I had maple syrup poured all over my legs once, and my legs got stuck together and wouldn't come apart.

Maple syrup is like crack, not meth.

The article read incorrectly - what it should have said is;

Meth lab [successfully] disguised as Maple Syrup operation.

The best way to find a meth lab is to look for the burning building....

Which explains why this homemade syrup I got the other day tastes so odd.

In a related story, the police also raided the local bakery, stating that the powdered sugar looked suspiciously like cocaine.

I'd have to defer to your MO expertise in all things drug-related. On a prior business trip to the Ozarks, one of the locals said it'd be difficult to not hit a meth lad if you randomly threw a rock into a heavily wooded area there. LOL

Unfortunately, you are correct about Missouri and meth. The county that I'm right next to with my property is one of the worst as far as 'cookers'.

One of the other counties is sometimes jokingly referred to as 'Cranklin' County instead of Franklin.

In another related story, the same officers made a panty raid on a local girls' college dorm, concerned about an anonymous tip that there was a prostituition ring. Instead, all they found were scantily clad, drunk college girls having pillow fights, that would do it for free.

Sadly, that makes sense. There would be a ready nearby market for it in the nearby St. Louis Metroplex. It's everywhere though. Building in a "nice" neighborhood across the street from work (several States N of you) recently burst into flames. It was reportedly meth-related.

Wow, what a coincidence! I LOVE pillow fights with drunk, scantily-clad college girls that will do it for free.
