I hit him upside the face and the potatoes went all over him

Well, you had me with "I hit him upside the face. . . " but the vidclip isn't at all what I expected. What a remarkable and admirable old guy! Charlie, indeed.

Impressive old guy!

Good story but anyone who keeps a pitch fork in the kitchen and wants to be buried with a frying pan named Charlie, is a nut case.

Ms Amanda said...

Bill, I absolutely adore your response! It make me chuckle with glee!

Florida crackers scare me.

"Got this pitchfork...and went to work on him". Priceless.

Oh, and, Tootie's hot. That is all.

Makes me wonder if they found the guy that broke in the house. How hard can it be to find a guy with frying pan scares on the head and pitchfork holes in his body? OK who is going to propose a law outlawing pitchforks in the kitchen?

I am sorry that my first comment was racist. I am trying to think what I really meant to say.

Not many live to be 91, so undoubtedly Bobby Smith can teach me something, maybe even a lot. He has a certain charm.

However, that he continued to "go to town" on the guy with a pitchfork after a red-hot frying pan took him to his knees is over-the-top, you dig? (Always love a stupid pun)

Mettle is admirable, but sensibility and yield are, too.
Vigilante justice with a pitchfork and ignorance in its many forms scare me.

On behalf of crackers everywhere, your apology is unnecessary, but appreciated. It has long been acceptable and politically correct to slur whitey. Diversity to me means "not me." And I could not care less.

What is very disturbing to me is your take on castle defense. An armed robber in excellent physical condition breaches a concrete wall and begins an assault on two elderly Citizens. No way of telling where the perp intended to go in his rampage, up to and including rape and murder.
Fuck that piece of shit. Stab him again, my brother from another mother. Bobby Smith is the embodiment of the Constitution.

Memo to thugs everywhere: Your time is up. The Heartland is pissed.

Later this week I'll patronize the pet store on Cleveland's east side where the owner engaged in a gunbattle against two punks. He tried to give them cash and let them leave but they attempted a cold-blooded murder spree.

"The owner of the pet shop, Nicholas Akoury, 37, of Valley City, told officers he has a permit to carry a concealed weapon and he shot one of the robbers with his .45-caliber Glock.

According to the incident report:

Two men wearing masks and armed with guns entered the store at 7:54 p.m. and demanded money from the register. They told Akoury he had five seconds to hand over the cash. One robber pointed a black handgun at Akoury while the other began counting.

Akoury handed them $600 and one robber said, "You got more money."

The armed suspect went into a back room where a customer was hiding and fired a shot, then headed back toward the door. The other suspect also ran toward the door, turned around and pointed a gun at Akoury, who pulled out his gun and fired three times.

One robber was struck. He fell, fired his gun, then got up and ran.

The customer in the back room did not wait for police to arrive. The bullet had struck a wall. The robbery was caught on surveillance video, which patrol officers viewed to confirm the store owner's version of events.

At 8:15 p.m., Cleveland Clinic staff called police to report that a man with gunshot wounds had been dropped off. Staff wrote down the car's license plate number and had video of the car and driver, who arrived at 8:05 p.m.

The patient's clothing matched the clothing the officers saw in the store's video, and he was notified that he was under arrest. He told officers three vague stories about what had happened; none involved the robbery.

He, and an officer, were then flown to MetroHealth Medical Center, where doctors said the suspect had four gunshot wounds -- in his left hand, right shoulder, upper back and right side. One bullet was removed and given to officers.

At 9:15 p.m., officers went to the address of the owner of the 1999 Chevrolet station wagon that had transported the injured suspect to the Clinic.

The car was parked in the driveway in the 2200 block of East 83rd Street. The other robbery suspect was inside the car. He had locked himself out of the house. Officers saw blood on the back seat.

He told police he had picked up his friend when he saw him staggering near East 81st Street and Carnegie Avenue, drove him to the Clinic, then picked up his friend's mother and drove her there.

The man in the car was arrested when officers didn't believe his story. The Plain Dealer will identify the suspects when they are charged."

The shitbags are 19-year-old Emanual Scott and 20-year-old Corey Parker. Motherfucker needs to pay for the helicopter ride.

Tough old coot. How can you help but like the guy?

Hi gang. Welcome Mr. Venlet.

I'm not going to comment on Charlie. He doesn't need my help.
