The all-powerful sauce
Hey, Friends! It’s been a while, and what better way or time to get back in the saddle than with a blog on a Monday? Normally this would be at the start of the day, but busy beggars can’t be lack-a-day-sical choosers, so here we are. And here we go.
I don’t know how much attention you all paid to the McDonald’s Szechuan sauce debacle that occurred around the country a week or so ago, but our top bizarre news story for today is about that. Apparently one woman got herself a 2000 Volkswagen Golf Mk4 in exchange for one packet of the stuff. When asked about it, the original owner said he “‘just needed me some friggin sauce!!’”
As Americans, we’re often faced with how Scandinavian countries are happier, wealthier, and smarter than we are. Last year, researchers (whose curiosity knows no limits) found about $3.1 million’s worth of gold and silver in Swiss waste water treatment plants. Unfortunately, authorities said the process of collecting the precious metals is not cost-effective. (Stares dumbfounded, turns away to count on fingers....)
Here’s something most Americans will understand: An Iowa man now faces multiple charges for leading police on an interstate chase. After police nudged his car to send it into a tailspin and stop the man, he said he had purposely led them on the chase because it was on his bucket list. The original officer had tried to pull him over for an expired registration.
And since we’re talking about criminals, security cameras in Hicksville, New York, showed a man breaking into a restaurant. While wearing food service gloves and waiting for his beans, chicken, and shrimp dinner to cook, he broke into the register. Then he ate his meal, cleaned up after himself, and left a dollar in the tip jar.
Hope you all had a good Monday!
