Nothing Kills a Sweet 16 Like Poop Raining From the Sky!
One thing's for certain: Jacinda Cambray will never forget her Sweet 16 birthday party! She was celebrating with about 40 guests in her family's backyard in Philadelphia when human poop started falling from the sky! One relative explained, "It was brown. It was everywhere. It got on everything!" While it isn't clear where exactly the poop came from, Jacinda's aunt quickly checked her smartphone and found there were five planes flying over their location at the time, spawning a theory that one had illegally unloaded its waste on the party. Fortunately, though party guests were swimming and playing horseshoes, most of the poop landed on a canopy that had been put up just hours earlier to protect visitors in case it rained. Jacinda's stepfather, Joe Cambray, says he washed away most of the waste with a hose, but "everybody was not very happy!"
