Angry dogs (lacking fists) have no choice but to bite, but then sometimes angry humans prefer biting, like this Pennsylvania man who was stewing about Obama (or this Univ. of Florida fan who was ticked that her husband had dissed the Gators). Times Leader (Wilkes-Barre) /// WJXT-TV (Jacksonville)

A hard life's work: 73 yrs old, a house with 100 tons of rubbish (including six dog skeletons). (Bonus: As the local gov't cleaning crew was called in, he got all upset with a neighbor for being critical of his untidiness.) Daily Mail

Little House on the Prairie reruns on TV in Finland must be rated "adults only" (Seriously) (But only because the gov't charges producers too much money to screen each program and put an age rating on it, so if you bypass that, you get "adults only"). Reuters

Recurring and recurring: Another British local council (Salisbury) says that from now on, everybody use "colour visual impairment" because the common term for that would offend blind people (whereupon the Royal Nat'l Institute for the Blind got offended that anyone would think such a stupid thing would offend them).

Best Weekend Mugshots Chattanooga hooker number 9 looks so happy to be off the street. Maybe it's the prospect of three squares a day. What the hell is that on her chin?

CVI Finally it takes the blind to lead the way on decrying stupidity!

Chattanooga I must apologize to Cincinnati as I erroneously mixed it up with Chattanooga. But, in my defense: they're bot "C" words.
#6 is so stoned she's out of focus and #9 thinks it a scouting session for America's Next Top Model!

Shoes No price tags!

I am starting to really feel sorry for the sexually deprived men of Chattanooga. A good way to become rich a top quality whore house in Chattanooga. I've even got a possible name...The Chattanoogie Choo Choo.

Pennsylvania man Ok, so the old guy deserves to be arrested but can you really charge someone with public drunkenness when they are in a bar?

Mind you, I am from New Orleans but come on!

Some of those shoes are pretty neat.

Smoking Gun mugshot - I think there's something that looks like that in the game/movie Doom, or any of the ...... of The Dead movies

What's weird about the 4th shoe from the bottom in part one? Above the glass one...

Jules - How's butt ugly. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Even if the beholder has bad taste. 😉

Hey Maxx, if the state in question is anything like the province of Ontario, technically it is illegal to get drunk in a bar. They are supposed to only serve drinks until you get happy. In reality it's impossible to enforce the law, so it's reserved for the most boisterous and fun-loving offenders.

I agree the rocks on it are odd, but I like the shape of it. Reminds me of something historical, egyptian or greek perhaps. On the other hand it's really early and I'm not quite awake.
Posted by Jules in Connecticut on 11/11/08 at 08:14 AM
Jules - I was just joking with you. I agree that it is kind of egyptian looking and out of all the shoes shown they are the most normal.
