Weird News: Ahem, Ahum the Dude Slipped and Fell

Tis the season to be jolly, ya know.  My morning routine usually consists of wading through piles of emails deleting half of them before reading the stuff I think is important.  Then, I try to pick something interesting out of what's left to open first.  There's no sense starting off your day reading the boring material.  I save that for around lunchtime.  It helps prepare me for my midday power nap.
  
                              Well, my cousin Paul emailed me this weird news that just cracked me up.

              The old geezer is sort of a redneck, ahem, ahum, like me and he knew I'd enjoy this immensely.

It's about a dude out shopping for a computer in Augusta, Georgia, USA.

Only he wasn't planning on paying so, slipped a laptop under his jacket.  Confronted by an employee, the dude knocks him down, pulls a knife and heads for the door.

Four United States Marines were just outside doing what they always do around Christmas time.  They were  collecting Toys for Tots.

They stopped the dude.

He stabbed one of them.

That's about the time he slipped and fell off the city sidewalk

Poor feller got two broken arms, a broken ankle, broken leg, some missing teeth, multiple contusions and lacerations, broken nose and jaw and maybe, some cracked ribs.

"City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile"

Now, I got that crazy SILVER BELLS TUNE stuck in my head.

Thanks, Paul and the US Marines for bringing me some early Christmas smiles.
