There have been times in my life that I wished for this.

/now thats where you go on a serious bender
2005-03-31 01:57:18 AM  
Ooh! ooh! It's just like that crappy James Bond movie, but on a smaller and crappier scale.
2005-03-31 08:35:17 AM  
I was wondering where I left my two bricks of cocaine.
2005-03-31 11:29:30 AM  
Now that's what I call High Octane, baby!

I always thought Slidell would be a great redneck name. Given that there's no shortage of rednecks around there, it's surprising no one's tried it yet.

Our energy problems are over! There's enough Columbian nose candy coming over the border to keep our SUVs running for years to come.
2005-03-31 03:30:03 PM  
Good thing they gave the correct pronunciation for Slidell...I never would've guessed.
2005-03-31 03:30:15 PM  
Pretty soon cocaine will be cheaper then gas!

Time to stock up!
2005-03-31 03:30:28 PM  
Hmmmm....."Slidell" Federline.

Has a nice ring to it, doncha think?

Excuse me officer...



Ok, what you were saying officer?

it was probably the worst bond movie ever, but it had its redeeming qualities...

Honey, I think the car has the shakes...

Not the first time "things" have been found in used cars in/around New Orleans.

In '96, a business partner bought a used Benz, and found a .28 caliber 5-shooter in the hidden compartment.

He called it his "throw-down" weapon.

Slidell has very few redeeming qualities, except as an emergency pit-stop on the way to or from the coast beaches.
2005-03-31 03:42:26 PM  
there are advantages to doing your own work on your car.

/I am sure the mechanic meant to say 12 bricks of coke, but 10 of them were still well wrapped.
2005-03-31 03:48:00 PM  
Was the car a Delorean?
2005-03-31 03:51:15 PM  
I bet that was an expensive fill up! HAHAHAHAHA! Expensive. ..see, because it was cocaine, not gas. Because cocaine's more expensive. HAHA!
2005-03-31 03:53:31 PM  
good one amishjihad
2005-03-31 04:03:40 PM  
Ok that would explain why i was snorting sugar all night..

Man, what a headache..

I guess they were high on speed.

So did Benicio del Toro make an appearance?

Know where I can score some?
2005-03-31 04:36:16 PM  
How in the fark does a person forget about something like that? One would think that an amount like that would be missed...
2005-03-31 04:37:46 PM  
OMG esblondie2 I haven't seen that movie in years!

Charles De Mar: This is pure snow! Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?
2005-03-31 04:43:07 PM  
Well they sound like a fun family!

is it easier to start looking through people's gas tanks rather than desperately scouring the floor looking for crumbs which turn out to be lint?

/umm, watch a lot of movies and stuff
2005-03-31 04:52:29 PM  
i wanna know what the hell they had it all packaged in...since 1997 in a tank of gas...some badass baggies they have there
2005-03-31 04:54:09 PM  
Amazingly, this is not Slidell's first appearance on Fark. The town offered up one of its finest for the 2003 Darwin Awards: a guy's cap flew out the car window so he tried to lean out the driver's door to grab it. While driving backwards. Without a seatbelt. You know the rest.

AmishJihad - AWO?
2005-03-31 05:18:26 PM  
saboisgod, I was wondering the same thing. The only thing I could come up with is that maybe these people bought the car at a police auction or something, that's the only way I can think of the previous owners (whoever was arrested in the vehicle) not only not trying to retrieve it, but just hoping it was never discovered in the first place. Two bricks of cocaine isn't something you just "forget" about...
2005-03-31 05:23:52 PM  
Talk about sniffing gas!
2005-03-31 05:29:27 PM  
no easy rider references?
2005-03-31 05:32:51 PM  
Nothing that happens in Slidell will surprise me any more. They must have noticed something was wrong when the white line on the road was disappearing as the Camry passed over it.

And no one has mentioned 'snow tires' for this car yet?
2005-03-31 05:34:49 PM  
(Another Slidell note: As you drive by on I-10, there used to be an enormous slide, the kind kids play on, on the city-side of the highway near the Fremaux overpass. Naturally, the Slidell Slide. And nearby Waveland, Mississippi has a wave pool.)

There is an Unclaimed Baggage store in a town close to where I live. It sells all sorts of unclaimed merchandise and cargo from the airlines (the stuff they lost for you).

This one lady bought a case of fabric softener from there. The bottles of fabric softener were packed full of packets of cocaine. It made the local news because she turned it in to the police.

Finally an explanation for high gas prices that doesn't involve politics!
2005-03-31 06:10:32 PM  
Going to Slidell to buy my next used car...

"Look, I've ripped everything out except the rocker panels gas tank."
2005-03-31 06:54:38 PM  
Now that's what I call an honest mechanic.
2005-03-31 07:34:36 PM  
This guy wanted for questioning.

/not obscure?

One of my best friends killed a man in Slidell over cocaine. About 4 years ago. About 6 months after I was down there partying with him. There is a nice brewery where we got plastered close by. I can't remember the name but I think it is the Abita Brewery or something like that. Whatever, we scored in the neighborhood and it was totally bizare. I had some crack ho come up to me while my buddy was working things out and offered me 2 BJ's for 5 dollars. While I could think about using one of them, I really didn't think she would honor the second if I came back for it later. That and she only had stubs of broken off teeth made me pass on the offer. Still had a great time in Slidell. Hope my buddy gets out soon.

Slidell's a hick town? As someone who lived there for 12 years, I can say that's it way, way less hickish than most of the rest of the general area. It's probably the region of highest average income in the state. You want hicks, try Pearl River or something.

I've heard lots of stories of people buying used cars and finding they had a little present hidden in them somewheres.

There's these two hapless guys (; pops) from Mexico. They bought a vehicle at US Government auction that turned out to have marijuana hidden in the door panels. They're currently in a Mexican prison for possession.

There was also a story a couple of years ago about the Delaware State Police using a seized minivan for training drug dogs. well, this one dog kept alerting on the vehicle even when no drugs were placed in it. Finally they ripped the vehicle apart and found cocaine under the floorboards that hadn't been found in the initial inventory of the vehicle that was made after the arrest. I pity the poor sap who would have bought that minivan at police auction.

Really, what the hell can you do if you buy a used car and drive it around for a while, get pulled over on a traffic stop, and then the cops find contraband in the car? Not much, I'll wager. I wonder if you can take a car you just bought over to your local lawn forcement and have 'em check it for contraband.
