Why say no when you can say yes? : taco bell, mild sauce. Image Credit: Flickr| torbakhopper
Taco Bell is generous, and not just because they’ll give you six days’ worth of calories for about nine bucks. They’re generous because if you ask them for hot sauce, they’ll give you a huge handful of packets. They’re good people.
But their reckless sauce distribution strategy backfired earlier this month. A woman went through the Taco Bell drive-thru in South Euclid, Ohio and asked for some mild sauce.
Unfortunately, the store was totally out and only had the FIRE sauce left.
And the woman was so angry that she wouldn’t move out of the drive-thru line until they either gave her a 50% discount or found her some damn mild sauce.
The employees wound up calling the cops and they diffused the situation before it could escalate and got the woman to leave. She said she’d be back the next day to talk to the manager, but we don’t know if she followed through.

Malicious arson doesn’t get FUNNIER than this, folks.
A 31-year-old guy named Shemroy Williams from Taunton, Massachusetts was SO angry with his ex-girlfriend back in March that he decided to set her house on fire.
But when the fire wasn’t spreading fast enough, he tried to accelerate it . . . by dumping his bag of CHEETOS into it.
There’s no word if they were Flamin’ Hot Cheetos… Ahem.
Anyway, the Cheetos didn’t work as an accelerant and the fire department put the fire out while it was still pretty small.
Shemroy was in court this week and he was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for malicious destruction of property.
There’s a guy in Kentucky who did something INSANELY stupid last week to try to get attention. And he IS getting it . . . just not the way he wanted.
21-year-old Johnny Mullins from Jenkins, Kentucky is an aspiring weatherman. He’s been posting videos of himself making weather forecasts on Facebook for a little while now, but he hasn’t built much of a following.
There have been a lot of wildfires in his area lately, so he came up with the horrible idea to SET ONE and film himself in front of it to try to get attention to his videos.
The cops quickly traced the fire back to him, and he was arrested for second-degree arson.
Fortunately no one was hurt in the fire, and the fire department was able to contain it.
And Johnny’s video about the fire only got a few thousand views on Facebook.

This giant pearl could be the biggest ever found in the world – after being handed in by a FISHERMAN. See SWNS story SWPEARL; The man, who has not been identified, found the priceless 34kg gem ten years ago in sea off the coast of Palawan Island, Philippines. He didn’t know the potential eye-watering value and kept it as a ‘good luck charm’ in his rundown wooden home. But a fire at the property earlier this year forced him to have a clear out and move house.
A fisherman from a city called Puerto Princesa in the Philippines was working 10 years ago when he spotted a huge pearl inside of a giant clam. He took it home to his little wooden shack and put it under his bed for good luck.
And he’s kept it there for the past 10 years. But there was a FIRE at his place earlier this year, and when he had to move, he decided maybe he should see if it was worth anything. And . . . um . . . yeah, it was.
The pearl is 77 pounds. It’s 26 inches long and 12 inches wide. Both of those measurements make it the biggest pearl in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD by a massive margin.
And it’s worth approximately $100 MILLION. (How many of his neighbors are going, “Man, we really should’ve robbed THAT guy” right now?)
The current world record for the biggest pearl is the Pearl of Allah, which was also found off the coast of the Philippines. It’s “only” 14 pounds and it’s less than 10 inches long.
The new pearl is being authenticated now.
Here’s a picture of the firefighters with the smashed chimney.
Trying to get into a house through the chimney is just about the WORST thing you can do . . . unless you’re Santa Claus, or a British orphan chimney sweep from the 1800s. No one else is qualified.
A guy tried to break into a house in Huron, California on Friday by sliding down the chimney . . . but he got stuck. And apparently he was afraid to blow his cover by yelling for help, so he just stayed in there.
And that became a BIG problem on Saturday afternoon, when the people in the house decided to actually light a fire in their fireplace.
THAT’S when the guy started screaming. The people called 911 and put out the fire . . . but it was too late. By the time firefighters smashed through the chimney to pull him out, he was dead . . . most likely from inhaling smoke.
