So you're feeling bloated today, eh turkey breath? I told you to eat small portions of everything, but noooooo, you had to (excuse the expression) gobble it up. But fret not, take a couple of Rolaids and prepare for more holiday dinners including Christmas and New Year's Eve.
The St Louis Post-Dispatch reported that two men indicted last week on federal weapons charges allegedly had plans to bomb the Gateway Arch and to kill St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson.
Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did purchase what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.
The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer Welfare card was replenished.
An indictment, with no mention of bombs or killings, was returned in federal court November 19th and unsealed Friday upon the arrest of Brandon Orlando Baldwin (above left) and Olajuwon Ali Davis. Their addresses and Baldwin’s age were not available; Davis is 22.
So, you see, kids, if you aspire to grow up to be a Blank Panther, you must at least get a G.E.D diploma so you can earn enough money to buy bombs without using your "ho's" Welfare card. I'd also recommend making out your will.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to Brother Kirt for his contribution to today's stories.
A woman and a man are lying in bed next to each other when her cell phone rings. She picks up, the man looks over at her and listens intently as he lights a cigarette.
In a cheery voice,she says, "Hi, I'm so glad you called. Really? That's wonderful. I'm so happy for you. That sounds terrific. Great! Thanks. Okay. Bye bye, see you Sunday."
She hangs up, and the man beside her asks asks, "Who was that?" She replies casually, "That was my husband telling me all about the great time he's having on his golf trip with you."

Have a great weekend and more on Monday.
