So full of win.

Homeless paper guy in on the tackle.

Why would someone disguise themselves as Austin Powers?

/or William Shatner

He was probably just trying to sell him a paper.

"Real CHANGE!?"

Ishii said he visited a groggy Sandoval in the hospital on Friday and that Sandoval will undergo surgery to have a bullet removed from his left forearm.

"He's a great guy, a hard worker. He would help anyone out," Ishii said of Sandoval, who has worked at the 85-year-old, family-owned hotel for 11 years.

"He's looking good. He was lucky. Talk about dodging a bullet."


"...I mean, not literally of course."

Police are still looking for his accomplice, Freddy Kruger.

If only the thief used rollerskates and hangliding in his caper, we'd be halfway to a CHiPs episode.

A Michael Myers unmasking?

And he would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids!

I had no idea there was bizarre violent crime in Seattle. The only two people I've ever known to visit or live in Seattle for a while both claim the laid back, calm, relaxed attitude of people in Seattle drove them each to abandon their pacifist beliefs. One claims he became so frustrated living and working with people who seemed never to get angry about anything, he began to have fantasies of bludgeoning the guy in the next cubicle with a coffee mug. When he realized he'd never be laid back enough for Seattle, he came back to the Southeast.

It was William Shatner in a Michael Myers mask.

We're through the looking glass here people....

Shooting somebody who's unarmed is tasteless.

But chasing down an armed robber is stupid. The jewelry was insured and it ain't your money. "Oh, nice pistol sir! Just help yourself while I stand back out of your way."

Hero my ass. "Imma get on TV!" is more like it.

He didn't dodge the bullet, O-ren. That's how come you had to visit him in the hospital.

You could call them criminals. For the most part everyone here is laid back and eccentricity is tolerated to a very high extent. But when people snap they really snap.

I'm back from brief journey to Wikipedia. First, ick and oh my G-d. Bundy was incarcerated in 1975. I was eight years old. So, yeah, even my highly dysfunctional family would not have plopped me down in front of a lot of news programs about him.

I was two years old at the time, and I grew up hearing about Bundy, at least. You must be very sheltered.
