Those Starbucks drinks are expensive. I don't blame them. That story was from a few years ago. The blonde showed up in the news two years later after she and her boyfriend got in trouble for setting up a fake armed robbery in order to get Oxycodone.

[font=Georgia]Bears Break in to Cabin, Drink More Than 100 Cans of Beer[/font]

ABC News wrote:Four bears walk into a cabin.  This sounds like the start of the kind of joke that usually involves a bar, right? Well, there’s no bar in this story, but there’s lots and lots of beer. A mother bear and her three cubs are believed to have smashed their way into a Norwegian cabin and knocked back more than 100 cans of beer.

[font=Georgia]Oregon man survives being compacted in dumpster—twice[/font]

Justin Gilpatrick said he hadn't had a drink in years. But after a night out drinking with a friend in Portland. Ore., the 27-year-old decided he was too intoxicated to drive home. So, in a questionable move, Gilpatrick decided to sleep it off in a nearby dumpster.

[font=Georgia]Oakland Man's Puppy Found In Nebraska Newspaper Box[/font]

NBC wrote:An Oakland trucker is accused of stashing a puppy in a newspaper box during his lunch break in Omaha, Neb., according to reports. Nebyou Brook of Oakland on Saturday put his 7- to 9-week old terrier in a newspaper box in Omaha while he went into a fast-food restaurant to eat his lunch, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. He couldn't leave his dog in his truck and he couldn't bring it into the fast food restaurant, so the newspaper box seemed like the next-best place, according to reports. He was seen popping his puppy into the box, so another man put change into the newspaper box to retrieve the dog, according to the newspaper. Animal control officers cited the long-haul trucker for animal neglect, but he was allowed to keep his dog, according to the Associated Press.

The particular video below, I almost died laughing when I first watched it. But anymore, it really isn't funny because everyone knows what you're doing. I think the penalties might be a bit stiff for this one, but who knows.

When I worked at a grocery store over ten years ago, I would smash milk we were throwing away against the trash compactor wall all the time.

It's really no different than any of the other youtube prank videos. To me, the funniest part is watching the cutomers reactions like, "is this |expletive| for real"?    or something like that

The impression I ahd was that the camera was wedged between some groceries and looking through the front of the cart. not that it matters
