Bloviating Zeppelin: You're Kidding Me

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

You're Kidding Me

Someone has been calling grocery stores and discount stores around the US, threatening to blow up employees and customers via some kind of hidden bomb, if the employees don't wire money to an overseas account.

NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — Large grocery and discount stores across the country have been targeted by a caller who threatens to blow up shoppers and workers with a bomb if employees fail to wire money to an account overseas, authorities said. Frightened workers have wired thousands of dollars — and in one case took off their clothes — to placate a caller who said he was watching them but may have been thousands of miles away.

Okay, so you're in a store. The manager shuts the front doors and screams: "Everyone, listen, listen! A man has called to say that there is a bomb in the store and it'll detonate unless we all take off our clothes!"

Do you:

A: Laugh until you stop;
B: Punch Manager in face;
C: State: "____ you."
D: Walk out the door or break the glass in order to do so;
E: All of the above.


The obvious answer is -- well, you know.

While odds are 10000 to 1 that it's a hoax, there are individuals who would try to do it. I would consider it so unlikely as to do no more than alert the authorities.

Take your clothes off, grab a bottle of Booze, get bombed and hope you get lucky.

Sounds like a hell of a way to spend the afternoon.

Eh. . .perhaps someone other than myself, Fred. . .

Shoprat: I'm kinda liking Ranando's solution.

It still amazes me that there are people in this nation stupid enough to comply -- particularly with the "clothing optional" part.

I suppose that list wasn't in any particular order...

This is my order.
A:State: "F-K you."
B:Punch Manager in face
C:Think WTF?? as you see Fred waving his weeny around and laugh until you stop.
D:Walk out the door shaking your head thinking:"Only Fred." or break the glass in order to do so.
E:In either case, buy the man a beer for turning a BS day into something to laugh about.

LOL! Hysterical comments!

Dang, BZ! I hadn't heard about them being asked to remove their clothing and complying. Yep! I'd say that's pretty stupid!

For heaven's sake! Is everyone in America ruining their brains with drugs? Are the authorities certain the manager didn't add that bit about removing their clothing?
