Story 1: Are We About to Get Macaroni-and-Cheese on Tap?
We don’t know if this is real or not. But if you introduce a groundbreaking concept like this, you almost have to follow through. There’s a rumor online that the food company Stouffer’s is working on a machine that serves macaroni-and-cheese on TAP.
A reporter in Cleveland tweeted about it, and a bunch of news stations picked it up. But then the tweet got pulled down. Some guy also tweeted out a rendering of what a mac-on-tap machine might look like. And Stouffer’s responded.
Their tweet said, “Would you look at that,” almost like they were just seeing it for the first time. Then he tweeted back and offered to beta test it for them. And they said, “We’ll keep you in mind.” What all that means, we don’t know. But if they do come out with mac-and-cheese on tap, it sounds like there’s a market.

Story 2: Coronavirus Insanity: Six-Foot Beer Coolers, Chuck E. Cheese Goes Bankrupt, and More
Here’s a fresh round-up of coronavirus insanity . . .
- Thousands showed up to a packed beach in England this week on its hottest day of the year so far, and left a ton of trash behind. They apparently didn’t have access to bathrooms either. At least one person defecated in a fast food burger box and left it.
- Chuck E. Cheese filed for bankruptcy yesterday. It doesn’t mean they’re closing, but business has obviously been hit hard by the outbreak.
- Dos Equis is giving away six-foot-long beer coolers today that are supposed to promote social distancing. You have to buy some Dos Equis and submit a photo of the receipt for a chance at one. (The promo starts at 11:00 A.M. Eastern, and they only have a limited number.)
- A Silicon Valley investor and his business partner are accused of repackaging thousands of non-medical grade face masks, and trying to sell them to hospitals.
- A family in Texas threw a surprise birthday party late last month, and now 18 of them have tested positive for the virus.
- Over a million dead people were sent stimulus checks, totaling about $1.4 billion according to a new report.
- More adults are living with their parents or grandparents than any other time in U.S. history. 2.7 million moved back home in March and April, most of them college-aged.
- Pakistan now says the outbreak is partly to blame for the plane crash that killed 97 people there last month. It turns out the pilots got distracted and forgot to lower the landing gear while they were talking about the virus.
- One in seven people have worked from their bathroom since the crisis began, according to a new survey.
Story 3: A Group Is Busted with a Truckload of Illegal Fireworks, and Three Dead Alligators
When you’re trafficking illegal goods, you can’t always be picky about what you traffic . . .
Cops in Staten Island, New York arrested a group of ten people this week, after they were caught with a truckload of illegal fireworks they were planning to sell.
And along with the fireworks, they were also hauling three dead ALLIGATORS.
We assume they were planning to sell them, or turn them into belts. But we haven’t heard anything else about it.
Police tweeted out a photo of the fireworks, but not the gators. They did mention them in the tweet though, and specifically said they were NOT joking.
The people they arrested are facing charges for fireworks trafficking and “unlawfully transporting three alligator carcasses.”
@NYCSHERIFF apprehended & charged 10 individuals in Staten Island with multiple counts of unlawfully dealing with dangerous fireworks & unlawfully transporting 3 alligator carcasses. (We are not making that up: ECL §71-1929) pursuant to a fireworks trafficking investigation 🚔 pic.twitter.com/9ynW6OVXbC— NYC SHERIFF (@NYCSHERIFF) June 25, 2020
