Vodka Hell Happened Here?

Headline: Fish killed as soft drink leaks from factory

It seems that Sunny D, formerly known as Sunny Delight, is not half as bad for children as it is for fish. Around 8,000 litres of concentrate used to make the drink leaked into a watercourse on Wednesday morning, turning the river bright yellow.

I'd have to concentrate to leak 8,000 litres as well - even after too many beers!

I heard Prince wanted to be called Sunny D, but they got to it first. Thank God or else it would've been another Purple Rain. And who the hell needs that shit?!? - - other than Wendy and Lisa.

Aside from the fish, I wonder how many vodka jokes were floating around on that day? That mop-up effort had to be quite the job. That's a lot of wringing out to do. I'm glad I'm not an environmentalist, I hate mopping.

I also hate the word seepage. Sounds more like you need a shot or something to make that go away. Tequilla would've worked out nicely in this case.

If I worked on that emergency action team (aka: EAT - coincidence? I think not), I would've just busted out the curly straws and shot glasses, but that's just me.

On a positive note, after all the clean-up and hard work, the workers enjoyed a D-licious dinner: fish a l'orange.

Gives a whole new meaning to "taking a leak".

John: 8,000 liters is a bit much though, don't you think?

EOTR: Thank you! Hope you enjoy my brand of BS. (...sorry about the goldfish.)

I do like your humor. I've been reading your other stories--where do you get them? They are good.

(2 more fish died this weekend. We are fish killers.)
