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

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!
