NoVa Terrorized by “Gallon-Smashing” Teens

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydJWmgwxJ4M

If you enjoyed tracking the "Harlem Shake" meme, but worried it didn't have enough potential to provoke personal injury lawsuits, well, you're in luck:  Now comes "gallon-smashing," as practiced by three Vienna, Va., teens.

The rules of gallon-smashing are simple: Go to a grocery store, get one or ideally two gallon bottles of milk or juice, then throw them into the air and pretend to slip. The smashing itself gets old fast, but watching people flop onto grocery stores is surprisingly entertaining.

Fox 5 aired a segment on the Vienna teens last night, and it plays like an outtake from Footloose. One woman who sees the video gets so upset at the idea of liquid on a floor, you'd think Fox 5 was showing her "2 Girls 1 Cup" instead of a suburban prank. On the other hand, one of the teens claims that they didn't plan to damage any property, which is a little rich given that they're doing something that includes the word "smashing."

    People who get so upset about this are just cry babies affected by the trolling of modern day america. So go ahead and not help people who you think are gallon smashing because if someone actually does fall and hurt themselves and you think they're gallon smashing I hope you feel terrible. Sadly there is really nothing you can do to stop it because they just abuse the system. What are people going to do? Sue them for slipping where there isn't a wet floor? If the acting is good enough there is no way to tell if they slipped on purpose or not.

    The correct word for this is "vandalism". Never mind the fake slip, this is destroying merchandise (NOT paid for!) and creating a mess (NOT cleaned up by the perpetrator). Shame on anyone who thinks this is amusing.

    Seth MacFarlane making rape jokes at the Oscars: FUNNY

    Teens faking banana-peel-style slip 'n falls while holding jugs of milk: EVIL, EVIL, PURE EVIL. THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND GIVEN JAIL TIME AND CRIMINAL RECORDS BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH YOUTH ARE BEHIND BARS.
