Milkshake Brings Boys To Yard

with 70 comments

milkshakeForest Park, Ohio, April 29 – Residents of this Cincinnati suburb reported disturbances this morning after a local woman made a milkshake and began drinking it in her front yard.

Kelly Rogers, 19, of Fairborn Avenue, put chocolate ice cream and milk into blender at about 7:25 AM Tuesday. Neighbors soon felt the ground rumbling, as thousands of young men, some as young as twelve, streamed onto the street and crowded into and around the Rogers property, apparently to watch Ms. Rogers consume the liquid breakfast.

The crowd continued to grow for almost an hour, according to Denise Jefferson, who lives several houses away. “We felt the earth shake, and then it just kept shaking until maybe 8:30, I don’t know,” she told reporters. “There must’ve been thousands of guys here, but they disappeared almost as soon as they showed up.” She noted that once Ms. Rogers had finished drinking her shake, the throngs of youths quickly dissipated, leaving behind extensive damage to front lawns, road signs, and parked cars. At least six residents were delayed by the crowd on their way to work.

“We never see anything like this,” said Jamal Watts, who was unable to get to the hospital where he works on time. “It’s supposed to be a quiet street – I mean, that’s why our families chose to live here. It’s a quiet neighborhood in general. I never expected to have to push through such a crowd of people just to get off my street.”

Residents of Fairborn Avenue are considering the measures to take against Ms. Rogers, or perhaps against the Rogers family as a whole, but are uncertain as to their options.

“It’s not really clear what recourse the neighbors have, legal or otherwise,” says property law expert Sol Liss. “The phenomenon of milkshakes attracting throngs of young male visitors to an enclosed suburban property is certainly documented as far back as 2004, but has never been subject to court attention,” he explained. “In fact I’d wager it’s the same incident being cited over and over again, and not a genuine trend that anyone could be expected to consider before making a milkshake.”

    • I don’t even remember that one.

      Or what I had for breakfast this morning. Did I even have breakfast? What day is it? Oh, the war ended? Hm. Wonder what they did with the Kaiser.

      • The Kaiser is currently holding together two slices of ham, some melted swiss, mustard, and some shredded cabbage. He’s on a roll.

  4. Thanks for the laugh. Some songs are just so silly and senseless that need attention .. and sarcasm. Nicely done!

  16. In a comment later made by Ms Rogers, she stated that she could teach us how to replicate this phenomenon, but she would have to expect monetary reciprocation.

  23. Reblogged on bipolaronfire.com. Such a powerfully distressing incident must be dealt with at every level. How many milkshakes will it take?

  24. A worrying phenomenon. I recall a similar case at my younger brother’s all boys school when a young and very hot female mentor group leader was hired. From that point on, attendance at her group’s meetings went up to full attendance. This meant that boys were not wasting time kicking coke cans or hanging out at the lockers. You just can’t have things like that going on.

    • As I recalled, back in about 1984 a certain Edward Van Halen documented such an incident, noting the rise in average kinetic energy associated with the presence of the educator.
