Of course it was inevitable that some idiot would release some snakes at a screening of SNAKES ON A PLANE, though authorities in Phoenix are now saying it was a hoax and the rattler in the theater was a stray--yeah, right! Either way it makes you think that William Castle could have had a field day with this movie.
How about the St. Louis man who was cooking a burger on his George Foreman grill and claims to have seen an image of the Virgin Mary in the grease collected in the plastic drip pan? Perhaps he was using the special "religious icons" model for that little something extra as your meat gets heated.
In even more absurd (yet certifiable) burger news, the Gateway Grizzlies--a Frontier League baseball team in Saget, Illinois--have been selling "Baseball's Best Burger" for $4.50. What makes it the best? It's a sharp cheddar cheeseburger topped with two slices of bacon, but instead of a bun they use a split Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut . Maybe they also give out Lipitor at the concession stand.
Is this a great country or what?
