Miami cop fired 8 times could make it 9
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/miami-cop-fired-8-times-141430862.html

This time around, Sgt. German Bosque—who has been fired eight times from three different police departments—has been charged with leaving his assault weapon with his girlfriend’s father, a trained security guard, while on an eight-day leave, according to CBS4 Miami.

The Miami cop has managed to return to his post despite his alleged vices. The Miami Herald reports Bosque has beaten back a long list of head-turning charges, including:

- busting the skull of a handcuffed suspect
- beating juveniles
- having dope and booze in his squad car
- ripping off suspects
- falsifying reports
- participating in an unauthorized chase where four people were killed
- calling in sick … from Cancun

http://www.yardbarker.com/nhl/articles/msn/video_reporter_who_said_chicago_blackhawks_had_a_tremendous_amount_of_sex_fired/13542461

Susannah Collins, the sideline reporter who attained viral infamy due to her on-air slip-up on Tuesday when she uttered the now-famous Freudian slip about the Chicago Blackhawks having a "tremendous amount of sex" during the regular season instead of "tremendous amount of success," has been fired by Comcast SportsNet Chicago, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times.



In my demand to be reinstated, I would ask that Comcast SportsNet prove that the Blackhawks didn't have a "tremendous amount of sex" during the season. Define "tremendous".

That seems excessive for it being an accidental slip of the tongue.

The Air Force officer in charge of sexual-assault prevention programs was just arrested... for sexual battery.

It was never meant to be anything more than an inside joke shared by the beloved family of Antonia “Toni” Larroux, who died last week after suffering a stroke.
Her tongue-in-cheek obituary was only supposed to appear in local Mississippi newspapers’ print and online editions.
But it ended up — through a long and complicated series of events — being posted Saturday in its entirety on The New York Times’ website.
And then it appeared seemingly everywhere.
“It’s just been a really, really neat thing,” her son, Jean Larroux III, told The Daily News.
Much of the obituary was farce, save for items including the time and location of the 68-year-old’s memorial service in Bay St. Louis, Miss., and a loving last paragraph.
Jean, 42, and his sister, Hayden Hoffman, 40, wrote the tribute together as joking memorial to a mother whose dry sense of humor stayed with her to her death bed.
The first paragraph notes not only her loyalty to the local Waffle House but also a long battle with afflictions including feline leukemia, rickets and scurvy.

They are 1 percenters who are 100 percent despicable.

Some wealthy Manhattan moms have figured out a way to cut the long lines at Disney World — by hiring disabled people to pose as family members so they and their kids can jump to the front, The Post has learned.

If you do dumb stuff in real life - say like run over a cyclist that "doesn't pay a road tax" - you may not want to mention it on twitter....

...because you never know who might be reading.

I just read the article and I guess they found photos of her tailgating drivers and other things she took and posted while driving.

Welcome to the future: 3-D printable pizza

A Texas company has won a $125,000 grant from NASA to develop technology that can print food from powder.

The last time we checked in on 3-D printing, it was being used to make print-at-home handguns. Now the hot technology is being adapted for a more benign purpose: making pizza.

NASA has awarded a $125,000 grant to a Texas company to build a food synthesizer that can mix food and print it out in layers using a 3-D printer. One of the easiest foods to print this way is pizza, because it can be created and cooked in layers.

Papa John's driver butt-dials customer, leaves racist musical message

On Sunday night a Papa John's customer in Sanford, Fla. checked his voicemail and heard a message from the driver who had just delivered his pizza. Not knowing he'd accidentally called the customer, who is black, the driver used racist terms to bad-mouth the customer and his wife to a co-worker. A keen bigot with a fondness for opera, the driver then launched into a musical number, replacing the lyrics of the "The Marriage of Figaro" overture with racial slurs. The customer posted a video of the voicemail online and Papa John's CEO John Schnatter has since offered a "heartfelt apology" on Facebook. The driver and his co-worker have been fired.

You can listen and read the whole thing here... it's very racist, but hey, we can all point and laugh and people that stupid.

Shall I point out that said racist phone message took place in the same town as the Trayvon Martin case?
