Let’s be honest here, is anyone surprised this story came out of the City of Brotherly Love? This is the same city where baseball fans intentionally puke on each other and boo Santa Claus at halftime. Just a classy bunch of people. Getting day drunk, hitting a pole, stripping to salsa music and publicly spreading your asshole in an intersection is probably one of the lesser crazy things I’ve heard out of Philly.
