Last week, a large alligator damaged a city-owned car driven by Tampa, FL cop Terry Ashe. Two reports were filed:
THE OFFICIAL REPORT
Officer Ashe was driving home in Pasco County when he observed an alligator blocking the roadway. He attempted to use his vehicle to scare it out of the road. The alligator became agitated and bit his bumper causing approximately $500 worth of damage. Report will be routed to City Claims/Risk Management.
I always get a little sad when Halloween’s over. Y’know what helps me chase the blues away, though?
Halloween merchandise liquidation sales.
Any troll-ass motherfuckers wanna test me by saying Parker looks great in his “Jango Fett” helmet? Go on, hotshot, do it, I dare you.
Oh, don’t worry, you won’t get banned. Heck, I won’t even let my pit bull bite you!
I’ll just have him kill you in your sleep.
UPDATE: It has come to light that the fourth sentence in this post is easily misinterpreted. What I’m saying is, I would consider it trolling to act like the prequels are real Star Wars movies. Like if you put on your favorite jazz CD and I was all “turn it up, I love Kenny G!”
Maybe I’m supposed to apologize for my lack of clarity, but whatever, I always thought Eric Burdon made too big a deal out of it.
Getting a lot of complaints about not posting any additional pics of our kitten Biscuit. Still adorable, still cute, still tons o’ fun (good cripes, I can’t convey how much joy she gave us tonight with a simple prop like a paper bag*)...
Still not finding any new videos worth throwing your way for our Morning Music series, so here’s some Halloween-themed weirdness for you to fill the gap…
MORE: Let’s Paint, Exercise, & Blend Drinks! was the very first post at Rumproast back when I just intended this to be a 27-visitors-a-day personal blog. Oops. Happy 2 Years One Month One Day Anniversary to Rumproast.
Not that I actually literally went anywhere, and I’ve been checking in on what’s been going on, but I have been totally out of energy to write anything or even comment much. This is due to the fact that I have been struggling not only to recover from a badly broken, or I should actually say, shattered, ankle but, as a CPA, also keep up with the small avalanche of extended tax returns due October 15 that results in a second busy season for those of us professional number crunchers.
In my mad scramble down the relatively steep slope in front of our cabin to haul her back, I slipped and fell and bent the ankle under me in a very. bad. way. Dislocated in addition to broken, as I later found out. Hey, why do anything half way?
So two surgeries later I have the results for anyone who cares to take a look (squeamish readers alert: the following picture is graphic but definitely not gory or gross - it’s just an x-ray).
A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have. Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.
Ha, ha. Weren’t people stupid 40 years ago? Thank goodness Loving v. Virginia cleared up all that nonsense.
It’s time we face up to the truth. We’re deathly afraid of Sarah Palin.
No, look. Look, I don’t like it either, but it’s too late to deny it. The RealAmerican Palindrones are on to us. They’ve flocked to Amazon’s and Barnes & Noble’s websites in order to gaze in adoration at the picture of the cover of Going Rouge: An American Story, and sing the praises of America’s Savior. And her book. You betcha. Even though they haven’t read it. Also. And they’ve let the world know our shameful secret, damn them:
After reading lots of negative comments about Sarah Palin posted mostly by closed minded liberals I have come to the conclusion that they are really frightened by a strong, decisive woman who has proven herself to be a true conservative.
I’m so ashamed!
In addition, what the lefty-lefts fear is that she appeals to “real” people, unlike Obama and his cronies who are definitely from the “elitist” crowd.
Please, please stop tormenting us!
As much hipe [sic] as the liberals would like to stir up about Sarah, and believe me they won’t stop until after 2012, they can’t admit that she scares them to DEATH.
Oh God, not ALL CAPS! How can we deny anything written in ALL CAPS?
I just can’t figure out how they know. Did they sense our laughter was a ruse to hide the shrieks of fear? Did they detect the quaver in our voices as we mocked that accent or dialect or speech impediment or whatever the Hell that is? And what will happen if they realize that should Sarah Palin win the GOP nomination for PotUS, all the dirty Islahomocommies will run screaming for the Canadian border?
Gosh. I sure hope they don’t find out!
While I’m thinking of it, do NOT check out this horrifying post at Wonkette. You won’t sleep for a week.
Sweet weepin’ Jeebus with a flyswatter, check out this spider crawling up and down the Pope:
I think it crawled over his actual head at one point (damn the AP camera for cutting away). Did he know it was there and thus display a preternatural ability to ignore pests like spiders, roaches, ants and pedophiles? Or would he have shrieked comically, ripped off his silken white beanie and trampled it beneath his red Prada pumps if he had realized an actual spider was on him? I guess we’ll never know.
