    Default Sorry California...I've been WAY too critical!

    So here's my apology. There's more than the 'left coast' that have a lock on the all the weirdos in this country.

    UB


    BURGLARY IN FLORIDA

    When southern Florida resident Nathan Radlich's house was burglarized recently, thieves ignored his wide screen plasma TV, his VCR, and even left his Rolex watch.

    What they did take, however, was a white box filled with a grayish-white powder. (That's the way the police report described it.) A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said that it looked similar to high grade cocaine, and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big time.

    Later, Nathan stood in front of numerous TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars: 'Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago.'

    The next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a local drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The white box was there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained. Scotch taped to the box was this note which said: "Hoochie sold us the bogus blow so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day."

    And I thought California was the land of fruits and nuts.

    Let this be a lesson to the low information crowd like Uncle Buck, every time you receive an email that even a fourth grader can tell is a fabrication take 30 seconds to think about it before posting it as a new thread.

    UB - THANKS for the laugh - keep on keeping on -

    In our local paper there is a column on the back page called "News of the Weird". It has become a must read in our household. It makes your post not require a Snopes review. But when you have folks bottom feeding for credibility on an internet site .

    You have to remember one thing about this situation when comparing it to California. The best grass would more than likely be located in California. The best coke however would most likely come from Florida. Since these DA people were looking to put things up there nose it stands to reason their thinking.

    The mere idea of it being a joke would never enter what simple mind those loons have. Since they are 'wed' to the socialists of Snopes, that's their alter for making sure the propaganda they live on is leftist trustworthy.

    Every time they do a Snopes check on my posts, it's just more fodder for another laugh at their attempts at 'discovering something that had passed me by'. As the saying goes..."You just can't make this up". It is indeed enlightening to feed the guppies.
