No spring for you!
The Renaissance lifted Western Man out of the bog whistle pig (if that's your real name). No need to continue worshipping low end rodentia. Leave interpreting the future via animal scat to the agricultural "societies" that still practice Santería. Tripping over animal parts while taking a pinch of snuff does my day not make.

What's wrong with a little Groundhog day fun? It doesn't hurt anybody. And a little town in Pennsylvania makes a few bucks. So what?

What I really miss are those red velvet Twinkies Walmart used to have. Sometimes they were still warm in the package.
Humm.… Maybe that was the body heat from the shoplifter they shot running out the fire exit? Yes? Yes!

LOL YES! YES! But a waste of a bullet. The red dye #40 would have killed him, eventually.

Please! Please! Where's your humanity!?! Oh... Sorry... thought you were wearing hotpants.
The horrors of Whoopie Pie fighting should not be visited upon your worst enemy. Typical bellicosity from a WalMartted Rascal riding banjo playing toeheaded peacenik Democrat.

You would win that bet. On the bright side, I can get around the kitchen to cook and do dishes again. We are talking about getting into the real shower.Its a claw foot tub so not so easy.No way to get comfortable for sleep yet. I can now bend down to pet my dogs as long as the quad cane is handy. My husband has been taking major care of them and me. The Bichon has cancer, we just learned. Tumor pressing on his colon. We finally got his colon working again and his rear legs but it does not look good. A very sad time for all of us.

"Man crashes car then defecates on roadside
February 03, 2013
A man was caught defecating on the side of the road early Saturday morning after crashing his car in Smithfield Township, police said.

He was traveling south on Route 209 at 2:40 a.m. Saturday when he crashed into a traffic signal, coming to a final rest near the intersection of 209 and Milford Road.

He fled the scene on foot and was found approximately 200 yards from the scene of the crash, defecating on the berm of the roadway with his car keys in hand.

The man was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash, and he was taken to Pocono Medical Center for treatment following the incident, police said.

Police did not specify where the man was from."

I thought the same thing. Not that it actually was Loose but that it fit his handle.
