Having A Larf

Chris is having a lie in, so I am making him eggs and toast......I'm having a grey hair moment for I cant quite remember if I washed my hands after picking up a hard bit of poo from the stairs......

It'll be right.....

Anyhow I can hear Chris tittering at " Curse of the were Rabbit" which he's watching on his ipad.....and I've got to thinking just how important it is to have a good titter.

The Unalaska Police Force

The Unalaska Police Blotter has made me titter for several years now, and I think it's time to share this phenomenon with a wider audience. Unalaska is a small town situated on the tail of the Alaskan Aleutian Islands. An isolated " frontier town" Unalaska suffers from it's own very individual crime wave , which is chronicled by Sgt Jennifer Shockley, somewhat dryly in the Unalaska Police Blotter.
It makes for hilarious reading


Below is a snippet from the " tater-tot incident"
I loved it

03/15/15              Sun        0058       Assault – Two men got into a fight after one man, attempting to protect his buddy’s tater-tots, told the tater-taker that he was the bigger and badder man. The tater-tot skirmish ended with one bloody nose and two ripped shirts.
03/15/15              Sun        0100       Trespass – Officer issued a trespass advisement, per bar management, to a belligerent patron who was instigating altercations.
03/15/15              Sun        0111       Assault – A drunk who offered to help police with an assault investigation walked up to one of the tater-tot combatants, shoved him across the face and identified him by labeling him with a vulgar, Oedipus-type epithet. Brent D. Thomas, 45 yoa, was subsequently taken into custody for Harassment II.
03/15/15              Sun        0120       Trespass – Various people involved in the tater-tot skirmish were issued trespass advisements.

If you need a smile........have a look if you have a minute or three to spare......

  6. I love the image of Chris tittering to himself, watching Curse of the Were-Rabbit. If in doubt, wash your hands again before you grab that Scotch Egg.

  10. A good laugh, is good for the soul. Obviously that police department has a good outlook on their work. Don't take this life to seriously,

    1. Sounds quite a tough , alcohol dominated town... A sense of gumour seems vital

  11. Certainly a whole lot different from any crime report sheet here John I would think. Unless in our villages - I guess in yours the worst thing would be somebody trying to pinch Aunt Gladys's scones before you got your hands on them - or a Scotch egg theft from the local supermarket (but then I am sure you would be the chief suspect.)

  12. Why aren't those three in front wearing any trousers? And in Alaska too - brrrrrrrrr!

  13. Okay, I can just hear Samuel L. Jackson yelling in his next movie: "vulgar, Oedipus-type epithet!"

  14. I read police reports in my work all day. They are hysterical. I think they have mini competitions to see who can write the funniest, most outrageous reports and keep still within the rules. I didn't find these Alaskan ones particularly funny, sorry. Your dogs do a lot of shit don't they.....

  15. "told the tater-taker he was the bigger and badder man."

    "vulgar Oedipus-type epithet."

    Sgt. Jennifer Shockley may have missed her calling. Then again. Maybe not.

  18. It's a good job they have a great sense of humor, living in the Alaskan tundra would give even the best Morecome and Wise characters, a run for their money.
    Brilliant link :)

  19. Oh my god! Whoever writes these things has a fabulous sense of humor! "...vulgar, Oedipus-type epithet..."

  20. Ah, The Case of the Missing Tater Tots! Solved at last!

  21. So literary: "a vulgar, Oedipus-type epithet"

    ReplyDelete
  22. Forgot to ask... Was the vulgar epithet "Out, damned spot"?

  23. Thanks for the larfs, John!

    And, since you are a nurse, I know you washed your hands an extra time or two...

    ReplyDelete
  24. ...and so you washed your hands again, right? Just in case. Then you turned around and wondered if you washed your hands or if you were remembering washing your hands after picking up poo, as it seems like a repetitive action on your part...

  27. Is your country as obsessed with hand sanitizer as us yanks are? Every classroom-office-fast food place-even banks... has squirt bottles of this alcohol based gel available to everyone! Even grocery stores have sanitizer soaked napkins to wipe down handles on the grocery carts! Our immune systems are going to go into hibernation! On the other hand, I haven't had a cold in 2 years???
