Everybody -- and everything, including burgers -- into the pool!

A water park in Dale City, Virginia, got some unwanted pool accessories over the weekend: a heap of fast food and furniture. The vandals started flinging food, trash and furniture into the pool sometime after the last lifeguard left late Friday night -- trespassing, and also violating the Waterworks rule prohibiting "outside food and or beverages."

Park officials said they found multiple hamburger patties (no bun), as well as fries and pretzels in the water. And mysteriously, the water slide had been smeared with mozzarella.

The park was closed while the pool was drained, cleaned and sanitized. Which is the same treatment every digestive track could use after a fast-food meal.
