Hungry Bear Steals Entire Dumpster, Picks Up German Food To-Go: VIDEO

Dumpster bear

Bears are powerful animals that catch and hunt all sorts of food in the wild. But sometimes, after a long week, all you want is takeout. That was seemingly one hungry bear's attitude early Wednesday morning in Colorado Springs. She didn't stop at a styrofoam box of goodies, though; she took the whole dumpster.

The Denver Post reports:

A hungry bear with a hankering for German food has made repeat visits to a Colorado Springs restaurant, where security cameras have caught the bruin Dumpster-diving.

During a Wednesday morning visit to the back door of the Edelweiss Restaurant, 34. E. Ramona Ave., the bear pushed the garbage bin about 50 feet into the parking lot, flipped the container over and opened the lid to eat food tossed the night before.

...

"There's some fresh, really good food" attracting the bear, Edelweiss manager Dieter Schnakenberg. "She passes up the recycling bin and goes right for the good stuff."

The restaurant is beginning to think of measures to secure the dumpster, including chaining it down or installing a locking lid mechanism. If the bear returns repeatedly, the Coloardo Parks and Wildlife division will likely get involved. 

Watch this industrious bear put her brain and claws to good use, AFTER THE JUMP...

A Wobbling Glob of Patriotism

Domino's to Arrest Former Employees for YouTube Food Sabotage

Dominos

Two Conover, North Carolina Domino's Pizza employees who videotaped themselves sabotaging food with their own bodily excretions and put the footage (which also happens to mention that they're gay) on YouTube have warrants out for their arrest.

Conover Domino's writes:

"In the last 24 hours, videos of two of Domino’s Pizza employees appearing inappropriately within one of our franchise restaurants have been circulating online. Since the videos first surfaced yesterday, the two workers have been identified, fired and the affected franchisee has filed a criminal complaint against them, and there are warrants for their arrest. The opportunities and freedom of the internet is wonderful. But it also comes with the risk of anyone with a camera and an internet link to cause a lot of damage, as in this case, where a couple of individuals suddenly overshadow the hard work performed by the 125,000 men and women working for Domino’s across the nation and in 60 countries around the world. We apologize for the actions of these individuals, and thank you for your continued support of Domino's Pizza."

What a couple of idiots. Didn't Timothy Tackett teach them anything?

Rachel Maddow Discovers Perils of Drunk Shopping

Rachel Maddow never owned a television until recently after she and her partner Susan Mikula had too much to drink and went on an Amazon shopping spree:

Maddow "I got drunk last Thursday and ordered one on Amazon! (Laughs) Susan and I ordered take-out Chinese and I made cocktails and then somehow it just happened. I mean, it wasn't like we were on some total bender or something—it was a weeknight—but I woke up the next morning and there was the confirmation email stating that we had indeed bought a $400 television. Of course, since we were drunk, we had it shipped to the wrong place, so now we have to get this giant box all the way to NYC from our place up in Massachusetts and figure out how to install it. Neither of us have had a TV in years and years. The last time I lived in a house with the TV was in 1990, when I moved out of my parent's house to go to college. Now there's a giant box with a TV sitting in Susan's art studio waiting for us."

(via dossier)

Maddow is a self-described "mean dork" about drinking. Late last month she bullied Jimmy Fallon into drinking a more manly drink, the Bijou.

And she'll teach you how to make it, AFTER THE JUMP...
