Hit me!



Since I'm working on a rather long post (well, at least in my head) I want some inspiration for shorter, snappy posts. Here is my proposal:


In the comment section name a crime and I will tell you a true and probably funny story about that crime. Sure the funny part might mean that the only person who is laughing is me. And maybe you'll inspire me to write something serious (it can happen).


Be creative, the only rule is this: no sex crimes. Nothing very funny about those. Also, if you are anonymous, add some initials or something. They don't even have to be yours.


And to add to the fun, or to torment you further, I'll attempt a bad poem on the topic of the crime your pick.


You name the crime, I'll make it rhyme
(or maybe it'll be a haiku so it won't rhyme, deal with it).


The gauntlet has been thrown!

For some reason recently here in Florida, all sorts of crime has been happening in Car Wash places all over the state. What is it about washing a car that incites folks to violence?

a funny 11-19

When I was in Spain many years ago, from my hotel room a pair of my black and red silk pajamas became missing. Never did find out who the thief was but I have my suspicions.

Jas said...

Hmmm, if I know my APD codes, 11-36 which may be involved with 10-60

Eric said...

J: An 11-36 is an old code for an animal problem and 10-60 is an old code for 'special traffic detail' like a funeral procession. Do you really want me to combine those (because I'm not sure I can).

Jas said...

Hmmm

No, how about a fascinating animal control story involving someone being arrested :)

Faith said...

lol ok I'm going to jump in here. How about a funny mental story. I have all kinds of those from my ex, so I'm curious as to what the ones from your part of the world are like.
