What Happens In Vegas, Serves Time In Vegas

Today is shaping up nicely as there has been several stories with outcomes that please me. In Las Vegas, Nevada, O.J. Simpson was sentenced to 15 years in prison with at least six years to be served before the possibility of parole. The parents of Ron Goldman as well as Nicole Simpson's sisters were in the courtroom at the time of decision. The case is expected to be appealed and Simpson's attorney asked for bail while awaiting the appeal, but it was denied by the judge.

A Danish warship captured a Somali pirateship that floundered in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Somalia, They captured the pirates, disarmed them of weapons (inluding grenade launchers) and sunk the ship. The only error that they made was not sinking the pirate vessel with the Somali bastards on board.

Friday has arrived and I'm going to mosey over to AREA 51 and see my pals. Actually, I started "moseying" last night when I received a phone call from my pal Emilio to go to an impromptu poker game with some friends up in Weston. We played there until around 11:30 p.m. and then we went to the cigar club and played poker there until sometime this morning. I have no idea where I'm going this evening, but that's par for the course with me.

The Cat's Ass Trophy (CAT) Award has one nominee from Gary, author of Old Woody's Boomer Page. He nominated Marc E. Dash, of DeKalb Street, Town of Tonawanda, New York, who was charged by police with aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony, following the death of the Shih Tzu puppy named Grace. Dash admitted kicking the dog down the stairs, police reports quoted him as saying, because “. . . it was eyeballing me, you know, looking at me like it didn’t like me.”

Dash told police he stuffed the puppy into a duffel bag and hid it in the trunk of his car. When his girlfriend returned home to her Kenview Avenue apartment, Dash told her the dog had run away. As the girlfriend searched the neighborhood for the dog, a neighbor told her that Dash had been acting suspiciously, removing a duffel bag from his car and then returning to put the duffel in his trunk. The dog’s owner then discovered the puppy in the trunk of her boyfriend’s car. She took the dog into her apartment, but the dog was dead.

Nominations are open for the CAT Award until Monday at noon and can be made by anyone wishing to do so.

Picture Of The Day: Words can't explain how satisfied I feel to see O. J. Simpson go to prison. This arrogant scumbag got away with murder and this time the crime wasn't in Los Angeles county where he was given his last free pass. Although his case is on appeal, it will take at least two years before his appeal will come up. Since bail was denied, he'll spend that time with the rest of the social rejects and street monkeys behind bars. Good luck with Bubba, O.J.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

A father watched his young daughter playing in the garden in their Wyoming ranch. He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was.He thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes. Suddenly, she just stopped and stared at the ground. He went over to her to see what work of God had captured her attention. He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating.

She asked,"Daddy,what are those two spiders doing?" Her father replied, "They're mating." The Little girl said, "What do you call the spider on top?" The father answered, "That's a Daddy Longlegs."

"So, the other one is a Mommy Longlegs?", the little girl asked. As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question, he replied "No dear, both of them are Daddy Longlegs."

The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment. Then took her foot and stomped them flat and said, "Well, we're not having any of that Brokeback-Mountain shit in our garden".

One Christmas, Santa was having a really bad day. The local elves union was up in arms over their contract and were threatening a walk-out. Mrs. Clause was pissed that Santa was never around to appreciate all of the hard work she had been doing around the house. Santa decided he needed to go home, sit in front of a fire and relax.

When he got there, Miss Clause was all up in his face and wouldn't let down. Then, there was a knock on the door. It was Rudolph. He said the reindeer were sick and tired of Santa not upgrading to the new lightweight sleigh and they were joining the elves walkout. Santa slammed the door and threatend "The next person who knocks on that door is gonna get it!"

At that time, there was a knock on the door. Santa flung the door open and there stood a tiny little angel. The angel had been searching for the perfect Christmas tree for Santa's house all day long, until it found the perfect one. The little angel asked, "Santa, I was wondering where you would like me to stick this tree?"

And that is the story of how the angel atop the tree tradition began.

That's it for today my little sleigh belles. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

You know, I've always wondered where the "angel on the top of the tree" tradition came from~now I know. Have a good weekend... and don't forget to come home. PSH is waiting for you. Linda (& Gabi) in Washington

Brian said...

I agree with you on the OJ thing, couldn't believe he got away with the first one and he's been stringing a few more together ever since, justice at last.

Coelha :B said...

What comes around goes around.. It's almost as though he did it to himself on purpose--he knows prison is where he belongs-if he didn't he would have hung low and stayed away from media attention. Instead he reveled in it; even wanted to publish a book. Duh.. What an idiot-but again, subconsciously he KNOWS where he belongs, hey? Julie

Nice Picture of O.J., "Sweet Justice" is what I call it!

I'm so glad OJ is finally where he belonged years ago. I sure hope he doesn't get parole in 6 years.
Loved the jokes!
