Vanilla Ice Accepts Plea Deal in Florida Theft Case

Back in February, Robert “Vanilla Ice” Van Winkle was arrested and charged for the theft of a pool heater, a few bicycles and other items from a Florida home. He first claimed that the items were curbside, however, later changed his story that it was all a misunderstanding. Doesn’t take a psychic to see where this trail leads. Though, if he needed a psychic, he could steal a smart phone and get SMS Readings from one. Yeah, that’s a thing. Psychic readings over text. If I was as rich/famous/whatever-Vanilla-Ice-is I’d probably start my day with one, just to avoid getting into lawsuits.

Back on topic, unfortunately, I believe this was the same kind of rationalization which led him a to a guilty verdict for plagiarism in a case brought forward by David Bowie and Queen back in the 80’s… Today, Mr. Ice Van Winkle accepted a plea deal that allows him to make $1,300 in restitution to the victims of his theft and perform 100 hours of Community Service with Habitat for Humanity — and stay out of jail. Must be nice being a celebrity…

Now that he’s out of hot water he has a TV show or something where it’s basically Pimp My Ride, but it’s people’s houses instead. I guess building houses for 100 hours was long enough to get addicted to it, because he’s taken to it like a fish to water. And he’s more buff than I remember. It’s worth a watch. Imagine Jersey Shore, Pimp My Ride, and any given HGTV show all rolled into one and you’re pretty much watching it already.

Who would have ever imagined Vanilla Ice, of all people, making something that would last longer than a few weeks (ha ha ice burn)? And it’s all because he couldn’t keep his hands off of other peoples’ things.

Alright, Stop. Collaborate and Listen. Ice was in Jail 'cause some shit went missin'...

Of course, if this Yearbook had been from a Florida high school, the typo would have made perfectly good sense.

Yearbook Typo: "I will miss the friends that I have made and the memories we shared along with the teachers I have boned with over the years."

Video of 76-Year-Old Plowing Through Supermarket

At least ten people wish they’d not gone grocery shopping on Saturday, April 14th, 2012 at the Publix on Belle Terre Parkway in Palm Coast, Florida …

This week, the Florida Highway Patrol charged a 76-year-old woman, Thelma Wagenhoffer, with Careless Driving after she drove her 2004 Toyota Camry through the front door of the Publix supermaket on Saturday afternoon. Of the ten people injured, only two were injured seriously, and both are expected to make a full recovery. Hiring the best car accident lawyer is the answer to get the right compensation. On the other hand, lemon laws is the one who helps people in getting financial compensation due to defective cars.

Ten things strike me as miraculously amazing about this story in Florida:

And, the number one thing I’m miraculously amazed at:

[ Warning: Graphic video, but again, no deaths or critical injuries. ]

Note: Seriously, watching that baby carriage just before the impact freaked me out until I read a little. I’m just glad that no one was killed, as things definitely could’ve been far, far worse.
