Silly kids, if you're gonna rob the liquor store, don't use your Dad's gun!

Man, this blows my defense plan for the paternity suit. I was gonna claim my sperm sample had been stolen.

How about a tag for "fool" or "dumbass?"

LadyAlexa: if there is a MOJO tag there should Definately be a FOOL tag!

I prefer the "dumbass" tag over "fool"

and to win a darwin award you have actually die in some fantastic, super-human, damned ridiculous fashion. Living constitutes a possible honorable mention only.

I bet he thought he was being really clever when he reported the gun stolen. "Haw haw, they'll never link me with the robbery once I report the gun is stolen!" "Me smarty smarty man."

He was probably trying to cover his ass by reporting it stolen and thus making it seem like someone else used it ot commit the crime. Unforatunately the bumbass had his masked ripped off.
2001-11-01 02:48:28 PM  
obvoiusly its not just the thought that counts here!
2001-11-01 02:48:50 PM  
Could someone please explain the "all your (whatever) are belong to us" thing. I see it over and over and have no idea what it's supposed to mean. I'm assuming it's supposed to be somewhat humerous.

I understood the PPPB in another thread after someone said waht it was but we called it the penguin joke where I grew up.

What would be really funny would be if someone who looked almost like the 19 year old stole the gun and robbed the store. Then the 19 year old notices the gun missing and reports it stolen. Then the 19 year old gets busted from unreliable eyewitness testimony. hehe.

Well, its funny because I'm not him.

Did you try going to
2001-11-01 03:09:56 PM  
Stunt, I almost didn't check that because I was thinking "just how dumb does s/he think I am?" and then I decided that I really was that dumb and checked it. Now it makes (marginally) more sense but since I don't play video games I have no idea what the game is but it does sort of clarify it. Thanks.

It's people like this who lived thru stupid childhood deseases and accidents who really should not have. We are protecting the weak links and all the dumbasses.

Hagbard23: I prefer the "dumbass" tag over "fool" and to win a darwin award you have actually die in some fantastic, super-human, damned ridiculous fashion. Living constitutes a possible honorable mention only.

Actually, the only stipulation on becoming a darwin award winner is that you have to remove yourself from the gene pool. That covers killing yourself in a ridiculous fashion, however, it also includes causing severe damage to your sensitive bits.

Someday in the future, medical technology will advance enough for people to qualify for concurent darwins.

I seem to remember a similar story up in Montreal, Canada where a bank robber made off with something like $3 million and change. He accidentally dropped his car keys at the bank before making his getaway. When he came back to try and find his keys, someone recognized him, and he was subsequently arrested.

San Diego is turning into a real hellhole.
2001-11-01 07:07:27 PM  
You can have my guns when you can pry them from my cold, stiff... um, has anyone seen my gun?
2001-11-01 08:09:17 PM  
Oompaloompa: Hey I resent that. I would much rather prefer idiots like this guy and the harrison ford wannabe fugutive from a few days ago then real pros running around in San Diego.
2001-11-02 01:07:24 AM  
The guy got the kid's gun, mask AND coat away from him? This is why you're not supposed to try and knock over liquor stores while blasted on thorazine.
