That would have been the slowest stampede, ever.

You would think that all of their depends would have soaked up the water, and they could just continue playing their BINGO.

Kids suck.

If I can't hose down old folks with squirt guns, the terrorist have already won.
2001-11-21 06:34:47 PM  
Give these kids a f.u.cking medal.
2001-11-21 06:34:50 PM

'Darn whipper-snappers. They didn't have to spray me. I'd already wet myself.'

How about a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray.

If students are terrorizing the elderly, then the terrorists have already won.

What is cool, or funny about this, good thing one of these old bastards did not have a heart attack, then we would have a manslaughter case going against these three kids. Kids are so stupid, I cannot believe that any of us make it through our teen years.

Damned coon-ass-crawdaddy-eatin-jambaylaya-spittin'-chaw-dippin' Cajuns.
Seriously, it is funny that a state thought to be so ass-backwards AND based on the Napoleonic code of law, would hand down a WORTHY alternative sentence.
2001-11-21 06:50:42 PM  
damn kids...just wait until I get old(er). I am gonna stay in shape just so I can walk up and down the street biatchslapping the goofy loud-music listening, baggy pants wearin', funny haircut-havin,

OK I sound like my dad when he was talking about us when we was being long hair bellbottomand tiedye wearin ledzeppelin listening teenagers...

we would have NEVER sqirtgunned a bingo game tho...we would put bags of dogpoop on the porches of the old folks and lite it on fire and ring the doorbells....

OK...I better just leave it at --->damn them kids

What I would give to be able to buy my old Entertech pump shotgun water gun, called, The Saturator, again. One pump, and Blam! Bitach!, your shirt had a quarter cup of water dispersed like #3 shot at close range.

These "kids" were 18 years old. It's time for them to learn a lesson mommy and daddy apparently didn't teach them. A little jail time might do them some good, too bad the judge thinks an essay is appropriate punishment.

Hey Walrustoof... FARK YOU! I was born and raised in Houma, LA. I still live here to this day. I can't stand people who have no idea what it's like down here watching stuff like "The Waterboy" and thinking that that's how we actually live here. Why don't you come here for Farkfest (Houma is less than an Hour away from New Orleans) and see how we really do things...

BTW. One of the guys who did it is my ex-brother-in-law. It was just a damn joke, plus it was over a month ago that it happened.

Here's some more on the artice...
Here's the original

This is the follow of basically what you just read...
2001-11-21 07:09:37 PM  
All I can think of is the " Thriller " video for some reason.

The best fishing and crabbing and shrimping I have ever seen was on that lake right below Lake Charles, almost to Holly Beach, maybe the second or third canal. Freshwater marsh on the west side of the highway, saltwater lake on the east, Reds, Specks, Flounder, damn I miss that place.

2001-11-21 07:24:14 PM  

I still say these kids should be given a medal.
2001-11-21 07:28:02 PM  
Scraping... I hear ya man. Only problem is that's all the way on the other side of the state from me. All these people that eat Redfish, shrimp, crabs, oysters, etc. don't realize where most of that stuff comes from... HERE!

BTW everyone, the next time that you read an article like that, ask yourself one thing. If you were 18, drunk, and bored, wouldn't you come up with something stupid like that for you and your friends to do? Yeah, their judgement was a little off, but that's not as bad as mailing Anthrax or flying a plane into a building. It was TAP WATER for christ's sake!
2001-11-21 07:28:28 PM  
They were just pissed that their tokens got moved off their bingo cards. If you're over 70, that would be enough to set them off.
2001-11-21 07:35:56 PM  
Here's a chill pill for ya. Relax, I'm just shiat-talkin'. Hell, I'm from Tx., and have spent a lot of time in Monroe, Shreveport, Lafayette, Lake Charles, and New Orleans. Ain't nothin' wrong w/ people fr/ La. Well, the cops are all crooked as fark. ;-) La. is a fun ass place. Mardi Gras teets RAWCK!!
Peace out G-$, and have a deep-fried Turkey Day.

Nothing smells worse than angry wet old women playing bingo, Pee-yew

Walrustoof... I didn't mean to go off like that dude. It's just that I'm real protective of my Cajun lifestyle and history. There are a lot of stupid people in this world who don't thing the same way that you do.. (I've had someone actually ask me if we had pet Alligators instead of dogs...) Even though I did have a pet gator when I was a kid... We had to get rid of him when he ate the dog.

Oh yeah, and the cops are crooked as shiat. For instance, the Sheriff of Terrebonne Parish (Houma) was indicted by a grand jury for Conspiracy to commit murder against his wife, and was Re-elected while the grand jury was still investigating him. It's not the heat or the humidity... it's the stupidity...

"...who feared the prank was connected to the Sept. 11 terrorists attacks or anthrax scares."

OH PUH-PLEEEEZE! I'm sick of this shiat! The media loves to take any and every story and so how have it connect to the freaking september 11th disaster! WORST OF ALL, PEOPLE EAT THIS shiat UP!! I could only imagine the articles in the paper...

" throw stuffed dummy off of a high building... people go into hystericle fit of seizures because they have flashbacks to Sept. 11th disaster..."

Person 1: YES, IT MUST BE!!!!!
Person 1: THE BASTARDS!!

I think I'm going insane....

The bingo players were hiding from the stacks and stacks of unopened mail on their tables.
2001-11-21 10:03:07 PM  
does anyone know if there will be an update tonight because of the holidaze??

2001-11-21 10:06:41 PM  
I think this is funny. And I think the sentence was just. But calling it battery is kind of silly.
2001-11-21 11:21:17 PM  
I've played bingo at these "bingo" "parlours" before. Whatever you do, don't win. Old people will bore into your skull with their deadly eyebeams.
2001-11-22 01:03:55 AM  
Fear&Loathing: Lesson to be learned from this--save up for retirement otherwise you'll have to try to earn money playing Bingo. :)

The horror...the horror...

They had to write an essay on 'why I am proud to be an American'?

Personally I'm proud that the little bastards are American because it means they aren't Brits. and that goes for the idiot judge too. Whee, let's bully old people!
2001-11-22 09:20:29 AM  
Hope when I'm 80 I can still laugh at stuff like that - they could have retailiated, lots of fluids at hand :)
