2001-12-21 01:45:54 PM  
It's an ARTIFICIAL tree. That's a crime in itself.
2001-12-21 01:46:52 PM  
Sure, they didn't even QUESTION the tree... How biased is THAT...
2001-12-21 01:48:04 PM  
That tree went psycho. Just jumped right out

Korzeniowski Thems artificials will do that

If it was one of those fake white ones from the '70s that I could understand.

When Christmas Trees Go Bad Tonight on Fox
2001-12-21 01:52:16 PM  
What about one of those 70s silver ones with the rotating red, blue, and green lights?
2001-12-21 01:53:17 PM  
It's like that scene from "The Ref" when he's beating the Christmas tree with the poker...I think it had the most swearing of all the Christmas movies out there...

"You want a piece of me?! I'm Santa Claus!"

Nothing like a DFC (Dysfuntional Family Christmas) as opposed to this DFC
2001-12-21 01:53:47 PM  
Oooouugh, the 70s

How cool is remon for showing us he got to the comments section before everyone else? Lets all give him a big cheer for being so brave and quick with his fingers.

He could have avoided the entire situation by being Jewish.
2001-12-21 01:58:38 PM  
No the white ones always had sort of a desparate "trying to be real" feel about them. The silver ones were fake. Period.

From one Jeff to another, I salute you, Jeff! I'm a firm supporter of the exercising of one's authority.

Ed McMahon's thoughts on this article: Then the terrorists may have already won $1,000,000.

I'd have done the same thing in his situation. Did you see the way it was looking at him?
2001-12-21 02:03:47 PM  
second DWI, possession of marijuana, and possession of paraphernalia ... wow, exactly what i got (minus the SECOND aspect of that DWI)

Beckermeyer's act of vandalism still has parish Administrator Dennis Woodward shaking his head. "It sounds like the guy needs a class in anger management."

It's moronic comments like that that make me really hate most cops .. something tells me there was more to the attach than anger

Also, I like cheese
2001-12-21 02:06:21 PM  
That's why I try to stay out of Bossier...
2001-12-21 02:06:22 PM  
Yaaaa.. I hate the holidays too
2001-12-21 02:06:34 PM  
The tree was asking for it.
2001-12-21 02:12:58 PM  
Bass555 : I grew up with that tree! Color wheel and all. I almost bought one on Ebay just for the memories.
2001-12-21 02:20:38 PM  
He did it "without explanation". What's to explain? Stop taking away his right to drive stoned and drunk and he wont need an "anger management class".

Stupid Louisiana liberals.
2001-12-21 02:30:03 PM  
Maybe he was mad that the cops took his stash, and just wanted to break himself off something.
2001-12-21 02:30:07 PM  
You are all seriously craking me up!

Some funny sh*t there folks.
2001-12-21 02:30:46 PM  
"Santy Claus...why? Why are you trashing our Christmas tree? Why?"
2001-12-21 02:31:18 PM  
Cracking me up too.
2001-12-21 02:44:25 PM  
i guess none of you guys ever had to sit in the drunk tank smashed to the point of blurry, spinning sickness, watching "It's A Wonderful Life" over and over again. i feel your pain Beckenmyer. i take down as many christmas trees as i can now too.
2001-12-21 02:45:34 PM  
I've heard that breed will turn on you. Damned Douglas Firs should be outlawed.
2001-12-21 02:55:14 PM  
There's a Police Jury in this place? What happens? The judge walks into the squad room and yells "OK guys, I need 12 for a jaywalking case!" I'll bet they have the shortest trials in history and a great conviction record.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

"It's always nice being noticed for your acheivements, and to be rewarded with an honor such as has been bestowed upon me."
"I'd like to take a moment to thank all the little people who made this possible....[remon pulls scrap of paper from his pocket and reads...] Jeff....FARK moderator Jeff, thank YOU for all your support in this 'Comments Thingee' post, and for the HONOR of perpetually sliding me down to the final post." "It is indeed an honor to be disciplined in this manner from someone of your caliber.""As they always say, 'A public embarrassment is always better than just ignoring the situation and letting it fade away'."

All hail the real cool one....., JEFF !!!!!!

Perrin: What's that from?! Now I know what to get my grandmother for Christmas next year!
2001-12-21 03:32:46 PM

2001-12-21 03:35:29 PM  
That's it! "The Ref". I think I'll pick up a copy for my visiting family to watch next week.

Thanks, Perrin!

2001-12-21 03:46:33 PM  
Hmm, can you say flashback?
2001-12-21 03:55:58 PM  
Once I got in a fight with a christmas tree. It was looking at me real funny all night. I'd had a few drinks, sure, but the tree was all like "wanna fight" and "my bark is worse than my bite" and stuff. So, after several hours of it's crap, I asked it to step outside. Never taken such a beating in my life. Of course, that was a real tree...
2001-12-21 03:58:14 PM  
Finkboy Those damn Christmas trees are always trouble. Especially Scotch pines...drinkers...

As I just told everyone in my office...Exposure to prolonged Christmas celebration makes Caboozy violent...
2001-12-21 04:09:40 PM  
The only tree that will always be on my mind will be my grandparents 3 1/2 foot tall blue plastic tree. The thing has 7 ornaments and a metal trunk/stand. To open it, you do the same as with an umbrella. Click a button and out it pops, in all it's chrismassy(sp?) goodness. When the 26th rolls around, your just push down on the sides until it locks and then they throw it back down the basement stairs.

2001-12-21 04:11:10 PM  
surely the tree's bark was worse than its bite...

because of a deprived childhood, the man must have "pined" for a tree of his own...

maybe the guy was just orna-mental...

the man was obviously fir-ious...
2001-12-21 04:34:42 PM  
ECPPunx: BLUE plastic? Matches grandma's hair!!! WAAAAHAHHAHHAHHAHA!!! Don't open it in doors, it's bad luck!!! Do you just close the ornaments into it? At 3 1/2 feet, what's the point? On the upside, you can recycle it.
2001-12-21 06:15:59 PM  
Ooohh..Can't hug these trees..hehe
2001-12-21 08:08:10 PM  
Beezulbob: Leave the "Louisiana" out of your comment...
2001-12-21 09:25:06 PM  
This IS the kid from the article all growd up now!!!!!! Tree farking will one day lead to violence, I've been saying this for years and no one will listen.
2001-12-21 09:58:24 PM  
Real remon it's way cool !! childish perhaps but cool. also like your acceptance speech.
