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.

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."

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  [:)]

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?

We are in the midst of an ongoing debate regarding grizzly bears here. Apparently, according to federal law, you have to get permission from a federal government representative to shoot a grizzly bear before it eats you.

Someone suggested in our local paper that we could solve two problems simultaneously by relocating the grizzlies to Washington DC.

(I suspect our lawmakers have been spending too much time watching Yogi and Boo-Boo.)
