Don't Do It


In light of recent and past events at my former abode, namely the place burning down and the earlier burglary  where I lost the best guns I had, I have decided to issue a declaration. It seems that making businesses and public places gun free zones is considered a valid strategy to prevent criminals from breaking laws, so therefore I am adopting their tactics for use for myself.

From Hereon, I Declare My Current (and Any Future Domiciles) Abode To Be A Robbery And Fire Free Zone.

I expect this measure will be as fully successful for me as it has for those who have preceded me in using this grand and highly effective idea. Perhaps I can find some who will join me in a zenlike gathering of like minded individuals to, as a group, think positive thoughts to help universal karma make it so.

aha, it's called "vigil".
I remember seeing them on TV right after 9/11: adults, men among them, holding hands and candles, formed circles and chanted nonsense.

My immediate thought was "brainless mice".

and another thing I remember: on online comment threads, among endless idiotic hand-wringing and self-flagellation appeared some Russian immigrant (a girl, if I remember correctly), with photoshopped photo of Twins into a middle finger to muslim scam and a message: "next one will be higher and better" - and boy how ashamed and terrified of her reaction were they! she was practically ostracized.

Jeffro, I like your idea! I like it so much, that I'm going to use the same idea, only in reverse.

I hereby declare that my environs shall be an abundant single women zone.

Jeffro, you're a true genius!

OTOH, I am for thinking you - jed - are the true genius, because you have taken my simple idea and expanded it into a new and very admirable area. What a great idea!

This is OT... but Happy birthday! It is Today, 27th, right?

Jeffro said...

Yes it is, Jena!

Belated happy birthday! Mine was on the 13th, but I didn't tell anyone. How did you do on the tennis ball course?

Jeffro said...

Thanks, Bob! I updated the post a little while ago in the comments.

Oh, and sheesh! Where in the wild wild world of sports are my manners? Happy Belated Birthday to you, Bob!
