Astros Vendor Dumped For, Well…Nevermind

As if the Houston Astros needed any more problems…there's this.

A snow cone vendor at Minute Maid Park was fired after, wait for it, he was recorded in the bathroom, using the toilet and placing a tray of his wares on the stall floor next to him.

"I couldn’t believe what I was seeing," the fan who took the video told Houston's KPRC. "This guy is taking a dump. There’s no doubt about it. What sane person could possibly think, yeah this is a good idea. I’ll just put the food that I’m about to sell on the floor."

Naturally, new team president Reid Ryan issued a statement.

The Astros were notified immediately by our partner ARAMARK of the incident involving a vendor on Monday night. We commend the swift reaction displayed by ARAMARK of terminating the employee immediately upon learning of the incident that evening.

I'll let you make all the poopcicles and lemon ice references.  I'm just going to continue to not buy concessions from vendors walking the aisles.
