After a dozen, it's no longer an accident...

The mental image:
"People were flying everywhere," said Kyler Close"
2003-04-20 01:00:32 PM  
Those wacky seniors and their crazy driving antics.
2003-04-20 01:25:28 PM  
Well, guess they get to see Jehova sooner, at which time he'll kick their asses for being so annoying.
2003-04-20 01:39:40 PM  
When the HELL are seniors going to lose their licenses to drive? They're crazy behind the wheel.

Oh, but not in this case.
2003-04-20 01:50:55 PM  
Their licenses have just reached tenure status.
2003-04-20 01:51:38 PM  
Snaguaro beat everyone to it.
2003-04-20 01:51:38 PM  
i wonder if there were any witnesses there.

This is what you get for trying to shove your religion down other people's throats.
2003-04-20 01:53:23 PM  
GOD : 0

Jehovah's Witnesses : 13

God, I know you could do better than THAT.
2003-04-20 01:54:13 PM  
Hey, I have known lots of Jehovas' witnesses and they are some of the nicest people I've ever met. And I hate old people. So the driver does NOT deserve the hero tag.
2003-04-20 01:54:36 PM  
Hero tag should ensue....
2003-04-20 01:55:23 PM  
Gotta hire him.

Kinda reminded me of this.
2003-04-20 01:56:44 PM  
"This many people being injured in a religious service certainly doesn't make you feel good. We're fortunate it wasn't worse,"

Yes, god was only slightly pissed...this was just a warning. Next time it will be a snow plow.

Praise be.
2003-04-20 01:56:52 PM  

shouldnt that be...

Old Man: 13
Jehovah's Witnesses: 0!
2003-04-20 01:56:58 PM  
"i wonder if there were any witnesses there."

Um, don't you mean, "I wonder if there was a cheerleading section there." ?
Two, four, six, eight,
We won't let the Jehovah's congregate !

2003-04-20 01:57:26 PM  
just another senior citezen who mistook the gas for the brake

/nothing to see here
2003-04-20 01:57:33 PM  
Wow, he was the one driving and he still broke a hip...
2003-04-20 01:57:47 PM  
he'd have been a hero had he thrown it in drive afterwards and finished the job
2003-04-20 01:57:55 PM  
These people don't do anything hurtful to anyone. But because they try to preach the bible you people love to see them get hurt. I'm glad there are people like them to annoy jackasses like yourselves.
2003-04-20 01:58:00 PM  
"Cunningham said the injured included five children: two 14-year-olds, a 4-year-old, a 1-year-old and an 18-month-old. None of the toddlers' injuries were considered serious, the mayor said. "

Well, sins of the father and all that...
2003-04-20 01:58:03 PM  
**(ahem) citizen
2003-04-20 01:58:24 PM  
So whats the problem here?
2003-04-20 01:58:30 PM  
Happy Easter!
2003-04-20 01:59:04 PM  
And to think that I thought I was going to be original and clever by requesting a "Hero" tag.
2003-04-20 01:59:06 PM  
We should ship these old people to Israel. They could stop the whole Israeli/Palistinian conflict. Once the old people start bumping them off in their "terrorist" attacks the two groups will band together to wipe out the old people.

Of course, they'll still end up killing as many of their own people in accidents...but at least they'll be hating someone else for a while.
2003-04-20 01:59:13 PM  
Hmm, an old man rams you as you come out of your church. Maybe it's a sign?
Jehovah's Witness(-ism?)

Let's see, who's next on the list?
2003-04-20 02:00:49 PM  
Love it, a friggin bakers dozen! I have known some witnesses too, kinda like Nazis. Helped one decorate a Christmas tree once, she had never done that before. She was dating a Mexican and her family was disowning her. Got to love that religion/racism!
2003-04-20 02:01:09 PM  
Umm, the list of religions above is meant to have each entry crossed out. Don't know why it didn't show up, guess that command not enabled?

Hey R what game is that?
2003-04-20 02:03:45 PM  
it's not just that these people are trying to preach the bible(don't need that), but it's that they talk down to you and act as if they're reaching down to pull you out of the gutter. they're arrogant.
2003-04-20 02:03:54 PM  
So many christian, so few reckless drivers!
13 a wack might even the odds.

When I was in high school the Jehovah's Witnesses showed up at our place a lot. I once had a (female) Jehovah's Witness and her ~15 year old daughter come to the door wanting to talk to me about STD's and whether they were god's revenge.

That was the last time they ever visited.
2003-04-20 02:05:43 PM  
So that's why they allow senior citizens to drive. I was wondering about that.
2003-04-20 02:05:49 PM  
AHHA! My Army of Elderly Mercenaries has begun their plan of World Domination! You have seen the end when my Grey Army slowly destroys you all!

2003-04-20 02:06:24 PM  
Driver's License to Kill.
2003-04-20 02:08:59 PM  
Kilroy, or Carlos the Jackal, you decide.
2003-04-20 02:09:32 PM  
DonnieFarko, after looking at the source of the comments, you didn't have the strikethrough tags enabled.

Did you type in <s> text here </s> ?

Hope it works for me
2003-04-20 02:09:32 PM  
Well, it's a start.
2003-04-20 02:09:37 PM  
"Hey R what game is that?"
Before there was Grand Theft Auto, there was that game, Carmageddon. A racing game where you necessarilly (sp ?) did not have to finish the race to win, just mow down whatever you saw, including pedestrians, ect. Very fun game, you've never played a proper racing game till you ran over a cow (mehhhhhh !). Banned in the UK if I remember.
2003-04-20 02:10:09 PM  
Well that should free up some saturday mornings for a while.
2003-04-20 02:10:14 PM  
13X1000 = 13000 points


2003-04-20 02:10:24 PM  
Never mind, it did the same thing to me.

Sorry DonnieFarko for insulting your intelligence :-/
2003-04-20 02:10:39 PM  
He was probably aiming for his wife, who was soon to "exit the gathering", as he resents her religion.
2003-04-20 02:11:14 PM  
Do I preach to you when you're lying stoned in the gutter?
