Rather than to entrust his frozen inventory to an associate, an unnamed ballpark food vendor brought his supply of snow cones into a bathroom stall during an Astros game earlier this week, then placed the entire tray on the floor next to him while he sat on the toilet. In the accompanying, depressing video, reporters talk about how they “broke” the story with the “exclusive” cell-phone video. “This unsanitary vendor might have sold his snow cones to you or your children,” the reporter intones, in the most serious newsman voice you can imagine, “had he not been caught on tape first.” The Snow Cone peddler was fired “immediately.” [KPRC/NBC]
