of Burt’s at a Pittsfield restaurant created a shirt with a reproduction of the booking photo taken following his mid-June arrest. The t-shirt photo was captioned “Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014” and “sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff.”
Beneath Burt’s mug shot was a second image showing a cat sitting on a couch flanked by a TV remote and a bottle of Bud Light. The cat photo, sadly, was too far down the shirt to be captured by the jail’s mug shot camera.
Burt, who happily wore the orange shirt for his jail photo, subsequently wrote on Facebook that corrections officers made him hold the slate in a way “so you could see the shirt.” He added, “They laughed there asses off haha.” The shirt’s mention of a family reunion is an apparent reference to an incarcerated Burt relative.

I won’t be impressed until he wears a t-shirt of himself wearing a t-shirt of himself wearing a t-shirt of himself.
I’m more & more convinced each day that the vast-majority of vocal atheists aren’t even really devout in their lack of faith — they’re just a bunch of malcontents and assholes who enjoy stirring up trouble. Sort of like the scumbag ass-hat’s who are harassing a small-business owner in Arkansas.
On July 19th, Steven Rose, the owner of Bailey’s Pizza in Searcy, Arkansas, posted a pictuire of the sign outside his business on the restaurant’s Facebook page on. It was a promotion depicting a 10% discount for anyone coming in with a church bulletin. A few days later the post received a comment from “Bong Hits for Jesus” that read, “Good luck on your discrimination lawsuit.”
A few days after that Rose received a letter from the douchebags at the Freedom From Religion Foundation, postdated July 30th, the same date of the “Bong Hits for Jesus” post. The atheist nut-jobs called the promotion a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Rose does not agree. “It has nothing to do with excluding anybody,” said Rose. “It’s not specific to any church. It’s another way to bring people in and make them feel welcome.”
Rose opened his pizza buffet style pizza joint back in July. His restaurant has a wall allowing customers to write bible verses and scriptures.
In the center of the wall, it reads,
“God is the center of our lives, so our scripture wall is the center of Bailey’s Pizza.”
Rose received a letter from the national organization the first week of August. “It says that because I give a ten percent discount to people who go to church on Sundays, I’m discriminating against those who don’t go to church.” Read More…
What’s next? How about we sue car insurance companies that give a good grades discount to student drivers, that’s discriminating against those with learning disabilities. While we’re at it we should also sue anyone giving discounts to people with College I.D.’s, that’s discriminating againt people who can’t afford higher education. We should also sue anyone that makes people clip a coupon, that’s discriminating against those who don’t get the Sunday paper delivered.
Hey atheists, there is a simple solution if you don’t support this small-business owners right to run his business the way he see’s fit — don’t spend your money there jackasses!
In a free society people (small-business owners included) should be allowed to live their lives as they choose and run their businesses as they see fit.
Talk about a fitting name.
ORANGE, Va. (AP) – A Virginia man with the last name Stoner is facing drug charges after police found more than $10,000 worth of marijuana plants at his home.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says 42-year-old Paul Scott Stoner of Unionville is charged with growing marijuana and having a firearm while in possession of more than a pound of marijuana.
Media outlets report that the charges stem from an ongoing investigation related to the alleged sale of marijuana to children in Orange County. Further charges are pending. Read More…
Seriously stop the fucking planet, I want off.
I wrote a poem once in High School for submission to the schools poetry book, it was deemed too dark and violent for a high school publication. My punishment? It wasn’t included — that was it, I do think I got an A on the project though. It was a good thing that my poem was rejected anyways as it wasn’t entirely original, I took a Metallica song and added extra verses to it.
I couldn’t imagine what sort of punishment I would get in today’s over-sensitized liberal dominated world of ridiculous zero-tolerance policies. The school year is barely even a few days old and already a 16-year-old student at Summerville High School in South Carolina has been not just suspended but arrested as well. All because of a gun.
Not just any gun, this violent juvenile delinquent was sent to jail for the most dangerous gun of all, a fictional one.
That’s right, the poor kid didn’t actually bring a gun to school, he didn’t even threaten to bring the gun to school or make any threats at all. In a class project where the kid wrote an obviously fictionalized version of what he did during the summer, the suspended and arrested student wrote that he had purchased a “gun” to kill his neighbors pet “dinosaur.”
Via WWBT NBC12:
Alex Stone said he and his classmates were told in class to write a few sentences about themselves, and a “status” as if it was a Facebook page.
Stone said in his “status” he wrote a fictional story that involved the words “gun” and “take care of business.”
“I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business,” Stone said.
Stone says his statements were taken completely out of context.
“I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have “gun” in it. But a pet dinosaur?” said Alex’s mother Karen Gray.”I mean first of all, we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”
Investigators say the teacher contacted school officials after seeing the message containing the words “gun” and “take care of business,” and police were then notified on Tuesday. Read More…
Police then arrested the poor kid and charged him with “disorderly conduct.”
