Sweet 16

  • It Pooped On This Girl's Sweet Sixteen Party [Literally!]

    Outdoor parties are always so much fun. Fresh air, blue sky, sun beating down... that's the ideal, at least. It's always scary planning an outdoor party because as much as you hope the weather is perfect for the event, you need to be prepared for the worst, too: cold, rain, wind...*poop*! Yup, apparently poop should now be a concern when planning outdoor parties because it literally fell from the skies for one unsuspecting 16 year old, Jacinda of Levittown, PA, and her family and friends.

    While celebrating her Sweet Sixteen birthday party with family and friends outside in her backyard on Sunday, May 17th, Jacinda received quite the surprise: an airplane flew by her house and dumped feces all over the backyard her 16th birthday party was being held at!

    THUM-BUS-POO.jpg

    Fox 29 Philly got the whole story and interviewed Jacinda's stepfather Joe Cambray. He explained, "Out of nowhere, from the sky, comes a bunch of feces, lands on her." Poor Jacinda! This is not a way anybody wants to spend their Sweet 16. Luckily, though, this all happened after they at the birthday cake. Joe said, "We just got done with cake. Thank God. We took the cake back in, because within two minutes, something fell from the sky. It was brown, it was everywhere, it got on everything."

    The FAA told Fox 29 Philly that all airplanes are required to dispose of the waste at the airport. The family filed a complaint and the FAA will be investigating what happened. Hopefully Jacinda sees some birthday justice!

    Our best to Jacinda and all who attended her Sweet Sixteen party. We hope everyone still had an amazing time celebrating such an important milestone.
