Then Count, Count got in trouble when he said, "1, 2, 3, 4 and I’d say about a 34B." … The health issues with the egg companies have become so bad that when a member of congress told one egg company executive, he had egg on his face, he ran from the hearing room screaming, "Get it off me. Get it off me." … A Connecticut state fire marshal is in trouble because he paid $15 for a lap dance at a New Haven strip club when he went to serve a city tax warrant.
