In the future, all cars will be on fire.

That's some nice police work there, Lou.

It would take a lot to faze a copper from the Met RCMP.

It would take, for example, a huge, battered car that was nothing more nor less than a fireball, a blazing, roaring, twisted metal lemon from Hell, driven by a grinning lunatic in sunglasses, sitting amid the flames, trailing thick black smoke, coming straight at them through the lashing rain and the wind at eighty miles per hour.

That would do it every time.


/not obscure at all, I hope

Maybe that's the case in Canada. Down here, you can go to a dealership and take a test drive of a flaming pickup truck.

"Cases of spontaneous human combustion are on record all over the world. One minute someone's quite happily chugging along with their life; the next there's a sad photograph of a pile of ashes and a lonely and mysteriously uncharred foot or hand. Cases of spontaneous vehicular combustion are less well documented.
Whatever the statistics were, they had just gone up by one."

/I had to, really!

I hope they rescued the back bacon, donuts, and Rush cassettes from the burning vehicle.

I guess it's living in Toronto - I assumed this was going to be another "Police car torched by anarchists" story.

They were in hot pursuit!

On the one hand, even though this is just a quote I'm just itching to refute it. On the other, though, I think I'm going to take this opportunity to buy that book.

It was a peasant vehicle.

Sadly, the Rush cassettes perished, but the Triumph CDs were saved.

I wish that guy did more of these, when I first saw the site it made my sides hurt from laughing.

Come now, that's actually pretty good figuring for a brain-dead pig.
 
2010-06-28 02:10:42 PM  
I thought cars were like people, no two of them are not on fire.

/What about the Loverboy cassettes?

At least it's a good theft deterrent, unless thieves start walking around with fire extinguishers.

Trent Beaverbones, 21, Jasmyne Roque Gladeau, 20, and Gordon Strawberry, 45, have all been charged with forcible confinement, possession of stolen property, uttering threats and flight from police.

OK, if your last name is Beaverbones, you should just hang up a life of crime right now.
/Clattenburg is taking notes off these guys.
 
2010-06-28 02:12:45 PM  
The other passenger, though, had to be yanked from the vehicle by police just before it was fully engulfed.

Maybe that was all part of his cunning PLAN!

/ok, maybe not.

Google auto-suggests "No two people are not on fire" over "No two people are alike". Nice.

Living in Alberta you definitely come across some chuckle-worthy Native Indian names.

Considering this story came from Drayton Valley, the names don't shock me.
 
2010-06-28 02:29:27 PM  
Huh, not suprised that the suspects were Native.

/Knew lots of great First-nations persons

I think we have a comedian in the Edmonton RCMP PR department.... after a house explosion their comment was "Not every house blows up like that"

I guess you could say they went down in a blaze of glory.

I like it, I do. But I'm really concerned about dying in the fire

I'm not sure why, but for some reason I'm offended you used the term "Edmonton RCMP" to refer to a quote from an Edmonton city police officer and a quote in an article about the Drayton Valley RCMP.
