Headline of the day, week and month, all at once!


How many of you would expect to read a headline like this?

Sheriff Attacked by a Flying Dildo Riding a Drone


Nobody expects a flying dildo.

But that’s exactly what confronted Albuquerque Sheriff Manuel Gonzales III, whose campaign for mayor was dramatically interrupted at an event on Tuesday by a large sex toy attached to a drone. 

The drone hovered toward Gonzales as he was answering a confrontational question from a member of the audience, and it provoked nervous laughter from the crowd of about 70 people. Gonzales attempted to continue muddling through his answer, as a woman in the audience asked: “Is that a dong on a drone?” 

Sure enough, it was. 

The offending object was then snatched from the air by a man identified in the press as the owner of the establishment hosting the event, Revel Entertainment Center. 

The incident resulted in criminal charges for 24-year-old Kaelan Ashby Dreyer, who has reportedly been accused of punching Gonzales on his hands during a brief scuffle at the foot of the stage after the flying dildo was grounded and Dreyer tried to retrieve it.

There's more at the link, including video of the event.

I know that sheriffs and their deputies are supposed to arrest wrongdoers and bring them to court, where those deserving it can be sentenced to penal servitude . . . but I hadn't realized that there might be another aspect to "penal"!  Change a vowel, add an "e", and there you go!

you might even consider, though it has nothing at all to do with genitalia, the word "puerile"

Wasn't there a dildocopter incident in Europe a few years ago?

You had me fooled.

When I saw "flying dildo" and "drone", I assumed this would have to be something about the White House occupants.

Oh great, another thing we have to worry about, being droned to death by sex toys... Just don't drone me with a pink one, I hate the color pink.
