Eek!

Some college kid found a round-"a" as in ONE round--of .45 acp in a washing machine. After a moment's break to soil himself and have a good cry, he apparently called the campus police, who shrieked like girls for the real police, who brought in "bomb-sniffing dogs" to search out any additional rounds of ammunition, or the .45-caliber assault weapons that fire them.

I'm guessing it took a long time to get the dogs in; you'd have to find one that wasn't trained to find pot, or you'd be in that dorm for days.

"45-caliber bullets are used in assault weapons such as handguns,"

Seriously? Shut up, sissy.

Best and most direct response I've read yet.

Srsly. I think that H. Sap. Sap. is actually diverging into separate species. I literally cannot imagine that kind of reaction to... to... well, anything. I've stumbled across live, pissed-off copperheads in the woods as a child with less fuss than that...

Morlocks and Eloi?

It's the sort of weenie reaction you expect from the UK.

That "Morlocks vs Eloi" thing has always creeped me out. The Eloi I get, they're fluffy and happy and believe in the promise of rainbow-scented unicorns from young, telegenic politicians. Fine. But I'm not sure I like being compared to a Morlock. I'm pretty sure I don't want to live on a diet of Illinois Eloi.

I checked all my .45 ACP rounds and the tiny little tags on them all say dry clean only. (insert rimshot here)

What was the perpetrator of this laundry fiasco thinking? That .45 could have shrunk down to a 22LR if the warm wash cycle was used instead of cold! (taaaa dummmmmm!)

That is obviously a single shot washing machine, with only one round able to be loaded at a time. Either that or someone took the laundry room magazines. (I expect only mild laughter for this one, because you have to think about it more.)

I checked just now, and my washing machine can hold a heck of a lot more than one .45 round. In fact, I'd go so far as to claim it can hold a whole load of ammo.

Thank you, I'll be here all week. Try the veal.....

Huh? .45 Assault weapon? Geez, I guess somebody has one of those illegal Thompson Sub-guns stuffed in their matress in the dorm.

We're still wondering what the technical definition of "assault weapon" is...

You know, I could really use a good friend. The kind of friend who doesn't mind hiding the occasional ambiguous package for a few days and doesn't get all weepy when he has to lie to a cop or two.

Are you that guy?

Don Gwinn said...

Hello?

I'm starting to think he never really intended us to be friends at all.

Finding a .45 in my wash would have been a lot less stressful than the empty beer bottle and the beer flavored clothing I once encountered during college...
