Around the Water Cooler 10/21/2011

Busy week for the news broadcasters.  Dr. Murray's trial for involuntary manslaughter continues, exotic wild animals are released from sanctuary in Zanesville, OH and last and LEAST is the re-arrest of Lindsay Lohan for parole violations. I use the term "arrest" in the loosest of connotations, as she made bail before ever being taken to jail. 

With the big news out of the way, let's see what the lesser reported stories for the week are.

OK Children, What Rhymes with Corn? 

Computer hackers took control of the Sesame Street You Tube page yesterday and replaced 20 minutes of child friendly footage with pornographic content before the site was taken down.

A contact told the Huffington Post joked that "between  the Bert and Ernie coming out petition and this is yet another sex controversy for the program....seems everyone wants "the Street" to teach sex ed.

As of Monday, the site was still down with an apology from the non-profit organization behind Sesame Street saying, " "Our channel was compromised and we are presently working with YouTube/Google to restore our original content. We always strive to provide age-appropriate content for our viewers and hope to resolve this problem quickly."

If the same parents that had the video of Katy Perry yanked because they felt that it was to "sexualized" for their little ones,  20 minutes of porn must have had them imploding.

Honey, I Left the Kids During a Heist

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Associated Press) -- Authorities say a couple shoplifted a cellphone and makeup from a Walmart, but forgot two children as they fled the store.
Police in Louisville, Ky., say 20-year-old Michael S. Kaufman took a cellphone and tried to take a tablet computer, destroying the attached display in the process. Police say 19-year-old Kelsey Grobmeier hid makeup under a baby car seat. When confronted, the couple fled, leaving a 3-year-old and 18-month-old behind in the store around 7 p.m. EDT Wednesday.
Police say Grobmeier returned to the store about an hour later to retrieve the children.
Kaufman and Grobmeier are each charged with theft, criminal trespassing, endangering the welfare of a minor and tampering with physical evidence.

I can only imagine the conversation when these two, got home and realized they forgot their children at the Walmart.  

Not a Good Plan

Miami, FL-  A South Florida woman got a really big surprise when she opened her cell phone bill and found that she owed $201,000. 

It wasn't a mistake.  Celine Aaron's owed the $201,000 to T-Mobile for overages not covered by her plan.

Celina has two brothers on her plan that are deaf and mute.  They communicate by texting and watching videos on their phones.  Normally, that isn't a problem. Her current data plan covers them and typically her bill is around $175.00.

The problem arose, when her brothers went to Canada and Celina failed to switch her plan to the International Plan. Her brothers sent over 2000 texts and downloaded videos that weren't covered by her plan.  When Celina called T-Mobil they told her the bill was correct. 

Celina, contacted a Miami TV station, who in turn contacted T-Mobile and the bill was reduced to $2,500. The cell provider has given her 6 months to pay. 

This might be one of the few examples that being deaf would be an advantage.  Celina probably had some really bad words coming out of her mouth...I suspect that she was also using some serious sign language in their direction.

Keep the Car, I Don't Want It Back
New Jersey police may have cracked the case of a thief that breaks into cars to burglarize them and leave a little "surprise" in the back seat.

Hadith Caesar was nabbed Saturday after a witness called the authorities to report that they saw a suspicious person inside a car on their neighbor's driveway.  This is the third incident of cars being broken into with feces being left behind on the backseat.

As, New Jersey statutes do not specifically cover deficating in cars, Caesar is being held on theft and harassment with a bond of $15,000.

I think they need to add another $10,000 to the bond for being "disgusting".  I guess New Jersey is going to have to write a new law to prohibit using the backseat of cars as toilets.

Don't Come Knocking When the Buick is Rocking

The 71-year-old Michigan woman arrested last month after police found her naked and having sex with a younger male companion in the back seat of her Buick was fined $585 and sentenced to a probationary term after she pleaded no contest today to a misdemeanor charge.
Rita looks very happy while Tim...not so much.
Rita Daniels entered her plea to a disorderly intoxication count this morning in District Court in Farmington Hills. Prosecutors dismissed an indecent exposure charge that had been filed against the septuagenarian following her September 3 arrest with Tim Adams.
Adams, 54, today also entered a no contest plea to disorderly intoxication (and had an indecent exposure charge dropped by prosecutors). He was placed on a year’s probation (like Daniels), fined $785, and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.  
As detailed in a City of Farmington Police report, Daniels and Adams (who was also nude) were discovered trysting inside the vehicle (license plate: DIVA 145), which was parked in front of a pair of restaurants. The car was rocking gently and its windows had steamed over, noted Officer Andrew Morche.
After opening the Buick’s passenger door to break up the Saturday evening clinch, Morche asked the naked pair what they were doing. Adams provided a succinct reply: “I’m fu***** this chick."
Cops subsequently learned that Daniels and Adams, pictured in the above mug shots, had met for drinks at a nearby bar “before moving to the back seat of the Buick.”

There is just so many question to ask about this one.  Exactly how drunk was Tim to get naked in the backseat of the Buick with a 71 year old that has Diva 145 on her license plate?   Why did Rita only get fined $585 and Tim got fined $785 and given community service?  Did he get a harsher sentence for telling the cop that he was Fu***** this chick.

The Good for the Day...That so many weird stories are out there to give us something to talk about.

The Bad for the Day...Lindsay Lohan was late today for her first day of mandated community service.  She was 40 minutes late to report to the LA Morgue where the judge from yesterday hearing told her to report.

The Weird for the Day....Chicago woman was charged with domestic battery (or is that batter-y) for throwing cupcakes at her husband during a dispute.  He said he was fearful for his safety.  She was charged and levied with a $10,000 bond.

So Sesame Street became Sexame Street? I can so picture Big Bird in a fedora hat, pimpin' out Maria and whalin' on Elmo to hustle his furry little ass!

It took an HOUR for them to go back and get the kids?! Does it really take that long to decide maybe the kids are more important than a cell phone and mascara? Seriously, it's not like they stole shoes!

They still charged her $2500?! A dollar per text? I'd send it to them in pennies, the thieving bastards!!

Yeah, I'd totally right the car off.

71 years old, gets drunk in a bar, picked up and then gets boinked in the back seat? Am I the only one thinking "you GO girl!!"?

Jayne said...

I love the look on that 71 year old woman's face. Talk about after glow. Doesn't it just say, "Yeah, I did it, and I'd do it again. Woo-hoo!"

I thought something similar. I had her saying "It's been awhile and I am as nutty as a Payday Candy Bar".

Cheryl P. said...

Damn, I wish you didn't already have a blogging partner. I would love to pair up on a blog.

If it is true that any publicity is good publicity, lot's of pervs are now signing onto

I thought that also. What the hell? An hour! What was that discusssion like?
No you you go....

Ibet the two brothers are having to work some odd jobs for the next 6 months. Celcelia probably will be switching carriers and have to pay an extra $350 to break her contract. Cell phone companies are bandits.

I would be thinking "go girl" if she looked like she was sane. I am curious why loser guy picked up a chick that clearly looks NUTS.

1. Okay, I wrote a blog post about the whole Katy Perry situation, a while back, when it all first went down. You can read my opinion here:

2. I cannot get over the couple that left their kids in a store after fleeing! WTF?! And the 19 year old is the mother of a 3 year old? Am I reading that correctly?

3. 200,000. phone bill? HOLY SHIT. Glad to hear T-Mobile reduced it for her.

4. OMG. Why do the defecating criminals have to be from NJ!

5. That couple in the Buick is making me crack the hell up!

- Lindsay Lohan, needs to go to jail already. She's had one too many chances, and it's enough.

- Too bad the lady didn't throw cake mix at him - then he could be a "battered" husband.

Imagine how proud I am of the top (and less-than-top) news stories this week... I live right in between the poor massacred animals in Zanesville and the couple who forgot their kids in Walmart in Louisville... And Josh wonders why I'm anxious to move. Haha.

Nicky said...

I'd love to collaborate with you, Cheryl! I don't know about starting another blog, but I'd definitely be ready, willing and able to do a blog post with you! Let me know what you have in mind...

hey...where's my comment? I hope it's not in your spam folder because I added a link to it?

Cheryl P. said...

Sorry, for the slow response. I went out of town for a long weekend and didn't have an Internet connection. AND for whatever reason Disqus put your comment into pending. I have no idea why as I don't have any moderation on my comments.

Yes, you did read that right. They had pictures of the parents on the article and both still look like children themselves. I think they need to grow up a bit.

I agree with you about Lindsay Lohan. How many times is she going to be in front of judges only to pay her bail and go back to the party. Enough for sure.

I thought your article on the Katy Perry thing was really funny and made a great point. I also, don't understand the over reaction.

Cheryl P. said...

Disqus is being finicky. I don't have any moderation on my account but once in a while it puts a comment into pending.

Cheryl P. said...

One of these days when we are having a day that we are at a loss we should post we should think of a shared post that incorporates both blogs. I just got home from a 4 day trip so I will be MIA for a couple of days trying to get caught up but at some point we should collaborate on something fun.

Welcome home!!

Probably because I put a link in the comment.

I still can't believe what that lunatic did with his animals in Ohio. It made me sick.
