Saturday Morning Confusion!

When you look at the government and say to yourself; "What are they going to do next?" it doesn't take long to come up with an answer.

The latest technology being used to keep us in a constant state of confusion and apprehension just might be the "Stink-Bomb" and "The Gay Bomb."

From deep within the files of the C.I.A., your fearless investigative reporter has come up with a startling piece of news.

Under a hush, hush, top secret contract with N.S.A. and other defense organizations, the U.S. army is attempting to develop a chemical weapon that will give different ethnic and ideological groups a distinct "smell".

For example, it could genetically produce a certain "smell" that would be secreted from ethnic Chinese, or Blacks or East Indians or even people from Iowa.

There would also be certain odors that can be chemically introduced through food or by aerosols into other groups such as foreign religious organizations or ideological groups.

The Army proposal specifically calls for the "preparation of an 'odor index' to match known disagreeable odors to a specific culture, political/religious group or geographical region."

(If these smells are produced in such a way as to be "unpleasant" to us then this would be one of the easiest ways to promote differences between disparate groups and produce an "Us vs Them" mentality ..)

This "unpleasant smell" plus a certain amount of propaganda, would then be more than enough to cause a population to rise-up against a targeted group and make the militariese job so much easier!

On top of the "Stink-Bomb," the army is also testing a "Gay-Bomb" that would chemically attack foot soldiers and turn them "Gay."

They would immediately lose all desire to fight a be easy pickings for our troops. (The only hazard is having some of "our" guys going over to the "enemy," but I'm sure that this problem can be addressed.)

The idea for the "Gay-Bomb was first discussed after it was announced the Kim Jong-ill and his North Korean scientists had developed a "Nude_Bomb" for use in any regional conflicts in the Far East. (The thinking behind this being that naked soldiers would lose the will to fight!)

Kim Jong-ill, seen relaxing after a recent successful test of North Korea's "Nude Bomb!"

The Baby Face of Hate!

GUEST POST: MEMRI releases an astonishing example of the "true Muslim" faith. By David Tell;

IF THERE WERE JUSTICE in the universe, the Middle East Media Research Institute would already have been awarded some kind of special-achievement Pulitzer Prize.

MEMRI has pioneered the careful translation, and dissemination to European and American audiences, of print and broadcast news sources in the Arab world.

The group's work now pops up everywhere; here in the States, hardly a week goes by when some major daily or cable news show doesn't make use of a MEMRI translation.

And the cumulative effect of such translations is--or ought to be, at least--roughly analogous to the body blow struck against European philo-communism by the first Western publication of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's novels in the 1960s.

Here, really for the first time, non-Arabic speaking Westerners are being given a direct, first-person look into a previously unseen gulag.

Only this time there is no barbed wire, the prisoners all serve by choice, and the anti-Semitism is no longer ancillary but central, basic, and paramount.

It turns out that the Islamic Middle East, just as the Israelis have been begging us for years to figure out, has got itself trapped in a deep, deep swamp of near-psychotic Jew hatred.

Yesterday morning at the National Press Club here in Washington, MEMRI held a briefing on Arabic-language media coverage of "martyrdom and suicide bombers."

Along with all the usual, scrupulously documented newspaper translations, the group also screened an eye-opening videotape compilation (with English subtitles) of recent broadcasts on something called Iqraa Television.

Iqraa is one of the global satellite channels packaged by the Arab Radio and Television Network (ART), a Saudi-based company with transmission facilities in Italy, which describes itself as "the leading producer of premium Arabic family programming and entertainment worldwide."

Iqraa is ART's effort to provide "a focused insight into the teachings of the Quran" to "intellectual, elite, and conservative Islamic markets." It is widely watched. And it is hair-raisingly insane.

The April 25, 2002 interview with Prof. 'Adel Sadeq, head of the psychiatry faculty at 'Ein Shams University in Cairo, for example.

Professor Sadeq beams with glee as he explains how Western civilization "has no concepts such as self-sacrifice and honor," which is why Americans fail to understand that the suicide bomber experiences "the height of ecstasy and happiness" just at the moment when, "ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, and then he presses the button to blow himself up."

Big smile!

Then there's the May 9, 2002, program on "discipline in the family," featuring one Jasem Al-Mutawah, an "expert on family matters," who patiently describes to his viewers where on her body, how severely, with what weapon, and under what circumstances a man should beat his wife.

And, most harrowing of all, perhaps, especially if you have kids of your own, there is the May 7, 2002 edition of "Muslim Woman Magazine," hosted by Doaa 'Amer, a soft spoken, highly polished anchorlady who might just as well be Joan Lunden or Katie Couric--except that she's wearing a body-length robe.

And also that she's a monster.

Ms. 'Amer begins as follows:

"Our report today will be a little different, because our guest is a girl, a Muslim girl, but a true Muslim.

Allah willing, may our God give us the strength to educate our children the same way, so that the next generation will turn out to be true Muslims who understand that they are Muslims and know who their enemies are.

This girl will introduce herself immediately.

She is the daughter of my sister in faith and of the artist, Wagdi Al-Arabi. Her name is Basmallah and we will ask her as well."

The camera then begins a low pan downward and to the right as Ms. 'Amer offers a "peace be unto you" welcome to her guest.

Who turns out to be . . . a toddler.

Toddler: "Allah's mercy and blessing upon you."

'Amer: "What's your name?"

Toddler: "Basmallah"

'Amer: "Basmallah, how old are you?"

Toddler: "Three and a half."

'Amer: "Are you a Muslim?"

Toddler: "Yes."

'Amer: "Basmallah, are you familiar with the Jews?"

Toddler: "Yes."

'Amer: "Do you like them?"

Toddler: "No."

'Amer: "Why don't you like them?"

Toddler: "Because . . ."

'Amer: "Because they are what?"

Toddler: "They're apes and pigs."

'Amer: "Because they are apes and pigs. Who said they are so?"

Toddler: "Our God."

'Amer: "Where did he say this?"

Toddler: "In the Koran."

'Amer: "Right, he said that about them in the Koran. Okay, Basmallah, what are the Jews doing?"

Toddler: "The Pepsi company."

'Amer: [Approving laughter.] "You also know about the boycott,
Basmallah? Did they love our master, Muhammad?"

Toddler: "No."

'Amer: "No. What did the Jews do to him?"

Toddler: [Pauses, struggling for the right answer.] "The Prophet Muhammad killed someone . . . "

'Amer: "Obviously, our master Muhammad was strong and could have killed them. All right, you know the traditions about the Jews and what they did to the Prophet Muhammad?"

Toddler: [Mumbled assent.]

'Amer: "Is there a story you know?

Toddler: "Yes, the story about the Jewish woman."

'Amer: "The Jewish woman? What did she do to our master, the Prophet Muhammad?"

Toddler: "The Jewish woman?"

'Amer: "Yes."

Toddler: There was a Jewish woman who invited the Prophet and his friends. When he asked her, "Did you put poison (in my food)?" she said to him, "Yes." he asked her, "Why did you do this?" and she replied, "If you are a liar you will die and Allah will not protect you; if you speak the truth Allah will protect you."

'Amer: "And our God protected the Prophet Muhammad, of course."

Toddler: And he said to his friends, "I will kill this lady."

'Amer: "Of course, because she put poison in his food, this Jewess."

Toddler: "Oh."

'Amer: [Speaking directly into the camera.] "Basmallah, Allah be praised, Basmallah, Allah be praised. May our God bless her. No one could wish Allah could give him a more believing girl than she.

May Allah bless her and her father and mother. The next generation of children must be true Muslims. We must educate them now while they are still children so that they will grow up to be true Muslims.

New help line here on "Perspective"

Aside from using this blog as an outlet for my own rants and raves, I find more and more people writing me for help with their own problems.

As a public service I am going to start an occasional "help line" for anyone who has a problem they don't seem to be able to come to terms with themselves!

Here is the first;

Dear Allan;
The other day I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual.
I hadn’t gone a hundred yards down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt.
I walked back home get my husbands help but when I got there, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
He was parading in front of the bedroom mirror dressed in my underwear and high-heeled shoes.
He was also wearing my makeup.
A am 32 and my husband is 34. We have been married for 12 years.
When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he had dressed up in my lingerie because he couldn’t find any of his own underwear.
However, when I asked him about the makeup, he broke down and admitted that he has been wearing my clothes for the last six months.
I told him it had to stop immediately or I would leave him.
My husband was made redundant from his job six month ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless.
I love him very much, but since this incident he has become very distant and I don’t feel I can get through to him any more.
Please, can you help?
Mrs. B. Toronto

Dear Mrs. B
A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults in the engine.
Naturally, I assume that the car has gas so start by checking that the fuel filter is not plugged. If this is clear then check for a spark to the spark plugs.
If these don’t work take it to a local garage as the problem is probably more complicated.

Your “ever helpful” scribe;
Allan W Janssen

(Oh, by the way, as for your husband's cross-dressing, normally I wouldn’t worry about it too much, but from the picture you sent, it seems that his sense of fashion is terrible. Invite a few gay friends over to help him out, otherwise you might not want to be seen with him in public!)

New group for those who renounce Islam!

A new organisation, representing former Muslims who fear for their lives because they have renounced their faith, is to be launched at England tomorrow.

The Council of ex-Muslims of Britain plans to speak out against Islamic states that still punish Muslim apostates with death under Sharia law.

It also aims to become the voice of non-religious ex-Muslims who do not want to be represented by “regressive” umbrella groups such as the Muslim Council of Britain.

The group states that Islam has all the characteristics of a Cult.

One characteristic of destructive cults is that they make it difficult or impossible for people to leave the group. Those who do leave are subjected to false claims, hate- and harassment activities, or even death.

The council is being headed by Maryam Namazie, an outspoken human rights activist, following the formation of similar branches across Europe. Miss Namazie, a Left-wing feminist who was awarded the title of “Secularist of the Year” in 2005, has herself faced death threats.

In Islam, apostasy is called ridda (turning back) and it is considered by Muslims to be a profound insult to God, which deserves harsh punishment.

The nature of the punishment, however, provokes passionate debate between scholars, with most believing that it should attract the death penalty for men and life imprisonment for women.

Apostasy is punishable by death in a number of countries, including Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, Sudan and Afghanistan.

In other parts of the world they can be shunned by family and friends.

Last year Abdul Rahman, an Afghan convert from Islam to Christianity, attracted international attention after prosecutors called for his death.

However, under heavy pressure from foreign governments, the Afghan authorities declared him unfit to stand trial and released him.

Miss Namazie, who was forced to flee her native Iran, said: “We are establishing the alternative to the likes of the Muslim Council of Britain because we don’t think people should be pigeonholed as Muslims or deemed to be represented by regressive organisations like the MCB.

She added: ‘’We are quite certain we represent a majority in Europe and a vast secular and humanist protest movement in countries like Iran.”

She said the new Council, the launch of which is being sponsored by the British Humanist Association and the National Secular Society, will start with a membership of 25 British ex-Muslims who are prepared to be named and pictured publicly.

Ambulance for the fat a Calgary first!

Calgary paramedics are now driving the first ambulance in Canada specifically designed for fat patients.

The ambulance can accommodate people weighing up to 1,000 pounds, so obese patients don't have to be reluctant about calling for medical help, said Grant Theirren, the superintendent of special operations for Emergency Medical Services.

"We encourage everybody to call 911 regardless of their weight and situation," he said. "We have the tools to make things easier, to keep patient dignity, and offer them the professional service that every other patient has exposure to."

The upgrades to the ambulance include a specially designed air mattress that is inflated beneath the patient, making transfer to a widened stretcher easier and safer. A remote lift system then gently raises the stretcher into the ambulance.

Paul Lapointe, a public education officer with EMS, said the ambulance, refitted at a cost of $30,000, should cut down injuries among paramedics transferring obese patients.

Only in America!

Only in America, the latest fad is...Diaper Harness for Doggies!

The STA-ON diaper harness is used to keep diapers on dogs, whether young puppies, untrained adult dogs, or elderly incontinent dogs.

The idea is the invention of Dorrie Krenkel, who grew tired of diapers that kept falling off of her dachshund, Bucky.

So, if you're tired of picking up after "Poopsie" here is the answer!

The harness is intended to work with babies' diapers (you just poke a hole to pull the tail through), and you can get the harness in a variety of colors. They sell for $12.95 for the smallest size to $16.95 for the largest.

They said WHAT!

I don't know whether it's just my warped mind or if someone at the advertising agency that produced this commercial has an even more twisted mind than mine!

There is a public service announcement on T.V. to conserve energy and the gist of the message is that we should turn off the lights when they are not being used.

Good, but over the talking they flash a series of (subliminal) messages to "flick off" the lights.

These last on the screen for about 1/3 of a second and are repeated about four or five times in a row.

The only problem is that the message is in capital letters and what you SEE is this message.... FLlCK OFF..... FLlCK OFF ..... FLlCK OFF! (only when you see it for a third of a second that's not what you see.... see!)

Now, is it just me, or are there nefarious forces out there bent on corrupting the unsuspecting. After all, we wouldn't want Granny to suddenly get upset! Would we? (Don't kid yourself, Granny can probably out-swear and out-drink most of you young whipper-snappers!)

Blinded by the light!

A 17-year-old Benoni girl - who claims to have seen the mother of Jesus - is telling her pilgrims to look into the setting sun to witness a beautiful miracle.

But a renowned medical doctor, with a lifetime of experience, says people should never look into the sun with the naked eye.
Francesca Zackey speaks in tongues and she believes that by looking into the burning star, believers will see it spin while an amazing kaleidoscope of colours pour out around the Virgin Mary herself.
(To protect delicate eyes against the hydrogen giant, Mary places a protective shield in front of the sun.)
Meanwhile, the reality of the situation is that dozens of people have lost their eyesight due to the proclamations of this wayward "Prophet!"


A notice was issued by the local authorities;

Faith, for so many people, is a wonderful thing. It gives hope and comfort, and brings people together. But if it is abused by fanatics, it mutates into an ugly weapon that can be used to spark atrocities.

People argue that, with free will, people have choices. If told to jump into a fire, surely common sense will prevail, they say. But this is an underestimation of religious indoctrination.

Yes, people have choices. But sometimes belief is too strong.

With hundreds of people flocking to see Francesca each day, the church must take serious note of the latest developments and put a stop to it!

Once again, Religion is a great thing to provide people with a sense of comfort, especially in times of trouble, but for God's sake us a bit of common sense.

It should be obvious to anyone that (1) the World has got to be a lot older than 7,000 years since creation and (2) you just can't look right into the sun without suffering consequences. Period! (And I don't care what Manfred Mann says!)

I hate to say this, but losing your eyesight for doing something stupid, is one hell of a steep price to pay!

Jerry hits the nail on the head!

Yes, my loyal and faithful readers, your humble author has given a long and hard look at some of the dialogue generated on these pages.

It's good to see that everyone has definite opinions on the problems of the world, and some of the strange things we are subjected to in our daily lives.

Over the past few months we have discussed great topics on religion and politics, as well as heart-rending articles on the human condition and tales of valour and courage.

We have explored the noble sacrifices made by the few and the thoughtlessness displayed by the many.

We touched on subjects of human achievement and failure as well as showing the heights of altruism and the depths of debauchery.

Amidst all tales of the human condition we have addressed on these pages, it seems somehow fitting that the one article which generated the most response, by far, is the story of the woman who tore off one of her boyfriends testicles! (Believe me, you don't want her mad at you!)

So say what you want about people like Jerry Springer and Chuck Barris, [The Gong Show]..... they seem to have a good handle on what is important to audiences! (And culture ain't one of 'em!)

Travolta disapproves of anti-depressants!

John Travolta says his thinking is in line with fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise, who has publicly defended the religion’s stance against psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry.

John Travolta was interviewed in W's July issue and like fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise, Travolta told the magazine that he is against psychiatric medication.

Now, this is all fine and dandy, but begs the question......who gives a shit!

He thought it was safe to go in the water again!

Just when Salman Rushdie thought it was safe to go in the water again, an International row over his Knighthood this past weekend escalated after Islamic extremists placed a £80,000 bounty on the writer’s head.

The British Government expressed its “deep concern” over reported comments by one of Pakistan’s ministers which suggested Rushdie’s knighthood could justify suicide attacks.

The announcement comes amid continuing protests in Pakistan over the awarding of the honour to the controversial author.

Earlier in the day Pakistan’s government summoned Britain’s high commissioner in Islamabad for talks on the escalating row.

Salman Rushdie with his wife Padma. Rushdie was awarded an OBE this weekend, but Pakistan has demanded it be withdrawn.

To show you how much anti-Muslim sentiment is prevalent in England, one of the countries top newspapers wrote this article;

What Muslims Should Be Outraged Over:

Throughout its history, Islam has been a religion of hatred.

Spread by the sword, Islam means ’submission,’ and submission is what Muslims demand — submission to a religion whose followers maim, kill, commit acts of terrorism and threaten harm whenever they feel slighted.

When will we see Muslims take to the streets to protest the despicable acts of Muslim terrorists?

Our view: Europeans - and indeed free people everywhere - should stand up against the Islamic oppression.

Europe is not Islamic, and Europe should not sacrifice its culture to a people who - in the name of Islam - use any and every opportunity to stage violent protests, issue death threaths, destroy property, murder, and commit other acts of terrorism.

Killer of abortion doctor gets life sentence!

I said a few days ago that religion and beliefs are areas of psychology that defy rational thought and produce tunnel vision in it's adherents.

Here is another case of twisted thinking that can change a man's perception of reality.

The long and short of it is that somehow he got it into his head that killing someone would save lives. (How screwed up is that!)

James Kopp's sentencing in a federal courtroom in Buffalo closed a case that began nearly nine years ago, when Dr. Barnett Slepian was killed in the kitchen of his suburban Amherst home by a sniper.

Dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit and holding what appeared to be a yellow, plastic rosary, he showed no emotion as he was sentenced to life in prison, plus 10 years for the weapons charge. He also was ordered to pay $2.6 million US in restitution to the Slepians.
"It's clear to me you've justified in your own mind the murder of Dr. Slepian," the judge told Kopp.
(Gee, this guy looks so normal!)

Slepian's widow read from a statement that she said was on behalf of her and her four sons, all of whom were sitting in the courtroom's front row.

"I want Mr. Kopp to go to jail knowing he killed a wonderful man, a kind and compassionate brother, father, husband and friend," said Lynne Slepian, who did not look at Kopp as she addressed the court from a podium. "This was the man that I was supposed to grow old with."

Kopp, nicknamed "Atomic Dog," had been arrested more than 100 times prior to the killing, for protesting abortion.

He is suspected in the non-fatal shootings of four other doctors, three in Canada and one in Rochester, N.Y.

He is charged with attempted murder in the 1995 shooting of Dr. Hugh Short in Ancaster, Ontario.

"We should all be very, very afraid that this sick mentality of James Kopp and his followers still exists and is tolerated by so many," Lynne Slepian said. "There are too many people who believe that what James Kopp did was not a crime, but a calling."

In his own letter to the judge, Kopp wrote that several children are alive today because of Slepian's death.

After shooting Slepian, Kopp fled to Mexico, Ireland and finally France, where he was captured in March 2001. He was added to the FBI's list of the Ten Most Wanted fugitives in June 1999.

America Is a Force for Good!

In spite of what the perception of the United States is amongst some countries, and contrary to the awful headlines, the United States is steadily making the world a better place in which to live!

Guest Post BY MARGARET WENTE; in the Canadian Edition of Readers Digest!

These are grim times for America’s reputation. It is the most hated country in the world.

It’s widely regarded as, at best, a bully whose recklessness and arrogance have drained its moral authority—and, at worst, an evil empire that flouts international law and insists on imposing its will on everybody else. Its president is a dim-witted cowboy, its politics are poisonous, and its people are fat, uncultured spendthrifts.

But contrary to the awful headlines and the international disdain, the United States is steadily making the world a spectacularly better place to live!

If you want to meet people who actually like America, try a Starbucks in Beijing.

Beijing has almost as many Starbucks as Seattle, and they’re crammed with young, global-minded Chinese people eager to practise their English.

English is taught in many schools there, because it’s the language of science, commerce—and the future. Chinese officials believe their educational system, in which students don’t dare challenge the teacher, is too rigid.

They’re desperately trying to change it so that students will become more creative—like the Americans.

Off India’s southern coast of Kerala, where fishermen have been plying their trade for centuries, a new technology is changing lives.

Cellphones allow fishermen to check the market price for their catch at different ports, so they can net the best deal. Some fishermen have doubled their profit.

The cellphone grew out of the fertile brain of Martin Cooper, an American who worked for Motorola. It was based on technology developed over decades by American scientists.

Today, millions of people in rural economies around the globe have leap-frogged landlines entirely and gone cellular. American know-how has improved their lives and connected them to the world.

The Chinese are crazy about cellphones, and theirs are more advanced than ours. Now they’re manufacturing them and selling back to us. That’s globalization, the great liberalization of trade, which we owe to the leadership of the United States.

“Thanks to the dynamism of international capitalism, all but the poorest people in the world have significantly more purchasing power than their grandfathers dared dream of,” writes British historian Niall Ferguson.

Everybody knows the United States is the engine of the world economy—it produces about 30 percent of the world’s gross domestic product—but not everybody knows it’s the biggest customer by far of goods from developing nations.

If trade ever slowed or stopped, those nations would be devastated.

The historic gulf between the haves and the have-nots is narrowing because of American economic liberalism. As Kofi Annan, UN Secretary-General, put it, “The poor are poor not because of too much globalization but because of too little.”

These days the Unites States is reviled for its military adventurism, which has brought it to such grief in Iraq. But it’s also the world’s policeman, and very few nations want it to give up that role.

We need a “globocop,” and for now and the foreseeable future, the U.S.—not the UN—is it.

It’s U.S. military power that helps keep order in the world. Overwhelming U.S. might is what keeps the oil flowing. Oil is the lifeblood of every nation’s economy, and without it they’d collapse.

America has waded into trouble spots—Bosnia, Kosovo, Haiti, Somalia—where others fear to tread; not because it had anything to gain, but because it wanted to restore order and get out.

During the Bosnian slaughter in the 1990s, the UN merely looked on; the United States had the moral courage to act.
It has also taken the lead in combatting the greatest threat the world faces today: the spread of nuclear weapons to rogue states and terrorists.

Meantime, American-style democracy is spreading—look at Central and South America.

In one generation, that continent has undergone an astonishing transformation from dictatorships to democracies.

Democracy (even if only in name) is now the form of government preferred by most people in the world. People today aren’t just richer than their grandfathers, they have more political power, too.

But perhaps the greatest gift from the United States to the rest of the world is its enormous dynamism, inventive genius and human talent.

From cellphones and the mainstreaming of the Internet to life-saving medicines, America is the motherlode of transformative technologies.

It attracts and nurtures the best in nearly every field, turning knowledge into new products and processes that enrich our lives.

It’s the place where a geeky university dropout became the richest man on the globe and then decided to give US$25 billion away.

Bill Gates’s capitalist-style philanthropy promises to transform the world as much as his software has. He is focused on international assistance to the very poorest.

At the top of his ambitious list is a cure for malaria, the scourge that kills one million people every year. A generation from now, maybe sooner, countless kids across Africa will be alive—and healthier—because of Gates.

These stories about America are not fashionable. But their truths are enduring. Of course America can be a reckless, blundering bully.

But if you add up the pluses and minuses, you might well conclude that what the world needs is not less America but more.

Stupid is as stupid does!

Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza are all in a state of virtual civil war.
Aided by Syria/Iran on one side and the United States on the other, Hamas and Fatah have escalated their sectarian fighting to unprecedented levels and the conflict has the potential to spread to other parts of the Middle-East as well.

Israel has been on high alert for the last 60 years or so against Arab aggression and repeated calls to wipe them off the map.

But, if things continue the way they are going, all the Israeli's will have to do in the next little while is sit back and laugh their asses off while the Arabs self-destruct!!!

Not much from that area can surprise me anymore!

Sunday Morning Funnies!

Food Fight!

Food fights are growing in popularity and intensity following an incident at a high school in Montreal that ended with two students facing assault charges, police say.

Students are using the Internet to prepare for the fights, and then posting videos on websites such as YouTube, Montreal police said Thursday.

Police say Wednesday's incident was the third food fight at a Montreal-area high school in a week.

Two students ages 14 and 16 are expected to be summoned to court in the coming days to face charges for their role in the food fight.

Police said the fight got out of hand and turned into a mini-riot that left two school officials and a police officer with minor injuries.

More than 20 officers were needed to quell the fight and 12 people were charged with a smorgasbord of offenses!.

Lucky Drink!

A man wakes up with a huge hangover.
He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.
He sees his clothing in front of him, all cleaned and pressed. He looks around the room and sees it is in perfect order. So is the rest of the house.
He takes his aspirins and notices a note on the table:
Honey,
Breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping.
I Love you.

He goes to the kitchen. Sure enough, a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper await him.
His son is also at the table, eating.
The man asks, "Son, what happened last night?"
His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 a.m., drunk and
delirious. You broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you walked into the door."
Confused, the man asks, "So why is everything in order and so clean, with breakfast on the table waiting for me?"
His son replies, "Oh that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off you shouted,
"LADY, GET YOUR DAMNED HANDS OFF OF ME! I'M MARRIED!"

Country Boys!

Two country boys were sitting on their porch one hot august day.

Their dog was in the dirt driveway just licking his testicles when one country boy says to the other, "I wish I could do that!"

His friend looks at him and responds..."I wouldn’t do that, the dog would bite you!"

At the tone…….

An old drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his bar-room buddies real late one night and led the way to his bedroom where there was a big, really big, brass gong.

"What's that big brass gong for?" one of the guests inquired.

"It's not a gong. It's a ta-ta-ta-talking clock," the drunk stammered.

"A talking clock? No. Seriously?" asked the astonished friend.

"Yup," replied the drunk. "Ju-Ju-Just listen," the drunk replied as he picked up the mallet, gave it an ear-shattering clash and stepped back.

The three stood looking at one another for a moment. Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, "You asshole ... it's ten past three in the morning!

Please......

A drunk walks into a fish and chips shop and says 'Can I have a fucking bag of chips'....
The owner replies 'PARDON!'.....
The drunk staggers and then says 'Look just give me a fucking bag of chips'.....
The owner then says 'You'll get no chips with language like that!...
Come round here and I'll show you how to order a bag of chips'.....
So the drunk staggers round the other side of the counter and the chip shop owner leaves the shop then returns and says to the drunk 'Can I have a bag of chips PLEASE'....

The drunk replies; 'Hey, you wouldn't serve me earlier, so Fuck off!''
