Man arrested; deputies say he aimed banana at them
A man is facing a felony menacing charge after two western Colorado sheriff's deputies say he pointed a banana at them and they thought it was a gun.[drops mike] I'm done.
I mean, seriously. How can I possibly parody this? How can you come up with satire when real life is that much more bizarre? Now, I won't dig on the cops too much. It's possible this guy whipped the banana out quickly, before they could identify the item but just saw something in the man's hand. To their credit, they held their fire after the man explained it was a banana.
It gets better, though.
The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports 27-year-old Nathan Rolf Channing, of Fruitvale, was arrested Sunday.See? Can't. Make. This. Up.
Fruitvale. A banana. I think my work here is done.
No, wait, there's this:
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
That is all.
