Giant Popsicle Melts, Floods NYC Park
A classic example of the truth is stranger than fiction!!!
"NEW YORK - An attempt to raise the world's largest ice pop in a city square ended with a scene straight out of a disaster film but much stickier.
The 25-foot-tall, 17 1/2-ton treat of frozen Snapple juice melted faster than expected Tuesday, flooding Union Square in downtown Manhattan with kiwi-strawberry-flavored fluid that sent pedestrians scurrying for higher ground.Firefighters closed off several streets and used hoses to wash away the sugary goo. Some passers-by slipped in the puddles, but no serious injuries were reported."
