Deep fried pizza - does it come with bacon?

Bathroom arrest - Which crack did he smell?

Good samaritan gets ticket - Isn't it great how our country rewards those that help others?

F-State police chase - The cops here have a very clear policy; no crime is too small to risk collateral damage.

Cold Cape Cod car - he should have had the dealer install the optional fireplace.

After reading a couple different articles, I don't think the tinted window car was even aware there was a chase. The cop passed him and turned in a high speed attempt to catch up to the "perp".

I still don't get the lesson learned part of the Cop Smelling a Mans Crack. how can you smell anything other than aged rancid piss in a public restroom. I am willing to say the smell of crack was probably an improvement. Now, I'm not advocating crack usage but I think the cop was upset because he had no takers on his wide stance and foot tapping.

Officer Kilpatrick: I'm sure he's a Great Officer with Great judgement Keeping the Public safe from all of those "TINT THUGS". The illegal window tinting underworld should take notice ..."WE'RE ON TO YOU! AND WE DON'T CARE WHO GETS IN OUR WAY!!"

"Cop Makes Arrest in Bathroom After Smelling Crack" - :lol:

And hey, I live in North Carolina. I have to say that article doesn't surprise me one bit.

I was going to point out that the Scots've been frying Pizza for years, but the article already did. How is this much worse than fried Snickers or Mars bars, Twinkies, Dill Pickles, Oreos, Cupcakes, Tootsie Rolls, S'mores, or whatever else you can find stuck on a stick, dipped in batter & fried at your local county fair?

Damn, now I made myself hungry...

pizza- it doesn't sound good to me. freddie, it isn't any worse or any better either, and fried candy bars don't sound great either.

crack- and the cop was heard to utter,'i love the smell of crack in the morning.'

jaywalking- must have been the end of the month, ticket quota you know.

tint- sounds like that cop was itching for the chance to be in a high speed chase and found out he was illequiped to drive at those speeds. unfortunate for the 86 yr old man.

tainted meds- you would think that as much as we pay for healthcare we could have some basic safety from contamination. but then i guess you'd be wrong. lovely.

cape cod- natural selection at work!

that's a brilliant way to hire.
'but why did you hire an economist as a emergency room doctor?'
'well, he had great credentials and his resume was top notch. besides he applied.'
gee df i'd worry about my own credentials if they did hire me. 😊

she wasn't qualified for the position and she stole from the hospital so she deserved to be fired. but i wonder why a qualified person with credetials and skill would be denied because of being trans gender. it sounds like simple descrimination really. but then they will rarely find out the secrets of honest individuals since they appearently don't do background checks. 😊

starthrower, df lives in new zealand not canada. and i wonder too how far the descrimination goes.

i defended you df, i told 'em you ain't no stinkin' canadian ay.(just kidding canadians) 😉 a legal and regulated sex industry is quite progressive. i'm sure it helps keep the number of std down. i've never heard of anyone here being restricted from working in healthcare due to sex change or having worked in the sex industry. maybe it happens but i doubt it because it would make the news. thanks for the clarification sweetie. 😊
