Yeah, well it'll never beat the Duff Beeramid's record for most number of immigrant deaths!

Some people build entire houses out of cans.

Was there a decent photo of the finished pyramid anywhere in that slideshow?  I couldn't find one.

Their music still sucks.
 
2013-05-07 07:46:42 PM
Not the pics of teenagers' cans I was hoping for.
 
2013-05-07 07:47:59 PM
A slideshow with 48 photos and not one of them actually shows the freakin' final pyramid?!

24,999 of the cans were pumpkin pie filling.  The other one was spotted dick.

Beer is food. In fact, it's a food group.

I recently went through my kitchen  so I could donate cans of food to a local food bank. Turns out 90% of what I would have donated had expired and would have just been thrown out. So I didn't bother donating anything at all.

Usually I have nothing nice to say about over zealous do-gooder kids. This is just another one of those times.

My bleary, after-work eyes read "teenagers" as "teabaggers." Teabaggers donating to charity? (unlikely!)

/ then I read the article...

After collecting more than 25,000 cans of food, a group of teens have apparently set a new record for largest pyramid built entirely of cans.

After the pyramid is dismantled on May 8, all of the cans of vegetables and other food will be donated to three charities - the Community Food Bank of New Jersey based in Hillside; the Salvation Army Plainfield Corps.; and an organization in town called Cranford Family Care.

When asked for comment, local homeless man Gerry Farnsworth demanded, "beets, beans, and carrots? That's it? Farking beets, beans, and carrots? Do I look like a goddamn bunny? Not even any soup?!"

In response, Cranford Teen Advisory Board chair Mark Dingelstedt stated that Cranford was proud to have the only vegan homeless population in America.

Joke's on them, half that pyramid is made of expired food!

Maybe not. If they're lucky.

I love how they decided to build a monument to their achievement instead of feeding people with it..

Thank you for taking the time to anonymously inform strangers of your dooshbagedness.

well, 20k were donated by an organization and 5k were raised by the teens.  but hey, it's still a good cause even though the rush to sainthood is premature.

I feel it is only fair to give warning. Why just tonight I was going to show the neighborhood kids how to make a fire by rubbing two sticks together. I decided fark it, and just poured a little 151 on some cardboard and flicked a lit cigarette butt on it, and went back inside to watch baseball. If they don't know how to use a Bic by now they are morons.

Someone has to take that pyramid down before it can actually help anyone, I bet it wont be these little attention whore kids.

The real heros here are the people who donated that food, not the kids who got t-shirts printed up and sent out press releases about their "accomplishment"

At John Glenn High School in Eastern Ohio, the students in the small rural community of New Concord annually gather around 60,000 - 70,000 cans of food to split between the Muskingum County and Guernsey County Salvation Army's.  it part of their Economics class.  In 2005, they donated 72,000 cans of food...

That is a terrible photo because of the angle, the framing, everything. It looks more like a flat road than a 3D pyramid, and if anything it makes the pyramid look small. There's no sense of scale. But thank you Sudlow for posting a photo that actually shows what the original article was talking about.

"Hey guys, I know you said you were hungry, but I just had the greatest idea.  Can you come back in a couple days?  It'll be worth it, trust me."
