    Texas food tampering law requires altering or adding something to a product that would make it probable to result in serious bodily injury. What are the odds that she is suffering from an orally communicable disease that would be transmitted by a lick, and would survive the temperatures in a freezer. She is likely guilty of some other offenses (most likely some misdemeanors), but highly unlikely that any prosecutor could make a food tampering charge stick.

    Eddie Haskell put her up to it. We never learn.

    It was a stupid thing to do - but think about the day (in about 5 years) where there are cameras literally everywhere, and you will have running "social ethics" score based on every little thing you do (as is done in China already). Yeah, there will be a lot less of this - but there will also be a lot more social harassment by people you don't even want in your life.

    As for the girl - it was a dumb but immature stunt. She should get a slap on the wrist and maybe a day in a health clinic to learn about germs.

    Very wise discipline sir. I didn't realize she was a kid with obvious issues.

    THIS JUST IN TO EL CAP NEWSDESK, ICE CREAM BUREAU:

    Authorities report that a catfisher, NOT THE SUSPECT, made the “Flu Bell” claim.

    Gotta love the unreliable narrator that is the internet.

    Honestly, I just took a look at the ingredients list--and they could wrap it in solid gold and I'd pass :).

    No doubt. Sir--the video from your car clearly shows you touching your nose before walking in the store and were then seen on camera touching various pieces of produce.
    You're gonna need to come with us.

    At any rate it turns out this chic is a minor. And that's sorta to be expected since what she did was childish and dumb. 20yrs would be absolutely insane imo.

    I think a savage beating is appropriate, metaphorically speaking. Yeah, metaphorically.

    Wonder if you'd think that if she had MRSA, or something worse, and someone in your family contracted it from that tub of ice cream? A child or grandchild maybe?

    Completely asinine reply.

    I remember when I was a kid, me and my friends never did anything stupid or bad, always using exemplary judgment and portraying a sophisticated sense of humor. It’s sorry to see how kids behave these days.

    On Leave It To Beaver it seems like it was often Gilbert who put the Beave up to it.

    And to think Eddie became a cop in real life and then tried to pull a fast one on the city...

    Yeah, Gilbert got him stuck in the giant cup of soup.
