An employee from a Columbia, South Carolina Krispy Kreme is the subject of disciplinary action following an incident in which he refused to serve a customer, reportedly, solely because the customer was a cop.

A Richland County Sheriff’s Department deputy was denied his cop fuel and his department later issued a statement confirming the incident and stating, “the poor actions of one employee does not properly represent the views and values of the community, business, [or] organization as a whole.”

Krispy Kreme’s District Manager, Mechelle Carey, sent an email to the Sheriff stating “the employee has been dealt with serious disciplinary action,” further apologizing to the department, stating that Krispy Kreme has a long-standing relationship with law enforcement, military, and first responders.

The Sheriff’s Department believes this was an isolated incident, and the details of disciplinary action against the employee have not been made public.

So, was this doughnut denier a hero or a dick? Tell us in the comments.
 
Anyway, here’s NOFX with the greatest cop/doughnut anthem of all time:

When I was on the freeway, doing 70 all drunk
A copper pulled me over, and I thought that I was sunk
He came up to my car, I thought up a little trick
I took a doughnut, jelly filled, and put it on a stick
He came up to my window, and shouted to get out
So I quickly took the doughnut and I shoved it in his mouth
So I drove away, he shouted for some more
So I threw it out the window and he ate it off the floor

Cops and doughnuts
Cops love doughnuts
Cops love doughnuts
Cops and doughnuts

Indonesian police seize sex doll mistaken for ‘angel’

Back in March, a doll was discovered floating in waters near the Banggai islands in the Sulawesi province. A local sea fisherman spotted the floating doll and decided to rescue it. The fisherman took the doll home and his family took care of it. Photos of the doll started to spread online with claims that it was an “angel” or a “spirit.”

Indonesian news portal Detik said photos of the doll dressed demurely and wearing a hijab spread on social media shortly after its discovery.

Rumours then began to spread that it was a “bidadari” along with unverified stories about how it was found “stranded and crying”, prompting the police investigation.

Many across Indonesia continue to hold strong beliefs in the supernatural, including the existence of “bidadari”, which is a type of angel or spirit.

Indonesian police investigated the “angel” claims and discovered the the doll was indeed and inflatable sex toy. 

Local police chief Heru Pramukarno told reporters that villagers had found the doll shortly after the rare March solar eclipse that swept across South East Asia.

The timing of the discovery led some to believe the doll had a divine provenance.

“They have no internet, they don’t know what a sex toy is,” the police chief was quoted as saying by AFP news agency.

I dunno if this is an inflatable sex doll or not. She looks like she’s made of solid silicone. Still, it’s an honest mistake, if you ask me. Could’ve happened to anyone… because anything can happen for those who BELIEVE.

Watch six bulldozers battle it out in a batshit fight on the streets of China

The short story here is that there was a contract dispute between two competing construction companies and that these six guys—like low tech Transformers—really went for it. That’s probably all the backhoe backstory you need to be armed with to thoroughly enjoy this clip of these duelling KILLDOZERS on the streets of China.

The moral of this story? Never piss off a man driving a bulldozer, even when you are driving one yourself…

‘Marlboro Boys’: Shocking images of Indonesia’s smoking children

Five-year-old Ardian Azka Mubarok smokes at his home on March 27, 2015.

Perhaps you’ll recall that viral video a few years back of an obese Indonesian toddler chain-smoking cigarettes like a nicotine fiend. Some found it “funny” to see such a young kid puffing away like an old pro. Others were shocked and appalled. I mean, how could a toddler be a chainsmoker?! But the thing is, apparenlty seeing young children smoking is a very common sight in Indonesia and “public-health activists describe the country as a ‘playground’ for big tobacco companies like Philip Morris, which makes the country’s No. 2 cigarette.”

Young smokers begin the cycle of addiction but at a health cost for generations to come. The juxtaposition of young boys smoking like seasoned addicts is jarring yet this project is intended to not only shock and inform viewers but to demonstrate the lack of enforcement of national health regulations and to question the country’s dated relationship with tobacco.

Photographer Michelle Siu captured this dark phenomenon with photographs. The series is called “Marlboro Boys.”

Man says too much music and masturbation caused him to vandalize home

Stop me if you heard this one before: Meet 25-year-old Clearwater, Florida (natch) resident William Timothy Anderson Thomas who allegedly vandalized a home and then told cops he had “listened to too much music” and masturbated “too much,” which apparently caused him to feel like “going out and destroying stuff.”

Isn’t it supposed to work the other way around? Men! Florida men!

From the ____:

Largo police officers responded to a home at 2066 N. Belcher Rd. around 2 p.m. on April 8 after someone reported seeing a man smashing a mailbox.

When police arrived at the home, they say they found William Timothy Anderson Thomas, 25 on the property, shirtless and covered in dirt.

According to an arrest affidavit, a trailer tire had been flattened, a window on the house was broken, and a mailbox, a real estate sign and a garden angel were completely destroyed.

According to police, Thomas admitted to the crimes and destroying the property. “He also stated he had listened to too much music and masturbated too much.” What odd details to volunteer to officers of the law, I think we can all agree?

Thomas was arrested and booked in the Pinellas County Jail with the bond set at $7,000.

What I’m really dying to know is WHAT WAS THOMAS LISTENING TO???

Whitehouse? Mötley Crüe? The most recent Hanson album? I’ll bet it was something especially sick.

I’ve called our readers’ attention to the work of comedy genius Vic Berger a couple times before here on DM, and here I am doing it again for his mega-incredible “Batman v Trump: Official Trailer.”

In this his newest masterpiece, Berger takes his political pop culture détourné art form to another level. He’s the culture jammer extraordinaire of YouTube. SNL, The Daily Show, Jimmy Kimmel… Hollywood needs to hire this man now. One of the best, most-effective anti-Trump propaganda memes yet, and obviously there have been tons of them.

Just hit play. And share.

Deaf Leopards reach out to Def Leppard

The Arkansas School for the Deaf‘s team mascot has been the Leopards since 1941, though the members of British rock band Def Leppard were probably unaware of the school’s existence when they formed in 1977. The band’s name was originally “Deaf Leopard.” Influenced by the name “Led Zeppelin,” it was changed to “Def Leppard”—the original spelling seemed too “punk sounding.” 

Flashing forward to present day, photos of the Arkansas School For the Deaf’s team scoreboard have become a popular Internet share amongst pun-loving NWOBHM afficionados.
 

 
The Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports that a Change.org petition is now circulating, asking Def Leppard to take time off from their tour schedule, which takes them through Arkansas on May 11, to pay a visit to the School For the Deaf. Petition author Cary Tyson, a program officer at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, has suggested the band take a photo in front of the school’s now-iconic scoreboard as a way to raise awareness for the school’s work.

“What better place for a band photo?” wrote Tyson. “Help me convince the band to take a band photo in front of the scoreboard by signing this petition. Bring attention to a school that deserves it and does great work as well as a great band.”

As of this writing, the petition has a little over a thousand signatures.

Donald Trump’s eyes and mouth are interchangeable

Well, here’s a thing: Someone has noticed that’s Donald Trump’s mouth forms the exact same shape as his eyes.

Danny from Northern Virginia tweeted the image of Trump’s face with his strangely tight-lipped eyes.
 

 
Not content with that, Danny then photoshopped Trump’s mouth onto his eyes to make his point indelibly clear.

He’s right—Trump’s mouth does match his eyes and putting his mouth where his eyes should be makes no discernable difference.

WTF does it this mean?

Who cares…? It’s a chance to troll Trump.
 

 
And if the eyes are the windows of the soul—then what does this tell us about he who would be king of America? If his mouth spews offensive racist and deluded gibberish and his eyes look like his mouth—then his soul must be one dark festering pus-filled sore of poisonous bile. Or something like that.

Crushing news. It has just been announced that David Bowie has died of cancer at the age of 69. Anyone who has followed Dangerous Minds over the years know how much we adore the man. Our hearts are broken.

From Bowie’s official Facebook page:

David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.

 
I’ve been charmed by many of David Bowie’s appearances on screen. But this clip from British TV when he was a mere 17 is particularly wonderful. His subversive humor is already beginning to blossom as the spokesperson for The Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Longhaired Men. Sly devil.
