CNN has a weird story out of Portland, OR, in which some guy, described as being "formerly of Boston," approached the mayor and city council during a debate on parking codes with his hand in his pocket - and then pulled out a can of Pepsi that he tried to hand to the mayor:
Portland's somewhat shaken mayor said afterward, "Please, folks, do not do that. For your own safety do not do that, OK?" before quipping, "If this were the Boston City Council, that would have ended differently."
Yes, because if anybody tried that at Boston City Hall, they'd be beaten to a pulp by any number of councilors, all of whom drink only Diet Coke (or water) during meetings. Or maybe the mayor of Portland is an Onion fan.
