Saturday Night Showdown

Saturday night just seems to have that certain WOW factor you know? Lovers go on date night, singles go out to PAR-TAY, teens hang out with their friends, and the freaks start waving their flags!!! This past Saturday night was especially ripe for a freak show.

A man dressed as Frosty the Snowman was arrested during the annual Christmas parade in Chestertown, MD. Frosty says he became agitated after a dog-handling police officer tried to escort him away from the crowd. Sure hope there ain't no heaters in jail, 'cause you talk about agitation!!!! The guards are gonna be moppin' old Frosty up off the floor.

Down here in North Cackalacky, right up the road from where I live, a second grade teacher was arrested on Saturday night and charged with trafficking in opium or heroin. DANG, the budget cuts must be worse than people think. Pretty good paying gig I imagine if you don't get caught. Of course word on the street is that the best dealers are NOT users. That would make me feel better if my child was in her class.

Then in a sleepy little neighborhood, not unlike many others in the nation, a known substance abuser, affectionately called the "Vicodin Villain", bangs on his neighbor's door, clad only in a towel and tighty whities, and demands to be let in because his son is going to kill him. When he is refused entry, the Vicodin Villain parks his ass on his neighbor's rocking chair on their front porch and waits for the cops and ambulance to arrive. Eyewitness reports thought Baby Huey made a resurgence.

I don't know about you folks, but I can't wait for this coming Saturday night.  Grab yourself a glass of eggnog, sit back and enjoy the freak show.
