Miami Beach is once again hosting "Urban Weekend", a tradition where hordes of Urbans come to Miami Beach and engage in Urban tomfoolery such as gang fights, robberies and shootings. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend as I am Suburban and do not not qualify for the festivities. Drat!

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal Skip for his contribution to today's stories.

A man wanted an attack dog to protect his business, so he visited a kennel that specialized in attack dogs. The man explained to the kennel owner that he wanted the biggest, meanest, most vicious dog in the kennel, and the owner offered to take the man on a tour of the premises.
After they had been walking for a few minutes, they came upon a large dog. He was snarling loudly and biting and clawing at the cage. "He looks like he'd be a pretty good attack dog," said the buyer. "Well, he's not bad," replied the owner, "but I have something better in mind for you."
They continued walking around the premises, and after a while they found an even larger, meaner dog than the first. He snarled at the two men and tried to bite them through the wire on his cage. "Ah," said the buyer. "This must be the dog you were referring to earlier." "Well, no," said the owner. "I have something better in mind for you."
The men continued their tour. Eventually, they came upon a fairly large dog that was lying quietly on his side, licking his ass. He did not seem to notice as the men approached. The owner said, "This is the dog I had in mind for you"
The buyer was flabbergasted. "You're joking!" he exclaimed. "This dog seems quite tame. He doesn't act at all like an attack dog at all. Hell, he's just lying there, licking his ass!" The owner says "I know, he just ate a lawyer and he's trying to get the taste out of his mouth."
That's it for today, my little doodle bugs. Remember, to be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour. Have a safe and great Memorial Day weekend and more on Monday.
