Pot-growing trailer stolen from Denver trade show

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110406/us_nm/us_marijuana_colorado


Can't quite put my finger on why, but there is something about this that strikes me as quite amusing.

Some wag asked in the comments, "Was it hitched up behind Willie Nelson's tour bus?"

The trailer is valued at $50,000, and there was no marijuana inside the vehicle, he said.
  ...there will be soon. 

I can just envisage a cheech & chong pair telling their friends "you won't believe what we liberated from a trade fair..."

An acquaintance of mine knows this guy that has a brother who has a unique goose-neck trailer for sale. Should I buy it?

Were you thinking of using it for Meals On Wheels? It would be a great asset to your community if you were.

Difficult to get usable fingerprints off paper, especially after it has been circulated. Perhaps they wanted to get the Columbian marching powder residues off it instead.

"He said law enforcement officers delivered a fake notification to Steele at his home just before arresting him, reporting his wife had been killed. Sotka said he had decided to do this to see how Steele would react.

Then, Sotka said they broke the news that they knew of the alleged murder-for-hire plot and investigators had spoken with Fairfax. At this point, Sotka and other law enforcement officials at Steele's house immediately could smell fecal matter in the air and Sotka said he believed Steele had "defecated" in his pants."

All about pigs. I'm sure there must be a moral or two in here.

A lot of people are outraged because they think this new statue of Pope John Paul II is really ugly. Some have even suggested it looks like Mussolini, although, in some of the shots it reminds me more of Winston Churchill. See what I mean?

The statue looks like a novelty telephone booth, or urinal  :)

[telephone booths also double as public urinals in the UK]

The same thought crossed my mind, but why would the sculptor stick Winston Churhill's head on top?

The giant scale combined with the "let me conceal you under my cloak" pose seems in poor taste given the recent bad publicity about RC priests and children.

Whilst on the topic of poor taste, they recently dug J-PII up, (he was barely cold) ... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-13243797

Oh no! I wish you hadn't said that. I found myself wondering if it could be a raincoat rather than a cloak.

Something tells me they'll be melting it down and starting over quite soon.

Ahh... yes...
Perhaps I should write to the Vatican and ask if I can have a piece of the dead pope.  What should I ask for?  A finger or a toe?  What would be most likely to bring me eternal salvation?

From these images JPII may have gone to the burny place.

AFP - "Pressure mounts on Weiner as new photos emerge"

Well, I imagine it would.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20110612/ts_alt_afp/uspoliticsinternetsex_20110612205035

I don't know if anyone outside the US is following this story, but it's a dream come true for journalists and late night TV hosts.

She's very well educated, and she gets around too. Here she is again - this time in New York.
