Nate Burleson Suffers Broken Arm in Pizza-Related Crash
Washington Post ^ | September 24 | Cindy Boren

Posted on 09/24/2013 4:39:44 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson suffered a broken arm in an early-morning auto accident in Farmington Hills, Mich.

SNIP

The “object?” Pizza.

“It was actually a whole pizza,” Shaw told ESPN. “He had purchased two whole pizzas, and one was sitting on top of the other one, and I guess when he was driving one of them was slipping off, and he was reaching over to push it back onto the seat and overcorrected and hit the median wall.”

I remember when Marino caused an accident after spilling coffee in his lap while still with the Dolphins. Obviously, the coffee wasn’t too hot, considering he fathered a child from an affair in 2005.

You’d think he’d be more aware of the out-of-bounds.

If he still played for the Vikequeens he would have done while drunk and texting.

Outlaw pizzas now. They will kill or maim you.

Do you know how many people are killed or injured by pizzas during the year? Well, neither do it, but it has got to be a lot since they are not “regulated” by the Constitution, but should be.

“A well regulated pizza is a harmless pizza” says The Wicked Witch of the West, Kathleen Sebelius (Dept. of H&HS - Hype and Horseshit).

Private citizens have no right to pizzas unless delivered by the US Govt, just to insure their safety and quality. Can’t leave it to the pizza business to do that. Too irresponsible. “We must regulate so that you don’t regurgitate”. (Again the Wicked Bitch of the West, Sebelius).

Members of the pro-Pizza Eaters Rights Association (PERA) said, in reply to Kathleen Supercilius, “Up yours, Gomer”.

“You’ll take away my cold pizza only after I run out of ammunition and you pry my gun out of my other cold hand”.

Our battle cry, PERA said, is not “Live somewhat free and eat Quiche”. It is “Eat pizza and live free”.

Pizza the Hut has declared war on the White Hut, ObamatheNut and Mrs. ThunderThighs. “It will end with whoever is standing with the last can of tomato paste, and we are loaded for the football season. Bring it on!”

Dominoes said, “He comes that Domino Theory again, and again it is the Reds of Team Obama versus the Red, White and Blue of Team America. We will show them no mercy, plus we give discount coupons to our forces”.

“Take that, Obamites, you Quiche-easting, Latte-lapping, Kelp munching spawn of Dr. Spock and Bella The Red Abzug”.

“Take no prisoners, shoot the wounded, and leave no leftovers”. “Pizza uber alles”. “Quiche - Never!”

I wouldn’t be surprised if the airbag is what broke his arm.

Sucks for Burleson, of course, but hey, maybe Broyles will get more work! He’s on my fantasy team, so it’s all good! =)

I always put the pizza on the front passenger side floor. No where for it go then, or at least if it does I’ve got more to worry about than flying pepperonis.

I wonder how he “celebrated” this accident?
Celebrations are big with him. Even before 1 game with the Lions, he offered to give them lessons on celebrating.
He has been fined for some of his celebrations.

If it was Pizza Papalis, I might just understand. Otherwise, what a waste.

Thanks nickcarraway.
“He had purchased two whole pizzas, and one was sitting on top of the other one, and I guess when he was driving one of them was slipping off, and he was reaching over to push it back onto the seat and overcorrected and hit the median wall.”
Only two pizzas? Clearly Suh wasn't visiting.
