Poop Scoop - You Must be Nucking Futs!

I was driving along the backstreets of waldo / brookside today and I saw a woman with a large black lab (older lab / fat) - and the dog was taking a huge dump. Tons of cars going by, the woman was trying not to look too embarrassed. The dog taking a dump wasn't what got me to write this blog (although I am pretty simple minded), it was the fact that the lady was standing there with a frickin' plastic baggy......waiting.....for the dog to finish.............

So she could pick up the turds!

You've GOT to be kidding me. If you are out there picking up your dogs turds, I'm sorry but that's got to be f*cking you up mentally. It doesn't get much lower than that son.

Cassel's Injury 2 - 4 Weeks

Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel's mystery injury is a strained medial collateral ligament that will keep him out for 2 - 4 games, announced just minutes ago from Chiefs officials.

Cassel sustained a game-ending injury after just a few plays on Saturday night, leaving the Chiefs with only a stubborn and repetitive running game to show the fans. The Chiefs game plan was going to feature the run and sprinkle in some Bowe, Lelie, Engram and Bradley. When Cassel went down it seemed that the Chiefs abandoned their passing game. This was most likely a knee jerk reaction by the coaching staff as Thigpen actually looked pretty good when they finally gave him a chance in the 2nd half. Instead, the Chiefs literally called the same flat running play 12 times in a row. Seriously, they called 12 running plays in a row. What is this, Tecmo Bowl 1992?

Chiefs fans booed relentlessly throughout the game. Granted, the Chief's best chance to win will be on the ground, but it would have made the fans happy to see a couple of long chucks down the field or a risky trick play.

Plaza Apartment Residents Complain of Foul Smell

Residents at 621 Regis, a large apartment building on the Plaza just off of Ward Parkway, have been complaining of a foul smell coming from one of the apartments on the 6th Floor for the last week.

The cause of the smell was uncovered at 3:35pm today when police entered the apartment to find a the dead body of a middle aged male.

Neighbors on either side of the victim reported that he had often called for an ambulance to take him to the hospital for unknown reasons. The man appeared to be fine during the day and then he would become loud and incoherent at night - and occasionally rushed to the hospital.

Either the gentleman had a medical condition and should not have been left alone, or he voluntarily took his own life with alcohol or medication. There are no signs of foul play and the fact that his body had been apparently decaying in the apartment for days would suggest that he was alone at the time of his death.

Missouri Lawmakers Error and Ban Tupperware on Missouri Waterways

Earlier in the year, Missouri lawmakers passed a law to ban tupperware on Missouri's waterways. You're asking yourself, "Why would you ban tupperware." I know I did. Answer: your Missouri Lawmakers are as ignorant and care about as much as politicians throughout the country. The law, which banned tupperware, was actually aimed at banning styrofoam. Namely, those cheap styrofoam coolers used by people who got a sudden itch to keep beer cold and trailer trash. The idea was to ban such coolers that are left, abandoned, or broken and cause pollution on Missouri lakes and rivers.

While I strongly agree with the concept, how in the world could this be overlooked by the number of people that should have read this bill throughout. These are the people we elect and pay to represent us and they can't even take the time, or have a member of their staff take time, to read a bill they are voting for or against on behalf of the people they represent. Even worse, the Missouri State Water Patrol says they have no intention of enforcing this law. I agree, it would be stupid to try to enforce this law, but how many others are they going to ignore as well. Just goes to show you that in the end, none of it really matters.

I find this absolutely unacceptable. However, I also find it a sign of the times. I have some news for you. Your elected officials do not care about you. They care about money. They care about moving up in the system. They care about free bees. Yes, there is the token honest politician peppered in among the thieves, but they are few and far between. Years ago, I had a political science professor show the movie The Distinguished Gentleman in one of our classes. The movie starred Eddie Murphy and it kind of perplexed me at first. At the conclusion of the viewing, the professor, a long time political cog, let the class know that the movie defined how our political system really worked. If you haven't scene it, I highly recommend it. A good movie in it's own right, it makes a good point.

Regardless of your political views, republican or democrat or a mind of your own, this is shameful. If you live in Missouri, I would highly recommend contacting any congress person that represents you and let them know you think this is ridiculous. Am I making too big of a deal of this? Maybe. Take a minute to think if this had been something else that is more important such as sexual predators, illegal narcotics, or explosives. Hopefully, that woke you up if you needed it. While this was erroneous and fairly inconsequential, it could have been a very big oversight.
