Thanksgiving can be a wonderful holiday that allows you to think about all the joys that family & friends can bring. It can even be a special day where you can recognize those around you who make your life better. In fact, I did just that this morning on my sports’ blog. You can click that link to find out a little more about me and some of the Hippo crew.
I would have posted that whole story here as well, but the coding between the two sites is so radically different I would have had to redo it all and I’m just not that motivated today. Think of it as my pre-tryptophan down time.
Some of you might think that Thanksgiving is about turkey or pie or football. Others may view the day as a chance to take a moment of spiritual reflection. Still others may use it as an excuse to honor the early days of our country’s birth.
Whatever your personal take on the holiday, my guess is that you never thought of sitting naked in a van, while masturbating, and carrying a loaded gun as a great way to honor our Pilgrim forefathers.
Well, maybe that guy over to the left did, but the rest of you seem sane.
Buck Wolf from About.com reports that, thankfully for our editorial content, not everyone thinks like us.
When I see a topless women, I’m probably more inclined to call my friends rather than the police.
But a tip from a caller at a hotel parking lot in Naperville, Ill., led the cops to a woman who was sitting in a van naked from the waist up.
The topless woman, 44-year-old Vicki Myers, told police she was staying at the hotel with her sons and needed some “alone” time.
Police say Myers later said she was pleasuring herself in the car, which would explain the presence of “adult items that were used for self-pleasuring,” according to a report at TribLocal.com
But police said she also had a loaded Sig Sauer semi-automatic pistol under her seat. All I can say is good thing she didn’t confuse the two.
Thankfully, masturbation isn’t illegal — yet — but the police did have a problem with the whole loaded semi-automatic pistol thing.
Myers was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm… but there’s almost certainly going to be some awkward conversations in her future.
I do have to wonder, however, at what point in her day did this seem like a good idea? Where in the decision making process did she say “Hmm. I think I’ll just leave a couple of young kids unattended in a strange hotel so I can sit in the parking lot and diddle” and not realize the error of her ways?
Better yet, how do you explain the reason you need bail in the middle of the night?
Can you even think of calling a family member for this one?
On the plus side, I bet that every family member will be busting out the camcorders this year when she visits. Just think of all the possible You Tube moments.
