Shit hits the fan

Dave Matthews Band has finally been fined for shitting all over, and I am not just referring to their horrendous music.

A judge Friday ordered the Dave Matthews Band to pay $200,000 to an environmental fund as settlement in the Illinois attorney general’s case against the band for dumping human waste on a Chicago River tour boat last summer.

Cook County Chancery Division Presiding Judge Dorothy Kinnaird agreed to the settlement, in which the band would pay $200,000 to the state. The money would be placed in a fund for environmental protection and education.

More insanely successful and therefore wealthy knuckleheads should start dumping poo. It’s good for the trees.

    What makes this story even better is that Ben & Jerry’s is just rolling out their newest flavor of ice cream:

    Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies

    I shit you not.

    Wow, that flavor name just fucking smacks of effort. It was kinda cute in a totally stupid way when B&J “corporate in a non corporate way sponsorship” flavors were a play on words, but this is just totally lame.

    I would have loved to have been in on that meeting when some marketing jackass dully said “How bout Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies?” and everyone else thought it was a good idea.

    $200,000 isn’t enough. I vote for a fine that makes it financially impossible for DMB to shit in the river again.
