Theevery could be the next groth industrty in Rutherford County. The sherrif Connors and his men love us theeves on account of when they found our storage units its sort of like them hittin the lottery and lots of goodies to take home. Then when we get out of the pen we have to work like dawgs to pay back the victums from the sweat of our browse. I work form daylight to dark and have paid about a hunnert dollers out of 15000tousand. And them detegtives chuckles up there sleeves at me and Ricky my lookout man and the owners who got took. I thank I'll run for sherrif. That's the best racket around here.

Hello, its me again, good old fast and loose Hammerick. They say I have napoleonick ambitions that stop at nothing.

Hey, don't look down on Ricky Darryl and Robert Paul. They and their crack ho's did us a lot of favors. High quality Snap-On tools with knurled extensions, fancy LED flashlights, and a big fat bottle of percodans. Never know what you might find in them hangers do you? One of our lucky men even ended up with a nice handheld aircraft radio so they can moniter them heatherns at the airport. It ain't hot as long as its in our possession.

On our salaries we just couldn't afford stuff like that otherwise.

Dayyum Rellerfud Caountys going belly up and caynt even hold on to its douche nozzle and skivvies manufacktcherers. Did Debbity Dufus Dee tazer the CEO in the crouch?

Looks like we are gonn to have to figger out new ways to make a living for our midle class wurkers in Farced City Spindell Heneredda and Rellerfudton.

Like I always say to the common scolds in the office the best racket around is in the corthouse and our Nottingham Sherff Jowls Conners and the house burgulars, and of course our copy machines kept humming and clicking off them dollers so's we kin redistribbit the sheeples proppitty.

As judge I took political chicanery to a new level. I know how to make hell on earth. I know how to waive your habeas corpus rights. Judges are never accountable for anything. They rule. I got sued by a wheelchaired old bag from Lenoir and she won but I never had to pay. The government paid everything. Now that's power for you.
If any of those newspaper reporters that have dogged me over the years ever appear in my courtroom I will fix them.
And don't call me Zero. I am a known quantity and the personification of cronyism. And now I'm old and hoary and ugly and facing eternity.

Leave Zoro alone. I'm a buddy of Zoro. If you want to get the statute of limitations extended, or visit some horrible sanction on your blindsided opponent, or have a nice ex parte talk for the purpose of cootering, or play a dirty trick on your enemy, or get a heart-balm verdict multiplied by a factor of ten in order to utterly destroy a $12-an-hour working man, or have someone arrested for the sole purpose of serving process on them, or have some tale told in court by the judge to flummox the opposition, or have your opponent's case dismissed ultra vires, or have an elderly tourist arrested and held without cause, or have some nonexistent law cited from the bench, or harass an old wheelchaired woman by holding her in the courtroom so long she urinates on herself, Zoro is the man. He may be a crook, but he's OUR crook.

You think of all the favors he's done us and the sacks of money he's made for us over the years. If you were in our clique, you'd love him too. Try to see it our way.
