I can never read newspaper comment threads again

I may never read newspaper comment threads again.

Here is a run of the mill story about a young lady who had contraband in her cooch1 (Can I say “cooch” here?) and then told the police it wasn’t hers. This occurs more often than one would think, maybe they belong to a boyfriend who is so addled with drugs as to think this is a secure hiding place?

But I digress. I read the comments mainly because I was struck2 by how very pleased with herself she seemed to be in her mugshot. This comment from “OuttaSpc” stopped me in my tracks;

At first I thought “you’ve got to be kidding me,” but I just checked my OWN private area and I found a nylon spatula, some Flintstone’s vitamins, a cordless drill, and a copy of the St. Pete Times from 19463.

What a mysterious world we live in. 😉

… Now how will anyone top that?

1 The story can be found at Bradenton.com. I found it via one of my favorite weird news websites, ObscureStore.com.

2 Didn’t know if I was “Stricken” or “Struck” so I had to Consult with WSU. I still don’t think it looks right. Maybe next time, I will be “flabbergasted”.

3 This violated the “Rule of Threes”, which just goes to show, rules are made to be broken.

    This is too funny.

    I’m “outtaspc” and I’m the one that made that comment in my local paper. And here it is, months later, and I decided to Google my screen name…only to discover your blog post about my post.

    Thanks for commenting about it. It made my day! 🙂
