This is definately a fine cocktail. Although not one that I would drink.

Thursday morning, Juan Sanchez-Marchez, 41, a machine operator at Foothills Mail and Supply, was at work, taking his usual sips from a 20-ounce bottle of Ora Potency Fruit Punch.

He gave his name to the newspaper??? Okay, okay, maybe they got it from the police report. Still, wouldn't you tell the police something like: "Yeah, I thought I saw something suspicious, so I poured half of it out on the ground ... " Sheesh!! Wonder if ol' Juan asked for the rest of his soda back after the police left.

Not Mr. Perfect here. But for future reference: It's "definitely."

I like spelling it that way, as that's how I prenounce it. Do you have a problem with that. You definately shouldn't.

"Police do not believe that Sanchez-Marchez put the penis in the bottle. "

My vote for the best line in a news story. Ever. Anywhere.

That is an outstanding story. How sick would you feel after drinking most of it and then seeing a penis at the bottom. He must be able to sue for that; he will never be able to drink without fear again.

Police do not believe that Sanchez-Marchez put the penis in the bottle.

All things being equal, that's a sentence I'd never dreamed I'd see in any newspaper. What a fucked up story.

As I finished this comment I realized TTT said the same thing an hour ago. Nonetheless, I'm weighing in too.

Remarkable: the drink was called "Ora Potency Fruit Punch".

They left out the initial reaction, "Man this juice tastes like piss!"

Maybe the penis is supposed to be there. Always check the ingredients.

From the article, "His boss told him that it looked like a penis."

I'm concerned that he needed help identifying it.

You'd think they'd at least put a bigger penis inside a potency drink?!? The chinese have a saying for this... "yee ying bo ying" meaning "You are what you eat"
