"NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) - A spill of frozen bull semen bound for a breeder in the state of Texas triggered a scare on Tuesday that temporarily shut down a U.S. interstate highway during the morning rush hour.
The incident began when the driver of a Greyhound bus carrying the freight alerted the fire department he had lost a part of his load while negotiating the ramp on a highway near Nashville.
"We didn't know what it was, but we were told (the canisters) were non-toxic," said Maggie Lawrence, a fire department spokeswoman.
When firefighters arrived on the ramp, they saw "four small propane-sized canisters (that) began to emit a light vapor," Lawrence said.
In addition to the vapor, the canisters also let off an unpleasant odor and the ramp was closed while emergency personnel tried to determine what was in the containers.
The bus driver turned around to retrieve the canisters. Once emergency personnel learned the smoking canisters were nothing hazardous and that they simply contained frozen bull semen that had been stored on dry ice, Tennessee Department of Transportation and fire department workers cleared the ramp."
Apparently these two idiots are the latest craze in Britain. Unfortunately, they're Irish. We thought Beiber was bad. Their name? A conjugation of thier names, Jed and Eward. Their Hit? An Ice-Ice Baby rehash with the Ice-man himself. The marketing mastermind behind that trick should be given a shit-medal. Thank god we fucked off mother Queen. I tried to upload a video but I'm at work and the Tubes are clogged from everyone around me actually doing work.

BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) -- Authorities have charged Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kendrick Perkins with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and public intoxication after an altercation early Saturday morning in South Texas.
A statement from police in Beaumont, Texas, said officers saw a large crowd outside The Ticket night club just after 2 a.m., and received complaints of fights and pepper spray inside.
An officer saw about 50 people inside around Perkins, who police said was attempting to fight the club's manager. The statement said the crowd pushed Perkins out the back door of the club, where he continued to yell obscenities and start other fights.
Perkins was arrested and taken to Jefferson County jail. According to KFDM-TV, which first reported the incident, he was released after posting $150 bond. The misdemeanor charges are punishable by fines.
Perkins' agent Thad Foucher declined to comment about his client's arrest.
Perkins was in the city about 90 minutes east of Houston hosting a camp that raises money for his foundation, which aims to help children learn life skills and drug awareness.
I love that last part about why he was in Houston.
If you've read the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test then you'll probably want to see this documentary. The guys who made it unearthed and edited down 40 hours of footage shot of the Ken Kesey lead bus trip on "Furthur" across America. The trailer doesn't really make it look too great but I think it's gunna be rad to see what Neal Cassidy, who always seemed a mystical character, was like in real life. Opens Friday.
