Shittsburgh: A Bull and Cow Have Sex in the Road, Man Sues Penguins for Too Many Text Messages
There's a Sidney Crosby joke to be made here, but I won't do him like that– because Malkin is! (pic via 96.1)
Welcome to the lovely city of Shittsburgh, where sewer pipes leak below PNC Park. Today, traffic was stopped while a bull and cow had sex in the middle of the road:
That's not anger, lady– it's passion.
The sports story of the day in this fine town, though, is of one Yinzer, who is suing the Pittsburgh Penguins because they sent him two extra text alerts during one week in March.
The folks at Puck Daddy did a nice job of breaking the lawsuit down, but basically it goes like this:
A guy signed up for text alerts from the Penguins. He was told that there would be a maximum of three texts per week (reasonable), but got upset when, during the week of March 11, he received – brace yo’selves – five text messages. The following week? Four. HE RECEIVED THREE EXTRA TEXT MESSAGES IN TWO WEEKS. THE HORROR! Somewhere, a child dies of hunger, a man gets shot, an old lady gets plowed over by a bus, and a Pittsburghian has to check his cell phone. We’re doomed.
As the folks at Puck Daddy point out, there are explicit instructions on how to unsubscribe from the text alerts. But no, a lawsuit seemed like the better option.
Yinzers: looking for a way out since 1992.
