Friday Postlings

Here's another roundup of interesting stories collected over the past couple days:

Yankeefried sends in notice of the latest scourge of the CSPC.

Yep, irresponsible parents might leave these toys where younger children could swallow them, causing possible internal injuries. Now, I distinctly remember my son having very similar toys, and he never choked on them - of course, he didn't play with them when he was three...

The BLNN sends us a shocking story of government employees violating employment laws regarding nepotism.

Yeah, just watch me get out my shocked face here. Government employees using their cushy federal jobs to get cushy federal jobs for their sons/daughters/nieces/nephews/etc. Didn't see that one coming, unless of course you have the slightest inkling of how human nature works...

Gerry sends in a story of a man who went out with a smile on his face.

Now, I just... Nah. Can't add anything to that story.

Kilted to Kick Cancer is now on Facebook.

We'll be having the second annual Kilted to Kick Cancer Fundraiser starting September 1st. I have a few tricks up my sleeve, including this:


And, lastly, JD Rush took the Florida internet cafe shooting and ran with the video.

I don't care who you are, that's funny right there. There's just something about watching an irate septuagenarian chase a couple of punks around while shooting them in the ass with a .380 ACP to put a smile on your face. TheBoy laughed when he saw it, too...

Happy Friday, everyone.

That is all.

This must give the CPSC a serious case of the vapors.

Did you hear about the dollar store robbery in OKC?
The manager calls 911, drops the phone, then you hear the INSANELY LOUD *PING* of his aluminum baseball bat rebounding off the goblins head...reapeatedly!!
Some insane genius even worked the sound into a few songs.

Also, on the MSNBC homepage, there's a link to a story about the armed man stopping a stabbing spree... all I keep getting is a 404 error. (are you as shocked as I am?)

Thank you so much for linking that video! I can't stop watching!

I have to be honest - a little part of me wishes that was a video of a septuagenarian firing .45 ACP rounds at those punks.

Like I said in the post,the internet cafe just screamed Yakkity Sax to me. I was going to use the Bennyhillinator, changed my mind and did it in MS paint, I mean movie maker.

Love the baseball bat audio....

The heck with the kilt. I think the new title should be "white tube socks to cure cancer".
