It’s been a couple of years since this headline amazed the world:
Amazed us because I think it’s fair to say that pineapple juice was the odds-on favourite to be the cause of the Cowdenbeath mystery puddle.
Well. At that time, at least.
Of course, that was quickly proven not to be the case at all, and we were all left feeling rather foolish and embarrassed for ever thinking that it was. Personally speaking, I learnt a lot from the whole episode, and I certainly won’t be rushing to pin the blame for unexpectedly appearing small pools of liquid on tropical juices in future.
And that was a lesson that was recently backed up by the infamous Guava Pond incident in Caledon.
