Petco Pulls Boozy Dog Product From Shelves

Petco has pulled the plug on a product for dogs that contains enough booze to get some humans intoxicated.

The pet supply company confirmed in an email to The Dodo that Good Dog Pet Calming Supplement — a "homeopathic" treatment that contains a whopping 13 percent alcohol — will no longer be sold in its stores.

Petco spokesperson David Hallisey issued the following statement, offering to buy back bottles of Good Dog from concerned pet owners:

 

The health and safety of pets and people is Petco's top priority. We sell a variety of calming remedies for pets with anxiety and also recommend that pet parents consult with their vet to ensure that there are no underlying health issues. In light of recent concerns expressed by some of our customers with regard to Good Dog Pet Calming Supplement, and this product's alcohol content, we have decided to issue a voluntary recall, effective immediately. While we are unaware of any instances of this product causing illness when used as directed, customers can return this product to any of our stores for a full refund of their purchase.

 

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, ingesting even a small amount of alcohol can be dangerous for dogs.

Petco's decision to yank Good Dog from stores comes just days after the company announced it had removed all Chinese-made dog and cat treats from its shelves, products linked to the deaths of hundreds of pets between 2007 and 2014.

S’Mores Could Be Oreo’s Next Exotic Flavor

 

Ready for another exotic Oreo flavor? It’s possible that the world was never really ready for watermelon or Oreo-flavored Oreos, and that didn’t stop Nabisco from inflicting them on the world. We are intrigued with this image of a S’More Oreo cookie, featuring two-colored chocolate and marshmallow “creme” sandwiched between graham-flavored cookies.

 

Images of Red Velvet Oreos leaked online months in advance of their Valentine’s Day 2015 launch, though, so that timeline would line up nicely.

A Real Beer Made From Human Piss! (as Opposed to PBR Which Just Tastes Like it)

 

There’s been jokes about beer being piss water for years. Corona actually had a severe public relations crisis because people were led to believe it about the pale yellow Mexican brew. Now, there’s an actual beer, made from actual piss… and it still probably tastes better than Corona.

This new creation comes to us from the Oregon Brew Crew, who, in coordination with Clean Water Services, has taken high purity, drinkable sewage water and converted it into a craft beer… or, an I PEE A, if you would.

Clean Water Services wants to show off their treatment process, and that’s why they’ve approached the Oregon Brew Crew, who are a group of pretty advanced home brewers. At present Oregon isn’t wild about the idea of distributing urine-based beer in the state. According to NPR, “The Oregon Health Authority has approved the company’s request for the beer project. But the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission will also have to sign off on it before anyone serves a beer made from recycled sewage.”

Soylent beer is Pee, people!

Frozen Chicken Truck Bursts Into Flames After Collision With Bee Truck

 

INDIO, Calif. (AP) — A big-rig hauling frozen chicken collided with a truck carrying bees in Southern California, igniting a fireball that quickly cooked the chicken.

The California Highway Patrol says the crash on Interstate 10 near Palm Springs occurred shortly after 7 a.m. Monday.

The truck with the chickens burst into flames and was incinerated, but the driver escaped with minor injuries.

The driver hauling the bees was not hurt, although highway patrol officers on the scene reported bees buzzing everywhere.

Photos, meanwhile, showed chunks of blackened, highway-roasted chicken.

The crash closed the interstate's westbound lanes, and highway patrol officers kept traffic flowing by directing vehicles onto the center median.

A beekeeper was summoned, and the cleanup was expected to last several hours.




 ‘Crocodile poison’ beer kills nearly 70 at funeral in Mozambique

At least 69 people died after drinking poisonous beer at a funeral in southeastern African country Mozambique, health authorities confirmed. The beer was locally brewed and is believed to have been poisoned with crocodile bile during the funeral.

The toll of the people affected did not stop there. At least another 169 victims remain at the hospital according to Paula Bernardo, the district director for Health, Women and Social Action, quoted in Reuters.

 

There is a risk that the death toll might climb, as health authorities admitted they do not have the resources to deal with this kind of situation.

"As we prepared to determine the cause of death of people we began to receive a lot of people with diarrhea and other muscle aches. After that we began to receive dead bodies from several neighborhoods," Bernardo said.

All of the victims are said to have attended the funeral on Saturday, where they drank the locally brewed beer Pombe, according to Albertini.

 

Police investigation has discovered that the beer was likely poisoned with crocodile bile during the funeral. Those who drank the beer in the morning of the funeral day reported no signs of illness, while those drinking it in the afternoon got sick, according to authorities.

 

The woman, who was in charge of brewing the beer, also died from poisoning.

All the blood and beer samples are being sent to the capital Maputo for testing as regional offices do not have the right technology.

 

“We don’t have the capacity to test the samples,” provincial health director Carle Mosse told Radio Mozambique.

Investigation into the incident is ongoing and health officials are helping the affected families by collecting donations of food and other items.




Nine-Year-Old Suspended For Threatening Kid With His Ring of Mordor

 

We’ve all heard of the lengths that schools go to enforce their zero tolerance policies against violence. Children have been expelled for butter knives and even drawing pictures of guns. Now, one nine-year-old boy has been suspended from school, for threatening to make someone disappear through the magic of the One Ring.

Here’s what the NY Daily News had to say about it:

“It sounded unbelievable,” the boy’s father, Jason Steward, told the Daily News. He insists his son “didn’t mean anything by it.”

The Stewards had just watched “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” days earlier, inspiring Aiden’s imagination and leading him to proclaim that he had in his possession the one ring to rule them all.

Surprisingly, this incident did not happen in Florida, but in the town of Kermit, Texas.



Jimmy The Groundhog Bites Mayor, Signifying That Winter Will Last Forever

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (AP) -- A mayor in Wisconsin has learned a valuable lesson about his city's weather-predicting critter: Don't get too close.

Jimmy, the official groundhog in Sun Prairie, bit the mayor's ear during a Groundhog Day celebration on Monday.

The groundhog's handler was holding the animal next to Mayor Jonathan Freund's face when it promptly bit down on his ear.

Freund flinched, but he went on with his declaration that Jimmy had predicted an early spring.

WISC-TV reports ( http://bit.ly/16792SP ) that the Groundhog Day celebration became even more precarious when Jimmy's handlers, Jerry and Maria Hahn, said the mayor had gotten it wrong and that there would be six more weeks of winter.

Then the city later issued a statement saying only the mayor can translate Jimmy's prediction.

Justine King Arrested While Allegedly Sitting Pantless On Whisky Bottle

A woman arrested on suspicion of DUI made a memorable impression on officers for allegedly sitting naked on top of an empty bottle of whisky.

Justine King, 33, was arrested Sept. 30, after officers allegedly found her sitting naked from the waist down in a blue Chevrolet Malibu that she crashed, KDKA TV reports.

King's pants were under the car's pedals and she was sitting on a bottle of Black Velvet whisky, according to an affidavit filed Jan. 15 as part of the court case against her. The documents were obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Officers told King to put her pants and exit the vehicle. She allegedly responded, “I don’t have any pants! I left my home without them!” the affidavit said.

The report says King was finally pulled from the car, handcuffed and placed into a cab, all while being “extremely belligerent, kicking, pulling away, and struggling."

The suspect initially refused to identify herself, telling authorities, “The government got my name. You ain’t getting it! Ask the government." On the way to the station, officers said King kept "banging her head off the inside of the window panel."

King was taken to a nearby hospital, but refused to take a blood test or put on pants, according to SundayWorld.com.

King was arrested on charges of drunken driving, resisting arrest, reckless driving, open lewdness, and disorderly conduct.

She is due in court Feb. 20 to be arraigned on those charges.
