Heh heh Xpress Lube

Is that like the frenzied rummaging through your nightstand for the KY and mad dash back into bed before your girlfriend sobers up enough to re-consider trying anal?

This guy was taking his cue from Uncle Jimbo on South Park.

Yo Neccesito, Los Fireworkos Spectacularrrrrrrr.

"He said he had enough stuff in the bag to level the place and half of the beach," said Detective T.L. Prescott.

Hmmm.. how does one level the beach?

And when a woman asks you to stop hitting her, hit her 3 more times and trash her car.

this made me laugh more...

Who: Karl Lenhoff, 45, Orangedale. Charge: Obtaining a controlled substance by fraud- hydrocodone. (SJCSO)

Weird, just drove back to New York from St. Augustine. Somehow this story doesn't surprise me.

Sounds like the cops are luggage terrorists...."Dontchu come into mah town with luggage or we'll blow it up real good! Yeeeehawwwww!!!"

Marge, don't discourage the boy. Weaseling out of things is what separates us from animals...except the weasel.
2003-04-18 03:55:09 PM  
ah, right down the road... heh- stupid fellow floridians.

Reading the police blotter always makes me want to file for an exemption from the human race.

Talk about packing some heat.
2003-04-18 03:57:57 PM  
The funny thing is, it was only clothes.

What: Three bottles of gin, a bottle of scotch whiskey and four bottles of assorted liquor. Value: $546. Where, when: Broudy's Liquor Store on Thursday morning. (SJCSO)

What: Beer. Value: $10. Where, when: Lil Champ on Wednesday. (SABPD)

The best kind of detonation end up with peoples underwear all over the beach.

"The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office bomb squad was called for the third time in 10 days to detonate a suspicious item Tuesday morning..."

Why after two-plus years it still confuses me how Florida wound up to be the swing state in the election of Dubya. I think before the next election we just should be done with Florida and annex them to Cuba. At least our invasion of Cuba can start on land.

I think the writer must be british, only in england would a writer call a 410 a rifle.
2003-04-18 04:11:47 PM  
St. Augustine is a scary place. Way too much like Stepford.
2003-04-18 04:13:45 PM  
Isn't a bomb squad supposed to stop things from being blown up?

It's like bizarro world.

...While detonating the backpack, which turned out to be carrying clothes...

...Tuesday's arrest came after the bomb squad was called to Ponte Vedra Beach on Monday to blow up a suspicious Styrofoam cooler that turned out to be holding orange juice and salad...

...During the afternoon of April 6, the bomb squad detonated a strange suitcase left near the dumpsters at the Amoco gas station at S.R. A1A and Pope Road...

Icecycle - I was going to say something about that too. a .410 is NOT a rifle.

oh and Nitroduck - that bottle of scotch could have been worth around ~$250 or so just by itself. And if the gin they took was like Sapphire then they are about $50 a pop. Also depends on what kind of "assorted liquor" they took in conjunction... but just based off of price it looks like someone was hitting the top shelf stuff.
2003-04-18 04:36:46 PM  
another interesting way to toss a salad...
2003-04-18 05:02:41 PM  
Down the page...
What is "false imprisonment?" Running your own, competetive county jail next door to the real one?
2003-04-18 05:18:41 PM  
No no, I don't have explosives. I'm in a hurry because I have 'explosive' diarrhea.
2003-04-18 05:20:41 PM  
Another fellow Floridian here - just 20 minutes away from St. Augustine...

Skinink -

You can kiss my fine white southern arse... The whole election crap was just cuz a bunch of old geezers live in southern florida. They can't drive, they can't see (but somehow still TRY to drive) and they damn sure don't need to be votin!!

"He said he had enough stuff in the bag to level the place and half of the beach."

The last time I checked the WHOLE beach is level.

the guys name is Bobo.

how appropriate.

"Prescott said before Sept. 11, 2001, the officers would probably have approached the man on the street and opened the backpack. Times have changed, he said."

far past time for things to change back. a bit (lot) of common sense would go a long way here. three times in ten days? that's a bunch of blowing up.
2003-04-18 05:55:31 PM  
God, I love living here in St. Aug. If it's not a freezer full of dead dogs it's some street wacko. To say nothing of good restaurants and bars. And it's not in Jacksonville.

"Officers found the unloaded .410-caliber rifle in the closet"

jebis chlist!

Too bad he wasn't driving a car.

You folks do know that airbags deploy with the aid of an explosive, right?

If I'm ever stopped and asked if I have any explosives in the car, the only truthful answer is YES.

I'm sure hilarity will ensue.
