So he ruined it for us stick lovers at the Super Bowl. Farker

The victims said it was one of those new and improved sticks with one of those laser target thingees.

The robber was about 165 to 175 centimeters tall and appeared to be aged between 25 and 35 years old. As he fled, he dropped a wallet which identifies him as a farm laborer from Oregon, USA"

"People don't kill people, tree branches kill people!"

"What do we want?" "More tree branch control!" "When do we want it?" "NOW!"

"When tree branches are outlawed, only outlaws will have tree branches."

"You can have my tree branch when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers"

I ask, where are the parents of the Columbine tragedy now? And to think, the American people have a holiday dedicated to such destructive weapons as tree branches. Eliminate Arbor day!!

And other such nonsense....

The U.S.A. has already developed a bigger, stonger, more efficient tree branch.

For his next trick, he'll rob two bank branches with a store.

In that other post we were all lauding the Japanese for being so nice and civil. In this story, my vision of Japan is shattered. Either Japan is no better than the South Bronx, and you can get mugged with tree branches, or their merchants are complete idiots. If I were the clerk at a convenience store and it was robbed by some tard with a tree branch, the robber would exit the store with no money, and the branch in a place that it wasn't when he came in.

On the same topic, I was once held up in the Bronx. I had to walk from Webster and 174th to Arthur and 183rd without getting hassled by any of the locals. (you NYers know how amazing that is in those neighborhoods!) As soon as I crossed into Belmont (the Italian neighborhood), I got accosted by a drunk PR specialist, if you catch my drift. The guy tried to rob me with a broken 40. I told this guy where that bottle was going to end up if he didn't go back to his own part of town. He followed me until about 188th or so before he realized he wasn't going to get anything but a busted face and a broken bottle shoved up his ass, so he disappeared and I came away with it with a good story. God I love the Bronx!

Those crazy Japanese, what silly hijinks will they pull next? Maybe robbing a store in a tentacle monster outfit?
 
2002-01-29 06:13:38 PM  
Now you can not take tree branches onto planes.

Japan continues to kick ass.

Japan's crime rate continues to rise.

The good news is the crooks are mostly out of practice.

"The robber was about 165 to 175 centimeters tall and appeared to be aged between 25 and 35 years old."

That's it for a description? Guess even Japanese can't tell each other apart.
 
2002-01-29 08:01:45 PM  
Kinda weird to see somebody's height described in centimeters. Seems a little short, huh?
 
2002-01-29 08:37:23 PM  
Fark yeah! Article number 7, and quite humorous at that.
 
2002-01-29 08:47:58 PM  
Guess he redefined the true meaning of "Stick'em up!"

This guy should really branch out into other things...
 
2002-01-29 09:06:08 PM  
They really need to get to the root of the problems in Japan.
 
2002-01-29 09:06:54 PM  
That guy is real dead wood.
 
2002-01-29 09:07:54 PM  
It looks like his Bark is bigger than his bite.... (Should I stop?)
 
2002-01-29 09:49:41 PM

I think Marshall Dillon caught him in Dodge city at the Long Branch Saloon with Miss Kitty.
 
2002-01-29 10:52:01 PM  
Oh, and he claimed Miss Kitty gave him a woody....
