Tragic Massacre In Washington D.C.
If there is one positive thing about today's massacre in Washington, D.C., it's that the perpetrator is dead! No time consuming and costly trial, no drawn out investigation, no waiting for a way for the prosecution or the government to screw up the deal. Just thin the damn herd !
If there is a question as to who truly committed the crime, then, without a doubt, an investigation and trial is the proper way to determine the fate of the suspect. In a case of no question or doubt about the suspect's role in the murder, then shoot the son-of-a-bitch and let's move on!

Today's Horoscope: Virgo - September 16th: Knowing your hand span may become useful over the coming days, although the mystics will not give me any information as to how or why. If you mis-use the word literally once more today ("I *literally* laughed my ass off"), you're going to feel what it's like to be hit "upside the head".

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: The Pope went on vacation for a few days to visit the rugged mountains of Alaska . He was driving along the campground when he heard a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods. He found a helpless Democrat wearing shorts, sandals, a "Vote for Obama" hat and a "Save the Trees" shirt.
The man was screaming and struggling frantically, thrashing all about and trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10-foot-tall grizzly bear.
As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers wearing "Go Sarah" shirts came racing up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum slug right into the bear's chest. The two other men pulled the semiconscious Democrat from the bear's grasp.
Then, using baseball bats, the three loggers finished off the bear. Two of the men dragged the dead grizzly onto the bed of their pickup truck while the other tenderly placed the injured Democrat in the back seat.
As they began to leave, the Pope summoned all of them over to him. "I give you my blessing for your brave actions!" he proudly proclaimed. "I have heard there was bitter hatred between Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists, but now I've seen with my own eyes that this is not true."
As the Pope drove off, one logger asked his buddies, "Who the hell was that guy?" His friend replied, "Dude, that was the Pope. He's in direct contact with Heaven and has access to all wisdom."
The logger said, "Well, he may have access to all wisdom, but he don't know shit about bear hunting! By the way, go check ans see if our bait still alive or if we need to go back to California and get another one."

The trooper says, "Sir, have you been drinking?" The priest replies, "Just water, officer." The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?" The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal Mike for his contribution to today's stories.
After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counseling. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. She went on and on and on about neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, feeling unloved, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.
Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched - with a raised eyebrow. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.
The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Do you feel you can you do this?" The husband replied, "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I go fishing."
A fly was buzzing around a barn one day when he happened on a pile of fresh cow manure. It had been hours since his last meal and he flew down and began to eat. He ate and ate and ate. Finally, he decided he had eaten enough and tried to fly away.
He had eaten too much though, and could not get off the ground. As he looked around wondering what to do now, he spotted a pitchfork leaning up against the wall.
He climbed to the top of the handle and jumped off, thinking that once he got airborne, he would be able to take flight. Unfortunately he was wrong and dropped like a rock, splatting when he hit the floor.
Moral of the story: Never fly off the handle when you're full of shit.
That's it for today, my little cotton tails. Remember, due to the economic crisis and ever increasing price of food, the 5 second grace drop rule has now been increased to 10.
More on Wednesday.
