Man's best drinking buddy

BEND, Ore. - An Oregon man who loves beer and loves his dog has concocted some hooch for the pooch.

Daniel Keeton works at Bend's Boneyard Brewery tasting room and calls his canine creation Dawg Grog.

KTVZ reports there's no alcohol in the doggie brew. Ingredients include vegetable broth and spent grain.

Bottles of Dawg Grog are on sale at the Visit Bend store, along with other local beers.

Keeton says his dog, Lola Jane, usually licks her bowl clean.

TME Of course this is in Oregon.

Returning to the scene

PONTIAC, Mich. - Officials say a suspected robber of a suburban Detroit restaurant who apparently returned months later to get some food is under arrest after being recognized by employees.

The Oakland County sheriff's department says workers at a McDonald's in Pontiac spotted the 40-year-old man Saturday in the drive-thru.

Sheriff's deputies responded and took the Pontiac man into custody. He was being held at the Oakland County Jail pending charges.

The robbery happened Oct. 5.

TME To be fair, the McRib just came back he's not made of stone.

Eat fresh

ORLANDO, Fla. - A customer's request to put ketchup on a Philly cheesesteak caused a ruckus in an Orlando Subway shop.

Sandwich maker Lawrence Ordone told customer Luis Martinez that Subway doesn't have ketchup when the order was placed on New Year's night. There are differing accounts on what happened next, but Orlando television station WFTV reports Ordone lost his job.

Ordone says he told the customer he's 'never put ketchup on anybody's sandwich.' He says Martinez got 'mouthy.' Martinez denies that, but Ordone admits he flew off the handle at that point.

WFTV reports Ordone shoved a chair to the side and told Martinez 'fight me like a man.'

Martinez called 911. Ordone left the building. No one was arrested. But now Ordone is looking for a new job.

TME Ketchup on a cheesesteak? No wonder the guy refused; he is a sandwich *artist* after all.

Eggs and bacon

NEWTON, Mass. - Massachusetts police responding to reports of teenagers tossing eggs at a house last month got quite a surprise when they tracked down the suspects.

A department spokesman tells The MetroWest Daily News the three people who egged the house in Framingham early Dec. 11 were fellow law enforcement officers serving with the Newton police. They were off duty at the time.

They told Framingham police the egging incident was 'a prank, a joke between friends.'

The homeowner is a Newton police sergeant and their superior officer. He says is handling the matter internally.

No charges were filed, and the Newton officers were not publicly identified.

TME No word on whether the tactical 'poop-in-a-bag' squad was called in.

Seems legit

ALTOONA, Pa. - Police say a central Pennsylvania man arrested for public drunkenness when he tried to report his cellphone had been stolen claimed that the booze officers smelled on his breath was a week old.

Altoona police didn't buy that, and say they also found brass knuckles, a small amount of marijuana and a pipe on 19-year-old John Ozio, before they decided to arrest him on Dec. 23. Ozio's public defender could not immediately be reached for comment.

He remained in the Blair County Prison on Thursday, awaiting a Feb. 8 preliminary hearing on charges of carrying an illegal weapon, marijuana possession, public drunkenness, underage drinking and criminal mischief.

Police say Ozio claimed someone planted the marijuana pipe in his backpack and that he carried the brass knuckles as 'protection from being jumped.'

TME The future of America, ladies and gentlemen.

Think of the children!

LEHI, Utah - The Lehi City Council has renamed Morning Glory Road after a technology company planning to relocate to the street raised concerns about the name's sexual connotation.

Council members in the city about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City voted unanimously last month to change the name to Morning Vista Road.

Minutes from the meeting show that Xactware Solutions Inc., which provides software for the insurance industry, asked for the name change so that the road would fit with its 'international corporate image.'

'Morning glory' is the name of a flower and part of the title of a popular 1990s song from British rock band Oasis. But the term is sometimes used to describe male arousal.

Councilman Johnny Revill, who moved to approve the resolution at the Dec. 11 meeting, told the Salt Lake Tribune that he didn't know about the term's slang meaning previously but was happy to appease Xactware officials.

'That name has a negative meaning for some reason,' Revill said. 'When you use the word, there is a different meaning that can be taken from that.'

TME Wow - we didn't even know that was naughty. Thanks, uptight Utah!
