17.5 Ton Popsicle Floods NYC

This sounds like a sticky mess.

An attempt to erect the world's largest popsicle in a city square ended with a scene straight out of a disaster film, but much stickier.

The 25-foot-tall, 17 1/2-ton popsicle treat of frozen Snapple unexpectedly quickly melted in the midday sun Tuesday, flooding Union Square in downtown Manhattan with pink fluid that sent pedestrians scurrying for higher ground.

Firefighters closed off several streets and used hoses to wash away the sugary goo as the 35,000-pound, Kiwi-Strawberry flavored pop gushed thousands of gallons of liquid.

While that's an ugly mess, it could've been a lot worse.
