I guess those communities said Nono to the convo and Coco with the Popo and the Yoyo in City Hall.

So Coco wit da Popo is a Nogo? Did the Dodo get a Bobo?

No sir, the leadership in the City of Jackson is serious about this problem. The Coco with the Popo just wasn't dignified enough. The mayor has a better idea. The city us going to spend $4 million of that bond money on a 3 day long urban music festival at the convention center. It's going to be tied into his anti-crime agenda. The tickets will be free and the Convention center will turn a profit in 2019. Soak up that gravy.

If the mayors office steals this idea I'm going to sue.

What will version 2 be? Figs with the Pigs?

This circus is becoming as embarrassing as the bullshit Sigman keeps coming up for the Reservoir property. Lots of half-hatched ideas but nothing ever comes to fruition. Meanwhile, PERS looms large.

v2.0 will be chops with the cops.

Or ham with the man.

Bada bing.

Hoping both missed sessions will be rescheduled at the Jackson Zoo

Maybe the coco was just not in the budget.
There is about to be a new batch of patrol cars to hit the Jackson pothole filled roads.
On the backside of the Ford dealer in Brandon is a row of new vehicles being prepared for the Jackson PoPo to destroy.

Agreed @4:55 But what about that trashy reality show Sigman & his minions approved? (& "got paid very very well for") What an embarrassment for all of MS!!

Did anyone think a "Cops and Robbers High Tea" had success written all over it? The mayor is unfit to serve as the mayor and the people who serve up his "hot chocolate" are unfit to serve as staff. There you are.

You just can't make this stuff up.

I didn't know Sigman had a reality show. Missed that one.

The temptation is mighty to quip something like, "what's the matter couldn't get the metal detectors hooked up in time?"

But that would be a cheap shot and beneath the dignity of even an anonymous post.

Yep, I had a bag of marshmellows and a pack of Oreos all ready to share with the attendees. Checking in the Clarion Ledger for a headline CoCo with PoPo a NoNo.

It’s interesting that the commentators are missing the fact that it least they are trying. The thinking (I assume) is meet them where they are. Some folk just complain and bash Jackson. That’s cool but it doesn’t get anything done. These sessions might not either but they are trying. Not doing the same ole thing.

Not doing the same ole thing.

BS. It IS the "same ole thing". This community meeting garbage has been tried and retried and retried again for two decades. What has it produced? NOTHING.

Now suddenly Mayor Gum Flapper comes along and concludes that the problem all along has been one of too little communication? Where the hell has he been because he sure hasn't been paying attention to what has and has not been going on in Jackson.

We get it. Antar Lumumba LOVES endless talk (but no action) where he stands at the front of the room preening and believing himself to be some sort of radical intellectual droning on about stuff (to the fawning cult that follows him around) for which he himself has ZERO experience.

Yes, MORE talk from Antar. That sure as hell will fix things.

Just spare us this at.least.they.are.trying.not.the.same.old.thing crap. Because IT IS CRAP.

Loan me $10,000.00 and don't get mad if all I do is "try" to pay it back. Because it's the thought that counts.

You must have missed that disaster filmed out at Timberlake Campground about a polygamist family. You can catch it every Sunday night on TLC....it sure does MS proud!!

John said...

If the people who organized this event had named it something other than "Coco with the Popo", maybe more people would have shown an interest.

Maybe they didn't know that Coco is spelled "C O C O A".

The name "Coco" (Portuguese for " coconut") is a common Northeastern Brazilian slang for head, referring to the fact that song lyrics are often improvised. ... Coco is also alternatively known as "embolada" (another slang word, meaning "entangling", referring to the fast, slurred, machine-gun style of singing).

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.
