Too bad it wasn't one of those damn gnomes

A group of devoted policemen successfully defend a quiet neighborhood.

Thank you, Diana!

Sheesh, what if the prowler's heart attack was the result of tripping over this replica at dusk? Could he sue? I'm afraid a posted sign might not be quite as effective as this!

Based on recent history, according to the conservation officer, it may possibly have been a real alligator...

Suddenly on blogger dashboard, Dr. G in the H is getting me a bunch of blog posts in...Turkish (maybe?) Is this my own private weird problem, or do others see anything similar?

Sherrill said...

The blog apparently linked to Dr. G (at least in my dashboard) is http://ksiazki-meme.blogspot.com/

A funny thing happened on the way to the RSS Feed for Dr Grumpy.

I got about 25 articles from a Polish blog, starting with this entry (http://ksiazki-meme.blogspot.com/2010/12/rozwiazanie-konkursu-nr-2-losowanie.html). Blogspot or Google Reader are having a bad day.

You should see all the trophies he brought back from the Jungle Cruise and the Country Bear Jamboree.

They could always used the tried-and-true Terminator cut-out. (Sorry, can't find the URL.)

FYI: There's something seriously weird going on with your rss-feed. Probably a Blogger's fault. Posts from this blog: http://ksiazki-meme.blogspot.com/2011/05/57-j-d-bujak-lista.html are showing up in your feed, which is rather confusing to those of us who don't read... Chech? whatever language that is. You might want to check with Blogger or something.

But the biggest kick I ever got
Was shooting a thing called the crocodile rock...

Almost as good as this!

Scrambled helicopters and the zoo on standby with tranquiliser darts...

Is anyone else getting Polish book reviews in their Dr. Grumpy feed instead of hilarious medical tales?

Quilla said...

Hi Grumpy, Somehow my RSS feed from you is full of Polish stuff today (28 items!)?

You've not been reading polish literature recently and suddenly speak polish?

http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20110526/WIRE/110529602/2416/?tc=obinsite I think they need to hire this kid to show those cops how to handle a gator.....

Nice shootin', Elmer Fudd!

Packer said...

Anyone get a handbag or shoes out of the deal?

Ms. Donna said...

They thought it was real, it looked real to them (how many gators does a police officer in Kansas see?) and it was in a public area. Gators can move real fast when they want to, so shooting it first was probably a good idea. Would all of you yucking it up at the officers expense want to see if Mr. Gator was in a good mood and didn't need to be shot?

The Conservation officer said it was OK to shoot, so they did. As long as they made sure so one was in the background, in the line of fire, it was rightous.

BTW, lest you think I do not have a sense of humor, yes, this was funny, yes, I got a chuckle (Thank you Dr! Best medicine I have taken today.) and yes, the story should have gone out. Just remember the officers in the squad room are having a field day. The poor officers probably have lockers FILED with rubber gators.
