Sometimes, Karma Bites You In The Ass...

...and leaves you hog-tied in the front yard. A whole bunch of folks sent this in...

Tulsa Homeowner Hogties Attempted Burglar
TULSA, Oklahoma - A burglary suspect got quite the surprise Wednesday morning. Police say Robert Cole tried to break into a home, but ended up hogtied in the front yard.

The picture is making its way around the Internet. Police say Cole was bum-rushed and hogtied by the homeowner, after he tried to break in to the house in the 2600 block of East 54th Street North.

There's even a picture:

Now, if that doesn't warm the cockles of your little black heart, I don't know what will. You know, there's an express I've often used: "Mess with the bulls, sometimes you get the horns". I think I may have to change that to "Mess with the rodeo guy, sometimes you wind up hog-tied in the front yard".

Now, here's a closing thought to really put a smile on your face. Imagine Punky McPunkerson in jail amongst all the mother rapers and father rapers when they find out what happened. The dude that hog-tied him didn't even stick around - he had to get to work. Imagine how THAT conversation went: "Sorry I'm late, boss. Had to hog-tie an intruder before I left". "Um, you're good..."

Sometimes, bad things happen to bad people - and I'm perfectly OK with that...

That is all.

I've seen a lot of EDC posts and pictures, but not once has anyone mentioned carrying a rope.

That is one prepared operator.

That right there is a thing of beauty.
Also, I've discovered that I cannot say 'hogtie' without the Okie accent slipping out. Something I seem to have in common with all the reporters.

I've got about a foot of paracord tied into a bracelet, but (sadly) that isn't enough for a proper hog-tie.

Should have branded and banded him when they had him roped. He would have made a good steer.

I laughed everytime I thought about this yesterday. I like Gerry's idea of banding him. That'd teach him to break into someones house.

Did he slap his hands together and wait for the judges to score it?

Nice calf ropin. Could not have happened to a nicer guy.

Note to self...keep rope and piggin string handy!

Too bad he didn't hog-tie 'em right down on the cement!

Piggin strings DO work... :-)

Hell, not only should he have been branded, but he shoulda been rendered from young bull to sudden steer.

Oh, and don't forget the ear tag?

What I loved was once he was done, he didn't hang around waiting for the cops, he headed off to work and let his wife watch over the criminal.

One wonders how the aftermath of this would play out in Massachusetts (versus Oklahoma).
