While we're fans of harmless things like drive-thru rapping, the "Fire in the Hole" phenomena of people throwing their soft drinks into the drive-thru window (often documented on YouTube) is a classless affair. It's thuggish, abusive, infantile, and potentially dangerous.

Last week, in a hot spinach-based derivation of "Fire in the Hole," a 17-year-old idiot ordered creamed spinach at a Boston Market in Roseville, CA and then threw it on the drive-thru server's face. Seriously, don't do this. The creamed spinach was at a blazing 180 degrees and the employee, a college student, endured second-degree burns on his face and neck.

According to the Sacramento Bee, the 17-year-old, accompanied by his parents, turned himself in to the police, and was booked under "suspicion of committing battery causing great bodily harm."

And for some reason, even though the kid probably permanently disfigured the unsuspecting victim, he was released to his parents' custody. He'll get a stern talking to?
