Long live good ole Yankee gumption

















With your crutches of high-tech, scanner-proof firearms; School of the Americas training; stateless, shadowy conglomerate and/or military-industrial complex financial backing, what do you have to say for yourself now?

They don't call it "Hot in Cleveland" for nothing.

Cleveland is the new Baltimore. A city truly bizarre to its core and yet oddly charming.

It all started with that damned Rock and Roll Museum.

"Got a light?"

That's about all there is to say.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

I'm guessing that Kalid Mansour has a Ray's Famous connection, but I'm fuzzy on the details.

Take a bite out of crime!

Regards,

Tengrain

christopher, there's nothing charming about this weird ass place. Except for the one-legged thief.

mrmacrum, guess I better start packing heat, it's my mammon-given right to protect myself via superior firepower.

tengrain, why would an upscale establishment such as Famous Ray's stoop to using one-legged bandits in order to procure the freshest meats?

Sweet Jesus, tell me you don't own Legos. This is a Lego, isn't it? There is a certain perverse poetry to a legless Lego Pirate. Let go of my leggo. Got syrup?

Lisa said...

I wonder how I'd look with a pegleg....

Tim said...

What the Article failed to mention,said felon when by the alias

Lucky..

Tengrain said...

Tim -

I thought if said his alias was Lefty.

Regards,

Tengrain

Randal Graves said...

LBR, if you despise Legos, I'm afraid we must cease our friendship. Though bonus points for the maple syrup praise.

lisa, don't forget the eyepatch and plastic kitsch parrot.

tim, that cannot be divulged for reasons of national security.

tengrain, the Marathon Man.

I knew it! Watch out for those sleazy criminals in wheelchairs, on crutches, using a cane, etc. They're all faking it so they can throw you off guard and then rob you.

Be proactive. When you see somebody in a wheelchair, punch his lights out before he can pull a fast one on you.

S.W. Anderson said...

Fortunately for all concerned, the perp wasn't wearing a bomb vest and his wheelchair wasn't equipped with explosives. So, Dick Cheney and the rest of the crackpot crusaders can relax.

Well, unless it comes out the Cleveland P.D. didn't subject this jackal to some enhanced interrogation techniques before reading him his rights.

I wish I had a one legged boyfriend that would beat people up for me.

He was probably trying to get enough money to pay for one of those motorized wheelchairs so he could hold up drive-throughs next.

Cormac Brown said...

All the one-legged robbers
The old ladies they like to clobber
Say, "Cleveland rocks, Cleveland rocks."

Randal Graves said...

tom, spoken like a true patriot.

SWA, in light of what a dear brother in antityrranical blood hath just spake, I am now angry because if you are right, the Manchurians have won.

sunshine, we know which leg you speak of, Canadian deviant, but I repeat myself.

See what socialism does?

nunly, and of course, law enforcement turns down his help. See what happens the next time a cat gets stuck in a tree.

susan, as long as he doesn't eat any of the food.

And Cormac wins the thread!

Beach Bum said...

That's it then, all amputees will now be sent to Gitmo.

Cormac Brown said...

"And Cormac wins the thread!"

Yay! What do I get? The ashes that were once a LeBron jersey? The chance to personally fire Mangini? Because I'd really prefer the latter.
