Warning: This story is very gross!  

Speaking of water parks.  I took the kids to the water park yesterday.  There were a couple of police cars out front.  A lady was walking out with her kids and told me that I had missed all of the fun.  I asked her what happened and she told me a grown man had defecated in the pool!!  I went inside to see four police officers escorting a big burly man out of the park in handcuffs.  Can I get a big EWWWW!

Update!!!  There was no defecating!  It turns out according to the news report that he was caught exposing himself in front of children and seniors.  Why they chose to include senior in that sentence I have no idea.  I'm sure seniors have seen it....
~ Enjoy!


  1. Easy and cold-that is how I like my lunch these days and this foots the bill.
    Funny how the pool story got so twisted, but I am not sure which story is more gross!

  2. @Tina @flourtrader
    That's how I like my summer time lunches to be too!

    I'm gonna have to go with both stories were equally gross but I'm thankful it wasn't the first one and I'm thankful weren't there to experience the part that came before his arrest!
