Subject: Deep Thoughts Weekly - September 8, 2008

 

Good Morning . . .

 

Instead of a Seeing Eye dog, what about a gun? It's cheaper than a dog, plus if you walk around shooting all the time people are going to get out of the way. Cars, too!

 

WHATTAGAME!  Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory . . . . . Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly . . . . . . We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation, with your T-formation . . . . . Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you're wearing the crown . . . . . You're the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, bear down!!!

WEIRD NEWS*

Your Daily Losers

Kody Merrival, 21, was picked up in Iowa City after using a stolen credit card, which worked fine the first time, but then when he used it again, he signed his real name on the receipt, and then when he used it the third time, and the merchant asked for additional ID, he showed 'em his real ID.

 

Patrick Dodenhoff, 39, charged with flashing people on a couple of California beaches, was actually arrested while hiding in the brush at "Pirate's Cove," which is a locally-well-known nude beach. (Seriously.)

 

Lorenzo Knight, 22, on the run from the victim after stealing a camera from a car, tried to hide in a porta-potty, but the victim saw him and tipped it over, (a) sealing him inside and (b) er, shaking up the potty's contents.

 

Two men were badly burned when their car blew up in Anderson, S.C. They were huffing keyboard cleaner and had rolled the windows up to keep out all that noxious fresh air, but then one of the men decided he needed a cigarette.

 

 

As a reminder, my reason for sending this is to help keep communication lines open between friends while hopefully adding a bit of levity to the day.  Back issues are available in the Deep Thoughts section of my website.  Have a great week!
