the Mongols - This could be the way to bring gangs down. Hit 'em in their logo.

the Mongols Seems a bit over zealous thinking to confiscate the whole vest when the patches are NOT an integral part of the vest. Let's take the bikes and pass them around!

Dog with Alzheimer's Sounds like he thought he was Jesus!

huffing You're implying that IF physics were taught these clowns would have benefited how?

banana plants Betcha' a guy could have pulled this one off!

and hung over her hips.

I'm so bad...
