At Least He's Exercising

Tallahassee police got an interesting call September 13th about a naked man roaming the streets. Now, I know what you're thinking, "It's Florida, it's not too cold," which is true. But still, walking in the nude is something that is not smiled upon - even in the Sunshine State - so the police had to investigate.

They found the 40-year-old man was not just walking in the nude, but he was also walking his dog - which makes a whole lot more sense. I mean the dog is naked - why make him feel like the odd man out, right? I think this principal was actually on an episode of The Dog Whisperer.

Anyway, when police approached the man and asked him why he was out and about he replied, "Allah told me to watch a Bruce Willis movie and walk the dog." That proves it - this man is not crazy.

What really did this man in was that he got belligerent and refused to obey the commands of the police officers so they had to taser him because "It was the only way we could subdue him without having to hurt him." (emphasis added) . . . . Huh. I guess I've always misunderstood how painful tasering is!

You can find the full story here.

Tag Sidestep

Well, I was tagged by Lobbie. This vexes me, though, because I don't normally do tags, forwards, chain mail, or the like. However, Lobbie is a friend of mine. . .

How about a compromise? Instead of six random stories about myself, I'll tell six random stories about others? Kosher?

So here are six funny/random/stupid news stories that I feel are worthy of mention:

1. This'll teach 'em to not pay on time!

2. Hang on, Lady! We go for a ride!

3. She said her name was Polly - and that she needed a cracker!

4. Call me ANTI-Smokey the Bear!

5. It's not a trick. It's my illusion!

6. Well I didn't know how HE signed his signature. . .
