Crazy Zamboni Drivers!

In case you missed today's Weird, Whacky, and Useless News at 6:40 am, here was the winner of today's boneheads of the day.

(I think it's great that they took Zamboni's through a drive-through, but stunts like this are only ever funny once. So please, don't try this with any zamboni's you may have access to. hehe)


BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Two employees of Boise's ice rink have been fired for making a midnight fast-food run in a pair of Zambonis.

An anonymous tipster reported seeing the two big ice-resurfacing machines chug through a Burger King drive-thru and return to the rink shortly after midnight Nov. 10. The squat, rubber-tired vehicles, which have a top speed of about eight kilometres an hour, drove 2.4 kilometres to the restaurant.

The Zamboni operators, both temporary city employees whose names and ages were not released by officials, had to drive through at least one intersection with a traffic light on their late-night creep from Idaho Ice World.

"They were fired immediately," said Parks Department director Jim Hall.

"We're pretty sure it was just the one time. When we interviewed them, they didn't seem to be too concerned about it."

"I don't think they understood the seriousness of it."

Hall said neither the US$75,000 Zambonis, nor their $10,000 blades appeared damaged but the city could charge the employees with operating an unlicensed motor vehicle on a public street.

I'm back!

I didn't really go anywhere, I've just been really busy lately! This weekend I was Live on Location with Bell World and Wawa Jewellers, and this coming weekend I'll be at Canadian Tire in Wawa from 2-6 on Friday and 10-2 on Saturday. Drop by and say hi, and take advantage of the GREAT and I mean amazingly awesome deals during the Christmas Bonanza weekend.

Congratulations to Geraldine Crack and Sandra Case, they're the latest winners of 20 piece chicken from the Columbia Restaurant in Wawa. Hope you enjoyed your chicken ladies!

34 shopping days left before Christmas comes! :O Wow... I can't believe how fast the time flies when you're having fun. Keep it tuned for our Spectacular 12 days of Christmas.. I think we've gone crazy!! But good crazy... haha

I think that about wraps up today's babble... but I'll leave you with my word of the day. It's interesting to read and read all day everyday, especially when I come across a word I've never seen before.

So here it is: flummoxed. Enjoy!

Happy Monday!
