Note to Cops: When Testing New TASERS, Don’t Shoot the Duster Huffing Homeless Dude
Police in Columbus Ohio finally got their TASERS for the department. The very next day they went huntin’ for huffers behind the local Staples and found Dan Wood, homeless and high on Duster Spray. So they set their TASERS on Flambe’.
It didn’t take Lancaster police long to discover a potential danger with their newly issued stun guns: They can set their targets on fire.
One day after officers received Tasers this week, two of them were patting out the flames on Daniel Wood, a 31-year-old homeless man who reportedly had been inhaling a chemical from a spray can to get high.
“Clearly, this is not the way we’d hoped to get started,” Bailey said. “But I’m glad the suspect is OK, and this gives us an opportunity to review how we will do things from this point.”
Okay, this is funny enough if you just imagine the cops of Reno 911 shooting this wild-eyed mulletized vagrant. His last name is WOOD, so of course he’s flammable! But this money quote from Fox18 is even better:
“He was kicking his arms and flailing around a lot. The police officers warned him that they’d Taser him if he didn’t calm down. Of course he didn’t. When they hit him [with the Taser] he just went ‘poof,’” recalled Ellis. That “poof” was a fire that ignited on 31-year-old Daniel Wood’s chest.

Even the whacky Taiwanese animators are making fun of Obama’s drug taking past. And remember that Zombie story I blogged a couple of days ago? Turns out they had been smoking “bath salts” or some derivative of LSD. A drug that turns its users to zombies? Gadzooks! Like This Post? Rate it and tell your…

In the wake of Whitney Houston’s flame out, Tony Bennett found a microphone and urged a crowd of people to push for the legalization of all street drugs because he couldn’t handle another Amy Winehouse death, or Michael Jackson death or Whitney Houston death. What Tony actually said was: “First it was Michael Jackson, then…

Whitney Houston, a washed-up singer and actress, got blitzed on booze at a Hollywood party, then swallowed a few Xanax and drowned while trying to take a bath. All while TWO bodyguards were nearby. The only thing more hilariously pathetic than that is that Twitter rumors said she had been stung to death by wasps.…

Or something like that. Yahoo here says that Demi Moore was smoking salvia or something when she needed hospitalization. Boy this longest running episode of Punk’d just keeps delivering! Like This Post? Rate it and tell your friends! Click the Share button below.

So a cat’s dead. From being forced to smoke heroin. And Danielle Blankenship, the girl who was holding the cat while smoking heroin is now in jail. Not because it is a crime to smoke heroin, a powerful and often deadly narcotic- Nope, she killed a household pet. That’s punishable, not, apparently, smoking an illegal…

And apparently its full of sugar, which may explain his manic behavior lately. The image above is from Seth Patrick, a North Carolina artist I admire. He even has a print of a Norfolk VA theater, the Naro here. Be sure to check out his other prints. You know it is rare to see a…

A couple of clowns were captured and tortured then murdered by the Mexican Druglords, probably because those clowns were acting funny. A slow start fellas, let’s pick up the pace, shall we? From Fox here: Two street clowns were found dead in southeastern Mexico along with messages allegedly from a drug gang accusing them of…

To all those conservatives who used to complain that ebonics was not a language and did not need to be taught in school, Neeners to you, because the DEA is hiring someone with those unique language skills. From the SmokingGun here with thanks to Don: The Department of Justice is seeking to hire linguists fluent…

Actually, I’m not too sure how I feel about this at all. Guns in school? Mock gun battles? Calling a made-up trollop of a 5 year old a smack junkie? A mountain of popcorn that represents cocaine piled in front of a tiny cuban druglord? This is either very awful or totally EPIC. EMBED-Scarface School…
