This joke went over about as well as pineapple on pizza. Here's 'Crappy News' for Wednesday, December 20th, 2017.

Cicero, NY- A cow led police on a slow-speed chase.

Officer John Cottrell was in his patrol car driving behind the bovine on Sunday night.

The cow was wandering in the middle of the road and wouldn't let the car pass. Officer Cottrell joked that the cow was "failing to comply" which led to the pursuit. The Cicero Police Department posted a video of the event on Facebook, which has been viewed more than 10,000 times.

The cow was eventually captured and returned to its owner. [UPI]

Why didn't he just yell at the cow to moooooooove over?

The four-story-tall tree, which cost approximately $40,000 and is the focal point of Mesa's yearly Christmas celebration, was destroyed last Wednesday.

Police say 34-year-old Samuel Johnson was found nearby and allegedly admitted to setting the “Merry Main Christmas Tree” on fire with a book of matches.  Johnson was arrested on suspicion of arson and felony criminal damage. City officials say they’re trying to quickly find a replacement tree to erect in time for the rest of the holiday season. [Time]

Five days to find a 40-foot tree? That would be a Christmas miracle.

Stafford, VA- A Pizza Hut employee was fired for writing a--saucy--joke on the inside of a delivery box.


The unnamed customer claims her 12-and-15-year-old sons placed an online pizza order and asked for a joke to be written on the box.

When the pizza arrived the kids got their wish, but the riddle wasn't exactly family-friendly:

“What do a pizza delivery driver and a gynecologist have in common?” (I'll let you Google that one).

Naturally, the customer complained and the employee was fired. As a result, the mom has been cyber-bullied on social media and several people took to the restaurant’s Facebook page to demand #JusticeForPizzaGirl. After all, the employee simply granted a request. [WJLA-TV / Huffington Post]

I hope there wasn't any pineapple on that pizza. That would be a way to REALLY get the Internet riled up.
