    Interestingly enough, on the very day that was posted on DU, all the major electronics retailers reported an unusual increase in computer keyboard sales and repairs.

    I wish the bouncy stories would continue to use the formula that they set up for better stories (cops, bushes, miraculous conversions, and "sticking it" to "Rethuglicans")
    Don't forget "Fundies," too, they make frequent appearances in DU's bouncy stories.

    Wee Willie Pitt got hit by a brick around the '04 election...is that what you were thinking of, Jumpy?

    I do have a number of the classic threads saved. Finding them is the problem...but I will. Gator and someone else reminded me of the cops/bushes thread today, so I thought I'd post it again.

    That would have been Will Pitt!

    So my boss was racially profiled last night....

    My boss is an American Indian. Last night, he was walking home and happened, for some unknown reason, to zigzag while walking on the sidewalk to his apartment, and a cop jumped out of the bushes and stopped him from entering, then proceeded to browbeat him for twenty minutes for no ******* reason....I guess his pretense was that his irregular walking pattern made the cop think he might be a drunken burglar.

    The weirdest thing about this story is that my boss, a couple years ago, was running down the street to return a video to Blockbuster on time (and he's an athletic guy, too, who enjoys running.)

    A cop stopped him and questioned him for over an hour and was prepared to arrest him on suspicion of burglary...or for just having dark skin.

    The kicker? It was the same cop, both times.

    I am not making this shit up.

    I just had a thought. (No, really!) These stories should be turned into flash animations. It'd be a hoot!

    So on top of everything else, some ass just smashed my face with a brick
    Yep. Just got back from the Kerry rally in Copley. Spent nearly eight hours standing in the cold rain and waind waiting for the word...and then the word came, and didn't come, and is hovering like doom...

    So I am walking in the back door of my apartment building, and I hear someone behind me. I turn, and this douchebag threw a brick at my head.

    He posts to the DUmp about the incident before he calls the cops? How phony can you get?! I bet there is no police report from that point in time.
