Who made the Hottentots so hot?

Bart Simpson wanted for questioning.

One munchkin was reportedly so distraught, he could be seen hanging himself in the background, disturbing children across America.

Maybe Bush was looking for more courage.

Some hippie probably stole it.

Head theft trifecta in play?
2007-07-20 11:15:07 PM  
Oh, come on, you really think a story like this is true?

darksasami: Head theft trifecta in play?

+1. It took me far too long to get that.

This is gonna be comedy gold, I can just sense it ...

GOLD I tell ya.

Gold laced with poppy seeds, and ruby slippers on top.

How's that for imagery?

Was it a liger?

Apparently my grandparents threw cocktail parties, and the Cowardly Lion was one of their friends, so he came.

That's all I got.

Well, almost. At the same cocktail parties, they had a friend who had a glass eye. And who would plunk it into peoples' martinis to scare the living hell out of them.

Since the story's from McDonald, PA I feel I should make some lame joke about the Hamburglar...but I give up.

Release the winged monkeys!

The mane thing is, nobody should lose their heads over this thing.

I would be lion if I said I wasn't feline a bit cubby for roaring with laughter at your cat-like comedy reflexes. Cat's outta the bag, blazemongr is funny, and has material you can really sink your teeth into.

oh, and . . . uh . . . cats. (Not yet caturday in Montana)

I assure you that whoever has it mounted on their wall is not giving it back.

This is what happens when you put disgruntled Munchkins in high-ranking positions with the Lollipop Guild.
2007-07-20 11:39:55 PM  
follow the yellow brick road?

They'll find the courage inside the Lion's head. It was there the whole time.
2007-07-21 12:24:47 AM  
Insurance won't cover it because of some claws or something...
2007-07-21 12:25:14 AM  
Is there some link between The Wizard of Oz and Pennsylvania that I'm not aware of? Still sucks that some smartass had to steal it.
2007-07-21 12:35:30 AM  
How long can you stay fresh in that can? mwuhuhuhuh.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I find your pun to be ap-paw-ling.

bad joke

I'm guessing the SAD Tag is for the guy ?
I can't imagine dedicating myself to a movie or anything/anybody like a Trekies

/Alcohol an exemption.

i'm guessing it was a furry looking for the ultimate outift
2007-07-21 02:09:01 AM  
That's BS. Bert Lahr's head is right here on my pillow, where it's been for decades.
2007-07-21 03:12:48 AM  
This sounds like a hairy situation.

Could be a cat burglar.
2007-07-21 04:59:54 AM  
I guess the thief didn't have a heart.
2007-07-22 04:50:22 AM  
A mask?! And all along I thought that was David Crosby...
