Reminds me of the Al Czervick line from Caddy Shack:

Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?
[looks at Judge Smails, who's wearing the same hat]

Al Czervik: Oh, it looks good on you though.

I do not understand why so many of you think this is funny! Something is really wrong for this man to rob a bank---maybe he is about to have his home foreclosed on or he has not had a meal for a while, maybe he can't find a job. The ones that find this funny are really a bunch of sorry bastards.

Is that Bobby Moak behind those shades? After all his years of robbing the taxpayers maybe he needed a quick fix?

10:57, based on photographic evidence, it doesn't appear to be a matter of him not having "a meal for a while" ...

10:57, you have more compassion than most of us. I do not ever really feel sorry for the perpetrator who brandishes a semi-automatic gun in a bank. I feel sorry for any other customers who had one of the scares of their lives and the bank tellers who probably didn't sleep last night. I feel sorry for the young policeman answering this alarm who could have been killed or forced to kill the robber.

Many times bank robbers fly in from somewhere else take money and go home. They have too much pride to reduce their current way of life, so they take what isn't theirs. I chose to feel compassion for those with leukemia or cancer or mental illness.

Why do I think that 10:57 is a Bernie Sanders supporter?

Yeah. I'm not buying the hadn't had a meal lately theory. Looks like the guy from Andy Griffith show that duped Barney.

He looks like a broke realestate developer I know just trying to get enough money to make payroll or an interest payment.

Fat People get hungry too. He looks like a guy from Grenada. That's how they dress and that's how limited their foresight is.

Probably not local. Just passing by looking for a small town to rob. Was the Madison liquor store robber ever found?

Mayberry said...

12:11, WHICH guy that duped Barney? There must have been hundreds of them....

Anonymous said...

@10:57 - nobody ever said that about a black dude robbing a bank. Then it's all about shooting them down like a dog.

Felder???!!! Is that you????

"The guy that duped Barney". Lesee, let me count the hundreds. This could actually be the Japanese judo instructor who dressed in a suit and white Panama hat in order to trick the guy who intended to beat Barney up. Or, hell, it could be John Arthur Eaves who was earlier tooling around town in a Corvette.

He ain't missed no meals though, for sure. But, no matter what or who, it's all the fault of society.

He certainly has that "nouveau riche suburbanite" look down. Someone has to know this guy.

Could be the OL "coach" from State. Of course, he'd be a multiple offender. He's been robbing State blind for years.

Hut Hut.. said...

5:09; State has changed second level coaches like underwear. Actually he looks more like Houston Nutt.

Go see 'Hell Or High Water' now playing on the big screen. This guy might be like one of those guys in the film who were robbing banks.

It was a good movie and Jeff Bridges plays old guy roles very convincingly. I think JJ demographic would enjoy it.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
