New i-Phone Cover Fad Could Lead to User's Death
A new i-phone cover that looks very much like a real handgun could easily lead to the user being shot and killed, especially at night. Police officers don't have the luxury of time when making split-second decisions while interacting with the public.
In the case of a reported shooting threat or shooting, police would respond quicker to a suspect who happened to be holding this new i-phone cover. The same is true of traffic stops. A phone cover resembling a weapon in a car would automatically be a perceived threat to the police officer.
Many police departments have gone to Facebook and Twitter warning of the dangers of these new covers. Critics are livid, calling the covers dangerous and demanding that they be banned.
I would suggest to all parents that they make sure that their children to not have or use these cases. On the other hand, you could do nothing and possibly attend your own child's funeral. It's your call.......

A blonde wanted to go ice fishing. After getting all the necessary gear together, she made for the nearest frozen lake. After positioning her comfy stool, she started to make a circular cut in the ice.
Suddenly, from the sky, a voice boomed, "There Are No Fish Under The Ice!" Startled the blonde moved further down the ice, poured a thermos of cappuccino and began to cut another.
Again from the above, the voice bellowed, "There Are No Fish Under The Ice!" The blonde, now quite worried, moved down to the opposite end of the ice, set up her stool, and tried again to cut her hole.
The voice came once more, "There Are No Fish Under The Ice!!." She stopped, looked skyward and said, "Is that you Lord?" The voice replied, "No, this is the Ice Skating Rink Manager....."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: An old guy goes to his doctor for his physical and gets sent to the Urologist as a precaution. When he gets there, he discovers the Urologist is a very pretty female doctor.
The female doctor says, "I'm going to check your prostate today, but this new procedure is a little different from what you are probably used to. I want you to lie on your right side, bend your knees, then while I check your prostate, take a deep breath and say, 'Ninety-nine'."
The old guy obeys and says,"99." The doctor says, "Great."Now turn over on your left side and again, while I repeat the check, take a deep breath and say, '99'." Again, the old guy says, "99."
The doctor says, "Good. Now, I want you to lie on your back with your knees raised. I'm going to check your prostate with this hand. With the other hand I'm going to hold on to your penis to keep it out of the way. Now take a deep breath and say, '99'." The old guy says, "One...Two...Three..."
A Priest was about to finish his tour of duty in the jungle where he has spent years teaching the natives to be civilized and kind to each other when he realizes that the one thing he never taught them was how to speak English.
The priest takes the chief for a walk in the forest. He points to a tree and says to the chief, "This is a tree." The chief looks at the tree and grunts, "Tree." The Priest is pleased with the response.
They walk a little further and he points to a rock and says, "This is a rock." Hearing this, the chief looks and grunts, "Rock." The Priest was really getting enthusiastic about the results when he hears a rustling in the bushes.
As they peek over the top, he sees a couple of natives in the midst of heavy sexual activity. The Priest is really flustered and quickly responds, "Man riding a bicycle." The chief looks at the couple briefly, pulls out his blowgun and kills them both.
The Priest goes ballistic and yells at the chief that he has spent years teaching the tribe how to be civilized and be kind to each other, so how could he kill these people in cold blood that way? The chief replied, "That my bicycle."
That's it for today, my little sweet potatoes. Remember, it isn't until your kids start talking back that you realize a dog or cat would've been a better option. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
